What you get with the Realview newspaper solution:
“The Mildura Weekly has always had a digital version of our publication that sat passively on our website. Moving across to the Realview interactive technology has allowed us to more actively engage our digital readers through the subscription services. Now we don’t have to wait for people to remember our latest edition is available, subscribers are automatically prompted via an email alert when the new edition is published. The online readership of the Mildura Weekly doubled in the first 3 months of using the Realview technology and I have no hesitation in recommending this solution to other community newspapers.”
– Stuart Mensch, General Manager of Mildura Weekly
“The Tennant and District Times is a small, independent regional newspaper with a staff of four and representing an area roughly 448,576 km². When we had to turn our mind to a digital presence it seemed like a bridge too far until we discovered Realview. Being able to upload the same artwork we use for our printed version each week makes being on the web a breeze. The benefits have been that subscribers from out of town get to see the paper the same time as locals do. Whether they are just down the track or on the other side of the world, we are with them. It is an expansive platform with an exciting future and it does not require a big investment to get results.”
– Barry Nattrass, General Manager of The Tennant and District Times
“The Border Watch group of newspapers changed over from another provider of e-edition to Realview in the second half of last year. As with everything new, we did have minor teething problems however the way Realview responded to these small issues was commendable. The account manager we deal with is extremely obliging and helpful. The service Realview provide is very user friendly, easy to navigate and the advertising opportunities it offers you to on sell and reduce the cost of utilizing this digital platform is sensational. As a modern era digital provider I believe Realview excel.”
