“Research has shown that while there may be more platforms to distribute news, the key to getting people to read remains the content. We are determined to provide that unique content,” he said.
He said the digital platforms have transformed thepost into a daily newspaper by feeding content – both text and videos – onto the Newsbot as and when the news breaks out.
Chapatarongo said there has been a surge in subscribers for thepost’s innovative platform called the Newsbot through which readers can access news on WhatsApp in the last two weeks.
“This is an excellent platform for advertisers to reach a wider audience. Given the current trend, we are on course to reach our target of 60 000 new subscribers in the next two months,” he said.
