SmartSource Delivers Largest Sunday Newspaper Coupon Insert In Company History On Sunday, January 6th

Blockbuster Issue Promises Unprecedented Savings

NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To help consumers lighten their financial load after the holiday season, SmartSource, the premier coupon distributor in North America, is kicking off the new year with an unprecedented quantity and array of savings. News America Marketing (NAM), a division of News Corporation (NASDAQ: NWS), today announced that on Sunday, January 6th, 2013 the SmartSource Magazine coupon insert will be the largest in the company's history.  Multiple inserts will be required in most markets in order to deliver up to 132 pages of coupons and savings, a record number for a single date.

"We recognize the need to get the most out of every dollar throughout the year, and especially after the holidays," said Chris Mixson, President, News America Marketing. "Consumers are always looking for more ways to save, particularly at the beginning of the year, so the timing of our largest collection of coupons appearing the first Sunday in January is perfect."

News America Marketing worked with some of the largest consumer packaged goods companies in the nation in a quest to fill the special January 6th insert with high-value savings offers.  Consumers will find up to $100 in savings on everyday products from top brands.  Each market can expect to see a larger number of coupons than they see in their usual weekly insert, with variations in each market based on brand participation. One of the additional books many markets will see is the "New Year, New You" themed insert that contains savings on many health and wellness related items and includes a sweepstakes for a spa getaway for two.

"January 6th is going to be a blockbuster date for coupon clippers," said West Naze, EVP of Sales, News America Marketing. "Our retail and packaged goods clients recognize the loyal following and engagement of the SmartSource consumer. We are thrilled to be publishing this record number of coupons which will provide shoppers a fantastic opportunity to further stretch their hard-earned dollars."

News America Marketing has introduced a number of online, mobile and digital savings products over the past year, with the SmartSource Xpress app for iPhone launching in 2013.  However, proving that they are still a force to be reckoned with, free standing inserts (FSIs), a stalwart of the marketing mix since the early 70s, continue to perform at or near record-setting levels. In 2011, over 311 billion coupons were distributed, with FSIs accounting for 88% of them, dwarfing all other forms of coupon distribution (2012 Coupon Trends, Inmar).

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
