Stepping into the 9th Year:
Daijiworld Sets Foot into Print Media - Weekly Tabloid to Hit Stands Soon
Janu 14, 2009
We are already into the second week of the New Year – 2009 - a rather challenging year for us in many ways. Daijiworld.com which took birth on 14 January 2001, is today eight years old. In the past eight years daijiworld.com has witnessed phenomenal growth in all spheres and has emerged as a major and fearless media portal of Coastal Karnataka which serves people from all walks of life spread all over the globe.
Our journey in the year 2008 has been most challenging and fruitful one as compared to the earlier years of our existence. We faced several unexpected challenges from different quarters. Many incidents that occurred during the past year are surely fresh in the minds of our readers, some of which are sad and sensitive by nature. Yet Daijiworld stood up and faced the challenges and covered the events and issues with courage and conviction. Every member of daijiworld network team has contributed his / her best to make daijiworld what it is today – the numero uno portal of Coastal Karnataka. We have the satisfaction of presenting unbiased news and views facts to thousands of our committed readers scattered in different corners of the globe.
It is an accepted fact that no media in this world can fully cater to the needs of every individual. In an era where people fight on the pretext of caste, creed, religion and language, it is extremely difficult to make every individual happy. We too have fallen short of catering to and satisfying the wishes of every individual. But we are happy and proud to proclaim that we have succeeded in touching the hearts of a vast majority of people who have appreciated our efforts, vision and mission and showered us with accolades and praises from time to time.
While maintaining our good work we have entered into several new ventures and tried to keep pace with the fast developing technology. As readers may be aware, daijiworld.com was the first to launch the Internet TV concept from Mangalore and it still runs successfully, showing gradual improvements with each passing day. Now we are looking for newer options to serve our readers better. At this juncture, daijiworld is pleased to announce to its esteemed readers that it is soon launching an English weekly tabloid, 'Daijiworld Weekly'.
Based on the intensive survey conducted by our team in the last eight months, we have found that we need to venture into the print media. In order to reach each and every household of coastal Karnataka we felt the need to get into the print media where we can put across our innovative ideas, news and views, analysis, opinions, current affairs, special columns for youth, kids and women etc., and thus encourage a new taste of reading among the public. This weekly will act as a conduit that bridges the gap between the people of the coastal belt of Karnataka and the NRI’s scattered all over the world.
The Weekly will be promoted under the banner of a new company namely 'Daijiworld Publications Pvt Ltd'. Ten professionals representing different communities of the coastal belt will be drafted into the editorial board headed by an experienced and qualified editor-in-chief. Concerted efforts will be made to build and strengthen our distribution network.
In the coming weeks the Weekly will come out with trial edittions and eventually a full-fledged hard copy publication will reach every corner of the world as well as every home of coastal Karnataka. More details on the Weekly will be disclosed during the launch of the weekly.
All these years we have been supported by our advertisers and sponsors, who have been instrumental in helping us to run the website successfully. The Weekly tabloid will also be run by the support of our advertisers as well as subscribers. Our marketing team will soon start the subscription campaign and we request our readers to subscribe to our weekly and support the further growth of 'daijiworld'.
On the auspicious day of Makara Sankranti, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to each and everyone who has been responsible for the growth of daijiworld. The year 2008 has shown a growth of 27% in our daily viewership and we hope that this trend will continue this year too with the patronage of our readers and well wishers.
Without our readers, advertisers, our committed staff, contributors, representatives world-wide and advertising agencies we would not have been able to see the dawn of this happy day. We owe everything to you dear patrons and we continue to seek your blessings in every step we take.
We assure you that the year 2009 will be even better, a year that will bring many glorious changes in our website. We are sure that our website daijiworld.com and our up-coming English weekly will further strengthen our bond.
On behalf of the Staff and Management of Daijiworld Media Pvt Ltd, I wish you all a bright and prosperous new year!
