  • Young people are the biggest readers of digital newsbrands. 10.9 million people aged 18-34 read a newsbrand online each month – that’s 77% of the online population.Newsbrands perform even better when you look at more affluent readers, reaching 87% of ABC1 digital readers aged 18-34 each month, which is almost 7.8 million people.9.6 million (62%) people aged 35-54 read newsbrands on digital platforms each month and 5.6 million (53%) people aged 55+.
  • Young people who read newsbrands online are more influential than those who don’t. Across a wide range of products and sectors, they are more knowledgeable; more likely to talk to many different people about products and services; and more likely to convince people to buy them.

  • Amazon is the biggest online retailer in the UK.

The average 18-34 year old non-newsbrand reader spends 69 minutes on the site each month, the average 18-34 digital online newsbrand reader spends 91 minutes on amazon.co.uk each month.Similarly, on average, non-newsbrand reading 18-34s registered 95 page views over the month, whereas those who also visited newsbrand sites had an average of 135 page views on Amazon’s website.2 million young people visit Amazon more than 11 times each month. Over 1 million of these also visit newsbrand sites. Consequently, newsbrand readers significantly over-index for heavy Amazon users.
