Annual Reports Nothing can match the impact of a well-conceived and crafted annual report when it comes to communicating an enterprise’s journey and achievements in a year to its principal stakeholders. Our team has conceptualized and delivered many such projects for publicly listed companies with global operations.

Digital

We believe digital is the future of any business and rightly so. We have extensive experience developing and driving digital presence for brands be it through Websites, Apps or Email Marketing.

Digital/Online Editions We have engaging and interactive digital platforms (currently limited to websites) for our titles. This makes content consumption interesting not just for the readers but throws up exciting opportunities for our advertisers too.

We also have the competence to build apps for the App Store (Apple) and Google Play (Android). With additional content and extra images and videos our apps guarantee a bonus read, anytime, anywhere access and integrated social share features.

Email Marketing Information overload is making targeted communication critically important for driving desired outcomes from fragmented and distracted audiences. We allow advertisers to specifically target our entire readership database or a defined cross-section through online means to deliver a marketing message. Apart from that our daily newsletter can be sponsored for high impact branding. We do not send any unsolicited communication and all recipients of our newsletter and/or advertiser’s mailer have opted in for receiving them.

Websites Our bread and butter business requires us to run a robust web presence and this expertise can be deployed for building intuitive web properties for other businesses. Our web team brings together a unique blend of creative thinking, cutting-edge design sensibilities and technology know-how to deliver elegant user-centric solutions which meet your business objectives.

Events

As a reputed media house we have the right connections and credibility to organize B2B events in a collaborative setting bringing together various stakeholder communities.

Recognition Events Leveraging our credibility and influence as a catalyst for positioning Kerala as a tourism and investment destination, we hold recognition events celebrating entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership.

Expert Roundtable Another role we play as a responsible media house is to facilitate business to business (B2B) connections and interactions. By bringing experts from various stakeholder communities impacting a specific industry together, our Expert Round Tables help discover and highlight emerging opportunities and foster collaborations to succeed together.
