  • But it’s all about ROI, isn’t it. So let’s first look at the stats, and then the user feedback.We launched mid February this year, and although our unique aren’t high by any standards ... The growth is impressive.
  • Once again, doesn’t come close to the sport and news sites … but in terms of a branded recipe site, the growth in 6.5 months makes us proud.
  • We use our users to provide insights into what they want.For example:We discovered that despite our weariness of jamie olivier, the TASTE people want moreWe tested two print covers in august to see which one would work – Guess which one won? Pizza 810 / snoek 316We ran an online-only soup competition, that was supported across in the mag, on the WW site and social media – which generated fantastic involvement, and closes the loop by taking the winning recipe in-store for purchase. (it was not the Indian Viagra soup!)

  • The only real test…
    … what are the users saying?
  • I am thrilled that Woolies are finally onboard ...with a recipe site. Unfortunately I can no longer afford to subscribe to your magazine – it breaks my heart but there you go ...thank you it’s wonderful you are finally willing to share your secrets with us.
  • LOVE the new website!  Am creating my online recipe book as I type this!  What a treat
  • I would just like to congratulate you on a fabulous website.  I spend a lot of time “surfing” and find your site the best by far.  No matter what I am looking for, the information can be easily obtained without any annoying unwanted pop-ups. 
  • What an incredible creation. I cannot express to you how fabulous I think your site is. At first glance, I had thought it may turn out to be just another website that looks great but is revolting in terms of actual functionality.
    But this site seems to keep all of the promises it makes to the eye. I LOVE the online recipe book and its interactivity. The entire site is just a well-oiled machine. What clever people you are! Keep up the good work- please!
  • The sneaky – “Appropriate-ness”
    ... With more on the way!
  • Lessons learned
    • It’s you … or someone else
    • One-dimensional brands are over
    • Don’t miss out on opportunities to interact
    • Custom publishers understand
    • Most importantly, it’s what the readers wanted.
  • A beautiful match
    The right custom publisher can help marketers and brand managers do their jobs better .
    They are consumed with how best to relay a message, engage better, inspire more and communicate effectively.
  • Print versus online
    Questions, comments and arbitrary chit-chat?
  • Thank you.
