Our platforms create, develop and maintain loyal relationships with our millions of engaged users. We’re creating world-class competencies, and a technology infrastructure which is opening up new services for our consumers.

Digital Content

Our mobile-first, free web content is accessed by over 38 million unique users every month. Our technology infrastructure means that we have the ability to create digital content once and deploy it seamlessly across different platforms. And our digital editions – created with our own proprietary software – are among the most popular in the UK.

Data Management

Data and Analytics sit at the heart of our strategy. Our marketing database provides a single customer view of millions of consumers, including lifestyle and demographic variables. We use it to deliver cutting edge data insight and analysis, as well as a data planning tool to deliver multi-channel CRM.

eCommerce

Our deep understanding of our customers and their life stages means we can work with selected partners to offer tailored products ideally suited to their passions. From travel and finance through Radio Times to hand-picked products for discerning gardeners, we’re deepening the relationship and driving fast-growing revenues.

Events

Our live events portfolio, Immediate Live, is the UK’s leading organiser of unmissable consumer events. We create premium, passion-led events and experiences that connect and inspire audiences as they come together to share, learn and participate in their interests.

Our specialist content creators, producers and commercial teams are as passionate about their subjects as our audiences – working together to create live experiences and online content in art and design, textiles and craft, cycling, dance, food, gardening and travel for communities throughout the UK and across the world.
