For effective marketing, advertise with us

Fact about advertising online
BUSINESSES thrive when they invest on promotional mediums where customers are. A new media platform has proven effective in this digital age and era. It is none other than ONLINE ADVERTISING.
In the United States, Online advertising has attracted millions of readers in recent years. Where readers are, businesses follow.
In New Zealand and Australia, large newspapers (Fairfax group) have closed doors and lay-off workers because readers and businesses are turning to online news and advertising.
In our neighbouring PNG and Fiji, Online News Services are leading over newspapers (PNG Loop, Fiji Live).
The digital wave is finally reaching our shores. Most urban dwellers including those in the provinces are accessing the 3G network thus internet even in rural areas on their phones and tablets nowadays.
This means reading newspapers is evidently diminishing and will soon become a thing of the past in this digital age and time.
Data provided by BeMobile and Our Telekom in 2016 to the International Telecommunication Union show 58,000 people are mobile phone users, 46% of them internet users.
This is overwhelming evidence compared to the 3000 circulation produced daily by newspapers to only town residence.

Born on Facebook, SFB has already attracted almost 10,000 members and readers before diverting the attention of that mass following onto our newly created News Website.

Solomon Fresh-Beat Online’s readership and audience penetration is outstanding.

Why advertise on the Web?

As newspaper readership continues to decline, people are turning to the Internet as their primary news source. In fact, surveys conducted in our neighbouring developed countries found that the Web surpassed newspapers as an information source in 2008 — and use of the Web over newspapers has expanded rapidly, forcing many newspapers to reduce operations or close doors.

In the Solomon Islands, the digital era has just begin. In the past few years, more and more people were found to have turned to the Web for quick answers in terms of news, business and marketing. Mobile users in the Solomon Islanders has reached a whooping 58,000, 46 per cent of whom are active internet users – this is an overwhelming figure of over 26,000. Compared to newspapers, they only circulate 2000 to 3000 copies a day with some return (unsold).

As Solomon Islands prepare to connect to the outside world via the undersea cable (project progressing), there is certainly going to be a turnover in terms of news, advertising and marketing and internet user numbers.

There is evidence that more and more people are turning to the web as a living source of everything in the Solomon Islands.

Moreover, people who get their news from the Web tend to be younger and well educated, a sought-after demographic for businesses.

There isn’t a better way to reach a wider and unique audience than with an advertisement on Solomon Fresh-Beat Online.
