It’s no small accomplishment to launch a new magazine, newspaper, Web site or any other news-oriented product. It takes dedication, staff and cash. So when a new pub hits the streets, we should celebrate.
The Charleston, S.C.-based company where I work, Setcom Media Inc., has launched a new quarterly statewide business magazine, SCBIZ. The first issue came out about a week ago and we’re getting great reviews. Setcom Media’s primary product is the Charleston Regional Business Journal, a bi-weekly business publication focused on local news. So going statewide was a big step for this 11-year-old company.
Not only is SCBIZ a print magazine, it’s an online venture with a new Web site and a new daily e-mail, SCBIZ Daily, that offers a roundup of business news from South Carolina. The e-mail hits Inboxes Feb. 26 and it will be exciting to watch these online efforts grow and expand.
What’s your company up to these days? How is it using new media and technology? How are readers/viewers responding? Send me an e-mail at email@example.com or post a comment.
