THE online world continues to adapt and with it all of us are changing the way we communicate day-to-day.
The Business and our sister publication Agenda are no exceptions to this and our contact with readers and role in the business community have grown thanks to our online platform www.southwestbusiness.co. uk.
This site is part of the wider network www.thisis gloucestershire.co.uk, a platform which has experienced tremendous growth in the last 12 months.
Instead of employing more staff for your business to take advantage of an increasing opportunity to communicate and create business, why not bounce off the back of our digital success?
A total of 424,100 people visited www.thisisgloucestershire. co.uk in December, a 51 per cent rise year-on-year. This included more than 850,000 visits and nearly four million page views. This is up 38 per cent and 13 per cent on December 2011 respectively.
Changing technology has also had a huge impact on our readers.
More than 82,000 visited our site using a mobile phone during December, up 96 per cent from the 12 months previously and 56,000 through a tablet, up 386 per cent.
These figures speak for themselves.
Southwest business.co.uk is experiencing similar success with almost 20,000 unique visitors per month.
The website, launched little over six months ago, is the only specialist business website for Gloucestershire. It is also the only regional newspaper website with a news briefing emailed out live every morning and to more than 8,000 key business people across Gloucestershire, Bristol and Bath.
The website, as well as www.thisisgloucestershire.co.uk, and news briefing is adaptive to your phone, tablet and laptop.
To sign up to the news briefing visit www.southwestbusiness.co.uk and scroll down to the bottom of the page to enter your email address. You will be asked to fill in a short form with your name and postcode.
Thousands of web users search our sites every month for jobs, motors, homes and to read about the latest business news and opportunities in the county.
