INNERGY to be embedded on Facebook in May 2012
As we continue to grow and expand our audience we are excited to announce in May our entire magazine will be embedded on Facebook. It is a breakthrough for us to continue growing because 80% of our readers are internet Swingers. It means most of our Readers are already online when they view us and come to our site through Social Network pathways. In the past in order to view our magazine readers have had to click on a link which then takes them to our Hosting Site to view it. In May, the entire magazine will be visible on any Facebook Page and can be copied, shared, and posted on other pages on Facebook. It makes the reading experience even more advanced when you don’t have to navigate from the social site you love just to view the magazine. We estimate it will attract more than 100,000 more readers per issue.
April Issue hits more than 5,000 views in 2 Weeks
Our April issue hit 500 Reads in the first 24 Hours and hit more than 5,000 Reads in the first two weeks. The numbers also show 64% of our Readers are Women. While a comfortable balance will never be settled, CEO Roosevelt Wright, III feels the numbers reflect American Readers. Women read magazines more than men across the board. Adding new writers and including articles of varied perspectives are some of the immediate essentials he plans to use to broaden the base a little more.
