(20/10/2009) Viipr Media has launched a new news wire service. The Viipr News Wire offers hot, breaking news stories to news sites, bloggers and any site that relies on breaking news content for traffic generation. All stories are optimized for the web, maximum visibility in search engines and sharing via social networking sites.
After working as lead writer for an online news site, Viipr Media founder, Paul Short, saw that the current state of the bigger news wire services was lacking in news stories written especially for online readers. Most of the content coming out of these companies is written with an offline, print media audience in mind. If you look at the current state of the big media industry, that old fashioned news doesn’t transition well to the the immediacy of the web. Paul then saw a wide open market that is long over due for a change.
Paul says “More and more people are looking to the internet for their news because it’s published there faster than any other form of media in history. Readers want their news now. They’re demanding it. It’s why big media who are set in their ways are a dying breed – they’re not adapting to the online news landscape as fast as their readers are and they’re sinking because of it. Someone needed to start syndicating news written for a web based audience. So the Viipr News Wire was born.”
The Viipr News Wire uses the real-time web to monitor breaking news events and collect information as those events are happening. Stories are written in a clear, concise format, optimized for search engines, online readers and social sharing. This content is then pushed out to clients immediately via email. Client’s then have their staff review the stories and publish to their sites.
The Viipr News Wire service is competitively priced, easy to understand and sign up for and gives client sites that edge of being one of the first on the web to post hot breaking news.
