The site features our new, modernized PRWeek logo, a contemporary design and navigation refresh, and a much better user experience. It will route you through to the content you want to see quickly and easily, and it is responsively designed to better serve content to your cell phone or tablet computer.
The site is still gated and only subscribers will have access to our full range of news, opinion, case studies, special reports, premium surveys, and longer-form content, as well as the Breakfast Briefing and Weekly Online Edition. But there is a new metered system that allows unregistered users to access one article a month, and registered users to sample two articles per month.
This will hopefully relieve frustration about social sharing I know some of you encounter with a gated site, without minimizing the value subscribers get for their money. Corporate access subscribers will now be on a domain-based system for logging in, which no longer relies on a shared login and password.
All users registered under an email with their company domain will automatically be recognized as part of their corporate access package once logged in, removing any problems with people forgetting their passwords.
The launch comes at a very exciting time for us, as we look forward to the launch of our PRWeek Asia website in the coming weeks, and the debut of our fully integrated global PRWeek Website in May, just in time for our inaugural global congress and awards in Barcelona on May 15-16.
Once May comes around, every user simply types www.prweek.com into their browsers to access the most extensive and thorough global coverage of the PR and communications sectors available, brought to you by our 25-strong team of quality journalists from around the world.
Anyone outside our core regions of the US, UK, and Asia can choose which lens they want to have on the world. In time, we will look to extend our offer to other regions, such as Latin America, India, and South Africa.
We have responded to feedback from our most recent reader survey and formal and informal conversations with many hundreds of you to produce the best possible online offering for our loyal subscribers.
But this is just the start. Our newly integrated global offering and increased cooperation between our teams from around the world will evolve quickly in the coming months to provide you with an even better PRWeek user experience.
I hope you like what we have done – please let us know what you think of the new website and how you would like us to move our offer forward over the next year.
