Leading Colombian news source, El Tiempo has selected the Viafoura Audience Development Platform in Spanish to support them in growing a vibrant online community.
Germán Sánchez, Senior Head of Digital, comments, “It’s important for us to know our readers and give them a space to discuss local news in a meaningful way. Viafoura’s platform gives our audience many opportunities to engage with one another, and gives us a deeper understanding of our readers.”
El Tiempo has been a leader in the Colombian newspaper industry for over 100 years, but recently faced a unique set of challenges with the addition of an online presence. The media company wanted to deepen audience engagement with their brand, but struggled with an outdated commenting platform and a lack of engagement tools. After evaluating a number of vendors, El Tiempo selected the Viafoura Audience Development Platform for its variety of engagement and analytics tools.
We love that we can deliver a personalized experience to our readers where they can easily connect to the people and news that matter most to them.
