Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is MANSI Media?

Formally known as Mid-Atlantic Newspaper Services, Inc., the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association created this affiliate in 1992 to help simplify the newspaper placement process for clients and advertising agencies. With one phone call or email, MANSI Media representatives can manage any local, regional, national or international print or online advertising campaign. From providing research and planning advice to flawless placement and billing, MANSI Media makes buying newspaper and online advertising a breeze.

Q: What is the difference between MANSI Media and a rep firm?

A: With just one phone call or email from you, MANSI Media will place your ad campaigns in any newspaper or online outlet anywhere in the world. Our special partnerships with other national and international newspaper associations allow us to place campaigns at the same ad rates as if you had placed it yourself. Rep firms, on the other hand, maintain relationships with a limited number of specific newspapers therefore restricting the scope of services they can provide.

Q: Which newspapers work with MANSI Media?

A: You name it! From media giant The New York Times to your local weekly shopper and all publications in between, we have relationships with them all. Looking for an ethnic, alternative, college or international publication? We can help you with that!

Q: How is MANSI Media able to place ads across the nation?

A: We maintain and manage an extensive network of partner associations nationwide. This network allows us to provide research, quotes and order placements anywhere. Our relationships provide the same information and knowledge of a local newspaper outlet from any location, anywhere.

Q: Will the best available rates be captured for our ad campaign?

A: Our clients pay the same rates as if they had placed the ads themselves. The process is easy and effective. Our staff of experienced media professionals can handle placements from traditional ROP ads to special products like targeted inserts, post-it notes or newspaper Web site campaigns. We will always make sure that you get the best rate available for your ad.

Q: Can MANSI provide research services for media outlets with or without placement of an ad campaign?

A: Yes. We’re happy to provide you with detailed information for any newspaper outlet anywhere - saving considerable time and expense for our clients. We do request, however, that if our research leads to a placement decision, the order is placed through MANSI Media.

Q: Do I have to establish credit at each paper across the nation?

A: No. You fill out one credit application with MANSI Media and you are set to advertise anywhere.

Q: Will our current newspaper reps still handle our business if we work with MANSI Media?

A: Yes. Established representatives at each newspaper will continue to place the order. Provide us a list of your current contacts and we will do the rest.

Q: Will I receive invoices and tearsheets form each individual newspaper outlet?

A: No. You receive an itemized invoice listing the publication of each ad placement, the placement date, the rate and the amount due. MANSI Media will collect all tearsheets. Clients receive one package of tearsheets, a detailed report and one invoice to pay.
