GateHouse Media Launches AAM Brand View for 71 Publications

March 11, 2019

How the publisher is using Brand View to boost brand visibility across its network.

Kevin Rehberg, Vice President, Client Development


GateHouse Media, one of the largest publishers of local media in the U.S., recently launched AAM Brand View profiles for all their AAM media properties, increasing their total to 71 profiles available in AAM’s Media Intelligence Center.

Brand View helps publishers share images, video, promotional text and high-impact graphs and charts alongside AAM-verified data. In the second half of 2018, Brand View profiles saw 92 percent more engagement over other Media Intelligence Center activity such as viewing PDF statements.

The GateHouse team focused on creating a consistent look and feel across profiles for all titles, and the profiles exhibit some best practices we’ve seen. Let’s take a look at a few profiles to see how GateHouse Media is using Brand View to share their comprehensive brand stories with media buyers.


The Providence Journal

The Providence Journal uses its overview page to highlight its offerings to advertisers, including audience reach across print, online and mobile devices. In addition to easily connecting advertisers with their digital marketing team via a quick link, the Providence Journal’s audience tab gives an overview of reader demographics including reach by income, age and gender.

The Herald-Tribune uses its overview page to blend company history with community flavor through video, images and descriptive text.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal

Daytona Beach News-Journal Brand View profile: Print distribution page

This news media company serving Florida’s Volusia and Flagler counties uses its print distribution tab to feature a snapshot of its total audience.
