Business Day Newspaper, Ghana’s most trusted business newspaper, has launched its online digital platform, known as Business Day Digital to offer its readers incisive coverage of all major national and international business and financial news, with a specific focus on the Ghanaian economy, oil and gas, companies and financial markets.
Business Day Digital, launched last week, is the digital identity of the newspaper, including apps for iPhones, iPads, Android devices, BlackBerry, personal computers, and a responsive website (http://www.businessdayghana.com).
The next-generation website, a key development in the continued digital evolution of Business Day, features more multimedia content, endless scrolling and a mobile-first design.
The platform also offers important new revenue opportunities for Business Day as it looks to shift revenue from print to digital sources. Premium content will be emphasized to encourage digital subscriptions, while clearly-marked native advertising and sponsored content will be incorporated.
The platform also offers group subscriptions, which allow companies, organizations and education institutions to purchase digital access for a set number of authorized users, under one bill and at a discounted rate.
Written by top award winning journalists and financial analysts, Business Day Newspaper is targeted at corporate decision-makers, policy makers, Business Schools, as well as international institutions, companies and investors with interest in Ghana and beyond.
The 56-page coloured newspaper has exclusivity to Harvard Business Review and Financial Times (UK) contents. With a circulation of 30,000 across the nation, the paper is targeted at corporate decision-makers and policy makers, Business Schools, as well as international institutions, companies and investors with interest in Ghana and beyond.
Business Day Digital is a digitally native news outlet for business people in Ghana and the new global economy. The digital edition will also serve as the readable replica of the print version of the newspaper. The page layout, advertisements and numbering are similar. These editions can be accessed through: PCs, IPad, Tablets and Smartphones.
The Chief Executive Officer and the Editor-in-Chief of Business Day, Felix DelaKlutse, told the media that: “Business Day digital will provide exclusive video interviews, as well as up-to-the-minute videos from across the world, and will be available on virtually any device that has an internet connection, including personal computers, tablets, and smartphones.”
