Why Advertise With Us?
The-Latest.Com website was launched online in beta form in January 2006, as Britain's first dedicated citizen journalism news portal. The target readership is 40,000 visitors a day. The website is constantly updated with editorial material supplied by contributors once it has been edited by professional journalists. International print and broadcast media have used stories originated by us. The-Latest.Com has become Europe's largest and most influential English-language citizen journalism website.
The-Latest uses established online direct marketing and other distribution channels implemented through our wide readership and contributor base. Because websites are a high profit and high margin business, we have used sharply focused multi-dimensional sales, marketing and news media methods to build up our readership as quickly as possible. These techniques are similar to the ones employed to establish a base of almost 40,000 ordinary contributors to South Korea's highly successful OhMyNews website.
