At, we’ve been testing our hunches and turning on digital dimes since we launched in 2009. We hoped that by deploying a content strategy that paced the fast-moving contemporary culture news of our region, national and international traffic would build. It has. In 2012, AdobeAirstream welcomed 332,000 overall site visitors and 142,000 unique visitors. We hoped to engage our audiences. We have. Visitors spend seven minutes at a time. They read posts, look at slideshows, listen to podcasts, watch videos. We hoped to demonstrate that great content wins loyalty and credibility not just for our site but for our advertisers. It has. More than 40% of our subscribers open and forward our email blasts. We hoped our innovative digital ad programs would reap benefits for advertisers. And how. Our click-through rates have registered in double-digits over the web standard. Now, we launch a monthly edition. Responsive across mobile phones, tablets, laptops and large displays, it meets today’s user patterns. What doesn’t change is our award-winning contributors illuminating in multimedia the breadth and depth of contemporary art, film, music, design and travel, where we live. What does change is a content strategy refined for a more streamlined delivery schedule. The AdobeAirstream Edition. Rich in design. Ripe in credible and authoritative content. Ahead of the pack to deliver visitors the knowledge they crave and advertisers an uncluttered, exclusive stage to showcase their message.
