Jackson Free Press


The Jackson Free Press gives your business, service or organization a cost-effective way to reach more than 37,000 readers per week in print, more than 30,000 weekly visitors on the Web, and 129,051*cume readers in the Jackson DMA when you run a sustained campaign.

Who are these readers?

20s-50s Adults. The majority of readership is 21-54 in age (Average Age: 43.7; Median Age: 42.) 53% of our readers are female. As Jackson’s most widely distributed newsweekly — over 700 locations! — we reach people in all parts of Jackson, throughout the Metro and into Vicksburg and Warren County.

Affluent and Educated. Over 67% of our readers have household incomes of $30,000 or more per year and 43% make over $50,000 a year. We have 34,500 readers who report a household income of $75,000 more more. Over two-thirds have attended college and over half have a degree.

Foodies and Music Fans. As you might guess, JFP readers are more likely than most Jackson media consumers to spend their nights and weekends in sit-down restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and they’re among the most frequent attendees at plays, college sports and rock concerts.

Family Consumers. What you may not know, however, is that 47 percent have kids in the household and over 15,000 of our readers plan to buy a mid-sized car in the next 12 months.

Audience Size. Start with this factoid — JFP has more cume adult readers than any local radio station has cume adult listeners in the Jackson Metro. And we’ve got more cume adult readers in the Jackson DMA than any other weekly or monthly.

Print ads are content. All those readers rely on the JFP to help them plan what they’re going to do this evening and weekend. It’s the perfect place to put your message, because many of our readers consider the ads important content!

Affordable marketing. Our rates are extremely competitive, with ad packages as low as $50 per week. (Classifieds are even less.) We offer comprehensive service for our small business clients, including art design, consultation and service after the sale.

We’re big on digital, too. Want more? We offer Web and mobile advertising on our JFP properties and we’ll even design your website and handle your social media for you! (See JFPSites.com for details on site building.)
