How Government Executive Plans To Double Revenue in Five Years

first_imgA website redesign follows in January. While he wouldn’t reveal hard numbers, Goldstone says that digital accounts for 65 percent of GE’s overall revenue. A $4 Million Business Intelligence GroupBeyond the magazine and website, the core for Government Executive Media is the Government Business Council, a research intelligence division that launched in 2007 to offer case studies to top GE advertisers. Today, services include research, content marketing, data, lead generation and events. “We can go to a company that wants proprietary research on a select topic–say cyber security–and create a research engine that funnels into custom content which can be used to create custom events,” says Goldstone. “Sponsors get assets from research and custom events which extend into webinars and white papers and other content marketing services. Everyone wants data and insider information to sell into that market.” Revenue for Government Business Council has grown more than 400 percent to almost $4 million, with the research business accounting for more than $1 million alone. “It’s also brought an additional $2 million to $3 million in media payments,” says Goldstone. “We wouldn’t have those media payments without the research and data delivery upfront.”While marketing services are all the rage for b-to-b publishers now, Goldstone says publishers need to understand what’s core to their business in terms of being scalable. “You can throw a million ideas at something like marketing services but there things that are core (research, content marketing) to GE and things where we aren’t the best in class provider. We do business with a lot of technology companies but we won’t build websites for them. What we can do is help with content they put on those sites that’s aligned with their efforts at the government market. You need to focus on your core, rather than getting distracted chasing the ‘next best idea’ which could be nickels and dimes rather than real dollars.” More on this topic How Three Publishers Are Retooling for Growth Peter Goldstone Named President of Government Executive Media Group The Hanley Wood Bench Peter Goldstone Returns to Hanley Wood As CEO Hanley Wood Begins Turning the Battleship Around Atlantic Media’s Government Executive Revamps Digital Strategy, WebsiteJust In BabyCenter Sold to Ziff Davis Parent J2 Media | News & Notes Meredith Corp.

Terminates Editor-in-Chief for Ethics BreachPowered by Atlantic Media has invested heavily in remaking its flagship brand The Atlantic, as well as National Journal, and so far, has been rewarded on both fronts. Now the company is turning to its b-to-b division, Government Executive Media, with a plan to double revenue in less than five years. Shortly after joining Government Executive in February, CEO Peter Goldstone sat down with Jerry Shair’s Boiling Point ideation company to map out a plan. “We see five to seven opportunities around digital media, education (business learning), print, events, data, research and analytics,” says Goldstone. “Some platforms we already have, others we will be developing. We can take our horizontal play and go into other niches, or build out a vertical by audience or topic.” That includes an overhauled media platform. “This is about developing a whole new launch platform for Government Executive,” says Goldstone. “They had already gone through a digital transformation-the editor-in-chief and group publisher both came from the digital side-but the platform wasn’t positioned for growth, it was positioned for the migration of dollars from print to digital.” The first step is investing in (to the tune of six figures) and redesigning Government Executive (conducted by celebrated design firm Pentagram, which also handled redesigns for The Atlantic and National Journal). “Even though we have an incredible Web platform, the audience demographic is really 40 and 50-year-old people in high levels of government,” says Goldstone. “They still rely heavily on the magazine, which we felt was a bit neglected.” last_img read more

Ford EcoSport Bookings Cross 14000 in 2 Weeks Report

first_imgFord’s newly launched EcoSport SUV has reportedly received more than 14,000 bookings in less than two weeks.The Financial Express, citing a source close to the development of EcoSport, said the American auto major has received more than 14,000 orders for EcoSport in India, and this number is likely to cross 17,000 by this Friday.”By last Friday, bookings for the EcoSport had touched 14,000. By now, this would have crossed 17,000. A new count will be taken by Friday,” a source told to the Financial Express.The report also stated that due to higher demand for the diesel version of EcoSport, some dealers across the country have also stopped taking orders. The greater demand for the vehicle in the sub-continent will push the company to extend the waiting period for customers.The vehicle which was launched in the country on 26 June is expected to be a game-changer for Ford in the auto market. By pricing it low, Ford is directly posed a challenge to current auto market leaders like Maruti and Hyundai along with Renault Duster, Mahindra Quanto and Premier Rio. The car comes with a starting price of ₹5.59 lakh.Under the hood, EcoSport comes with 1.5L petrol, 1.5L diesel and the 1.0L EcoBoost engine. The 1.5L petrol engine is expected to give 112 PS power and 140 Nm torque. It comes in both manual and automatic transmissions. The manual transmission model gives a mileage of 15.8 kmpl, while the automatic model is expects to deliver 15.6 kmpl. The revolutionary EcoBoost EcoSport engine churns out a power of 125 PS and 170 Nm torque along with a mileage of 18.9 kmpl. The diesel variant of EcoSport is the most fuel-efficient among all models and is expected to give a mileage of 22.7 kmpl.”We have had an overwhelming response and are now consolidating the order list. This is quite high and unprecedented for us at Ford,” said Vinay Piparsania, executive director for marketing, sales and service, Ford India.Meanwhile, Ford India is recalling its EcoSport diesel models in India due to the problems with the glow plug module. The recall of newly launched vehicle is likely to hurt the sentiments of prospective buyers in the country.last_img read more

Chinese yuan to become international currency by 2020 Central Bank Governor

first_imgChina will deliver a slew of economic and financial reforms over the next five years, which will help the yuan become an international currency by 2020, central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan said in an article.The reforms will also include improving central bank communications and guiding market expectations to enhance monetary policy, Zhou wrote in the Caixin article published on the magazine’s website.Zhou said the government will strengthen supervision of its financial system to prevent “systemic risk”, explaining China’s proposed 13th Five-Year economic plan for the years 2016 to 2020.The comments around policy priorities come amid growing doubts in global markets about China’s commitment to see through comprehensive financial reforms.Those doubts were sparked after Beijing intervened in the stock markets during a share price rout that started in June and saw the main Shanghai Composite Index plunge as much as 40 percent.Beijing has also intervened in its currency market after an abrupt devaluation by the central bank in August caused widespread worries over the yuan’s future value.Zhou said China will foster new mechanisms to promote financial liberalisation and development, as well as “enhance the efficiency of the financial system to serve the real economy.””It will effectively use and develop financial risk control tools, and reduce levels of leverage so as to prevent systemic risk,” he said.Zhou pledged to improve central bank communications on policy intentions, but didn’t offer details on whether policy makers will provide routine briefings to accompany rate announcements similar to other developed economies.last_img read more

Happy New Year 2017 Will Sensex Nifty respond positively to PM Modis

first_imgAt the Bombay Stock Exchange (representational image)Reuters fileHappy new year investors! One hopes that Dalal Street extends the gains of the last trading day of calendar year 2016 onto the first trading day of 2017. The BSE Sensex gained 260 points on Friday (December 30) to end at 26,626 while the NSE Nifty ended 82 points higher at 8,186.Bank, real estate, NBFC and home loan stocks are expected to be in focus after PM Narendra Modi’s speech on December 31, 2016 that spoke about dedicated 8 percent interest scheme for pensioners, interest subvention to home loan borrowers in specific categories and relief to small enterprises.SBI, ICICI Bank, PNB, Indiabulls Housing Finance, LIC Housing Finance, DHFL, Axis Bank, Prestige Estates Projects, Godrej Properties and related stocks could see significant movement.Stock markets ended 2016 on a positive note, despite many negative triggers, more so at the last two months, the most significant being the decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes that sent the markets into a tizzy amid projections of a prolonged slowdown.The two benchmark indices are likely to trade in a narrow range in 2017, according to an analyst. “Overall looking at the picture, we believe the market to take time to beat its 2016 Nifty high and remain trading in the broader range of 7000 to 8500 for calendar year 2017,” Abnish Kumar Sudhanshu, Director & Research Head, Amrapali Aadya Trading & Investments, said in a note.What to look for in January 2017The triggers in the first week will be December 2016 car and two-wheeler sales data, followed by merchandise trade, inflation and civil aviation statistics for December.Analysts expect companies to report low volume growth and decline in some cases. Two-wheeler makers are likely to take the maximum hit, say brokerages Nirmal Bang, Motilal Oswal Securities and Nomura.Companies will also be declaring their demonetisation-impacted quarterly results, beginning with Infosys on January 13, 2017. Wipro will be announcing its December quarter results on January 25. Demonetisation is unlikely to have impacted IT software services exporters.Among lenders, Axis Bank will be announcing results on January 19, RBL Bank on January 20, HDFC Bank on January 24, followed by IDFC Bank the next day.Cues could emerge from statements/speeches by the top brass of the ruling party, the BJP. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be addressing a rally in Lucknow on January 2 while tax collection figures for the 9-month period ended December would also be out.Of course, the mother of all triggers will be Budget 2017 likely to be presented on February 1.last_img read more
