For this review, I would like to go into detail about what Newspapers Alive is and what you can expect from the service if you do decide to join. If you are looking for a review that explains just about every aspect of NPA then you landed on the right page. I’ve actually signed up so I know what I’m talking about 🙂
First a Warning!
Long Review, but hey, you want answers to your questions right.
What is Newspapers Alive all about?
Newspapers Alive is a newspaper advertising co-op founded in 2016 by Internet Marketing expert, Benjamin
Harris. Newspapers Alive or “NPA” for short has become a very popular marketing resource for creating and growing an online business through offline newspaper classified ads.
Newspapers Alive is more than just a marketing platform. The service has a huge nationwide advertising reach (Canada as well) that is very much plug & play, offering its members guidance and support along the way.
Who is Newspapers Alive designed for?
Although NPA is recommend for beginners, they provide training for people with different skill levels, from newbie’s up to skilled marketers. Newspapers Alive makes the program accessible for everyone, including those who cannot afford to pay high prices for training or have a limited budget.
Here is some of the audience that NPA offers its services to:
– Affiliate Marketers
– Local businesses and companies
– Online merchants
– Local marketers
– People that wants to build their own website(s)
– People that want to sell their products online
– Retired people looking for an additional income
– Individuals looking a trusted hosting platform
– People who want to turn their hobby into an additional income
– Bloggers and website owners that want to improve their web sites.
– The list is ongoing, but I am sure that you already see the benefits.
What you should NOT expect from Newspapers Alive…
NPA is not an mlm program and you do not need to build a massive down line to make money from the program. You are not required to sell NPA itself. The platform guides you through making money via the system set in place, as well as the vast video tools that guide you through successfully setting everything up.
Unless you are a skilled marketer, you will probably not get rich overnight. For NPA is not a “get rich quick” scheme. The platform will help you grow a large online business steadily, regardless of what program or website you are promoting that will endure for a long time, along with active support to make sure you are never “doing it alone”.
How much does it cost to join Newspapers Alive?
Traffic packages start at a $60.00 a month investment all the way up to $399.00 a month.
Newspapers Alive General Overview Bullet Point Style
The Newspapers Alive team runs hundreds of home business classified ads across America with a large variety of “catch all” urls. One of these url’s is placed at the bottom of each ad. When the newspaper buyer sees the ad and enters the url within that ad into their computer browser, they are then forward to a single NPA members offer page (and signs up to the offer).
- Each NPA member has the opportunity to fully customize their own “offer page” with their own website link, that is then presented to each of the 200+ visitors that visit their page every single day.
- Depending on what traffic package each NPA member chooses, they will receive between 200 unique visitors
per day, all the way up to 2200 unique visitors per day
- NPA’s nationwide newspaper traffic campaign is divided into 10 zones (each zone representing a
geographical location within the USA)
- Each NPA member chooses three zones to receive traffic at any given time and is allowed to rotate traffic
zones every seven days
- NPA has an optional affiliate program that pays money on referals and also the ability to unlock highly
coveted bonus traffic from Canada
- NPA offers fast, friendly & prompt customer support
Is Training Provided?
Yes, full training and mentoring is provided every step of the way should you decide you need it. The NPA system is so very simple to setup and get into profit, even the most newbie marketer will have no problems doing so.
However, if you choose you can utilize the training tools provided to fast track your success even further, including videos covering topics such as zone choice strategies, offer page targeting, advanced support mentoring, etc.
Coaching and Support – Customer support is responsive and helps members with any issues that they might run into. CEO Benjamin Harris actively participates with support tickets along with senior members to answer questions. This is by far the most user-friendly support system I have ever witnessed.
Questions and Answers…
What type of commitment do I need to make if I signup to Newspapers Alive?
Each membership level is monthly and you are able to cancel at any time without penalty.
Can I get a refund?
Yes, Newspapers Alive offers an industry leading Double Money Back Guarantee that is as follows:
“We are so confident in our ability to scale our newspaper traffic campaign, we assure the unique visitor
minimum will be EXCEEDED daily for all 3 packages.If we are unable to fulfill our promise during your
current month of advertising, we will promptly issue a full refund upon request. In ADDITION we will send a
certified bank draft of an ADDITIONAL months fees to you via FedEx Next Flight® Yep, we are that confident
in the high conversion rates and deliverability of our newspaper traffic. You have nothing to lose and
everything to gain (even double your money back.)
*If we are not able to supply your offer page with the amount of traffic promised within each 24 hour

Are there any up-sells?
No, the membership levels do not require you to purchase any additional services or tools. The memberships are fixed at $60 a month, $125 a month or $399 a month. This includes all back office tools and access to all the training.
Is there a chance that I will not succeed?
Yes, there is. If you join the program in hopes to make thousands within days it is not the place for you. If you think that you will become rich without doing much, then you should probably move on. Building a successful online business takes time, hard work and total dedication, you do not need NPA if you do not want to learn while you make money.
Is Newspapers Alive International?
Yes, you can join from any country that supports credit card payments. (Visa, MasterCard, diners card and so forth.) It would be pointless to make money online if you do not have a credit card to conduct business.
Do You Even Need A Program Like NPA?
Within the last few years, I have done some extensive research into programs that claim to help new as well as advanced marketers build themselves an online business. Finding a suitable program that will help my readers without milking them for money is no easy task, for most platforms are too expensive without quality, they have no support or lack basic training.
I personally tested many programs to give good feedback that will benefit most skill levels and personalities.
Due to my own experience with several programs, I know that new marketers need a structure to get them going and that would be:
Affordability – New and even existing marketers have limited funds, most people start on a small budget and simply cannot afford to pay for expensive advertising or constant upgrades. When individuals see all the upgrades or up-sells for different products or services, they automatically enter a negative mindset because they know that if they do not earn quickly, they will lose a huge sum of money. Newspapers Alive has three affordable options and members can use the program for a month at a time without any obligations, especially if they are not sure about the direction they want to take in the online industry. Each membership level is at a fixed rate and that gives members the freedom to work on a budget without having to worry about working harder just to upgrade to another level.
All in one platform – Again, I am looking out for my readers when it comes to finances. To become successful, we all need additional services like tech support, an html offer page editor, affiliate earning potential and various tools to run our businesses successfully. These services and tools can add up to an expensive amount when you put it all together, and new as well as existing online entrepreneurs struggle
immensely to keep up when they don’t earn from the internet right away. Newspapers Alive has done a great job to add the essential tools and services into one “ALL INCLUDED” platform to give new marketers that crucial head start.
Support – This would be the most important part for me since I believe that new online entrepreneurs are not able to get successful by themselves. People who have absolutely no clue about earning an income online enter this industry on a daily basis and the World Wide Web has tons of “money making” programs, products and tutorials that confuse new marketers badly and even cause a massive amount of people to fall for scams or empty promises. It has been proven that most successful online marketers had some kind of mentor or support program that guided them into becoming successful. Newspapers Alive provides one on one support and training, making it easy for newbie’s to feel comfortable with the aspects of building their businesses.
Unlike many other online gurus, Ben Harris the creator and CEO of Newspapers Alive is actively involved within his own membership site and even answers questions personally – That alone shows the great amount of dedication NPA has when it comes to helping members.
Ok now that I’ve laid some groundwork, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this review…
My Personal Results Using Newspapers Alive –
I began my own journey with this program on December 1st, 2016. I signed up with choice #2 which is their “intermediate” package. The first thing I noticed in the back office, was the very clean looking layout that presented “getting started” steps along with corresponding training videos, all with a very clean looking and organized format. I watched the first training video that walked me through my first step, which was zone selection. There was some very interesting information provided in terms of why choose one zone over another. A few of the strategy’s included personality traits that differ from state to state and population variation. The strategy I decided to start out with had nothing to do with hi tech algorithms or any of that fancy stuff. I simply decided to choose the three states that I have family living in, California, New Mexico and Colorado. The traffic zones being 6, 8, and 9. I figured this would be a good strategy as any as I could start out with my three lucky zones and take some time to dig a bit more into some other strategies down the road.
Next up was editing my offer page. Very easy to get something off here quickly. All I did my first time was enter a few lines of basic text followed by my raw website url at the bottom of the message. One thing I can’t stress enough of when dealing with safelists or email biz opp leads of any kind, is to present your website link uncloaked. Why would I do this when you can’t track your links this way you may ask? My experience confirms to me that people are hesitant to click bizarre looking tracking links, and offering the most simple basic link possible ensures the highest click-through response. And add to that, Newspapers Alive gives every one of their members fully integrated tracking stats that tracks how many visitors their offer page receives daily as well as how many click-throughs you get to the link you promote.
I have been an active NPA member for just under three months at the time I am writing this review, and after going through my whole back log of tracking stats, I can report that I have not had a single day where my daily visitor quota was not met. Also, of note and more importantly, I am averaging a click-through-rate of close to 50% which is quite frankly phenomenal. This CTR also came from promoting a variety of affiliate driven Internet Marketing programs at varying price points. So if you are curious if your specific offer may or may not convert, don’t be. Some of the programs I myself have promoted include the following: My Funnel Empire, PaySpree Sniper, and Take Surveys For Cash. These programs are very straight forward with an “easy to digest” investment required. Going forward into next month I plan on swapping in two other programs I am excited about, which have been around for quite awhile now and are already very established. Those program are All In One Profits and SaleHoo.
For me personally, I am very happy to report that this Newspapers Alive program has literally been a license to print money. I made my first sale in less than one week in and it has only gotten better since then. However, I have emailed back and forth with a few other Newspapers Alive members that didn’t earn they’re first commission until the third week for one person and even later for the second person, into month two. What I take from this is that Yes, everyone will make money with this program but it might take some time. How much time depends on many factors which can effect the speed of results ie. what traffic package you choose, what combination and sequence of zones you select, how you design your offer page, how you choose to follow up with interested buyers etc.
I’d like to wrap up this review by saying thanks for reading and making it all the way to the end. I strongly suspect that you’re an internet marketer just like myself, always on the lookout for effective advertising methods to promote your online programs… and with advertising site admins losing access to their PayPal account every single day for breaking vague terms of service agreements, finding effective
advertising tools that actually WORK is more important now than ever.
Newspapers Alive gets a solid two thumbs up approval from me!
