Two of Kosciusko County’s premier journalism organizations have formed an alliance to serve their ever-growing reader base.
Executives from StaceyPageOnline.com and TigerSportsNation.com met last week to discuss the potential synergies of working together in the journalism field. Parties from both sides were quick to determine the strengths of each organization and how those strengths are empowering their base of readers to get the information they need when they want it.
“There is no doubt that StaceyPageOnline.com has captured the imagination of Kosciusko County,” states Brian Linky, managing director of TigerSportsNation.com. “With the overpowering usage of web traffic and the transition of that traffic to mobile devices, StaceyPageOnline.com is poised for continued growth. TigerSportsNation.com is proud to join forces with SPO.”
Growth is precisely what StaceyPageOnline.com has experienced. The analytics prove this in a big way. StaceyPageOnline.com Technology Director Scott Slusser explains, “StaceyPageOnline.com is realizing in excess of 1.67 million page views each month. Our unique visitor numbers are averaging growth of more than 141 percent monthly and overall visits are seeing increases of more than 134 percent each month. We want to continue this growth by giving our readers the content they desire in the time frame they feel is important. Our alliance with TigerSportsNation.com and PayProMedia will go a long way to ensure success in both content and delivery.”
TigerSportsNation.com already has its pulse on Warsaw sports and, with the added writing talents of StaceyPageOnline.com Sports Editor Scott Davidson, it will continue to provide Warsaw athletes and their families, friends and fans a place to celebrate their accomplishments.
Matt Hoskins, CEO of PayProMedia explains, “PayProMedia has served TigerSportsNation.com since its inception in late 2009. We built multiple platforms including web, mobile Internet and social media integration that displays amazing student athletes and their outstanding accomplishments. Our team of graphic designers, web developers and social media specialists understand and are beyond excited to be a part of the StaceyPageOnline.com and TigerSportsNation.com alliance. The future of journalism and the benefits within for Kosciusko County just took a giant step forward.”
Ron Baumgartner, publisher of The Papers Inc. and StaceyPageOnline.com, says, “We’re excited that TigerSportsNation.com chose to partner with us to provide quality Warsaw sports coverage to their already established readership. The joining of forces is certainly an exciting venture for both them and for StaceyPageOnline.com. Scott Davidson is highly respected in our sports communities and this additional outlet for sports coverage is only good news for all of Kosciusko County.”
Kip Schumm Director of Marketing for The Papers Incorporated and StaceyPageOnline.com says, “The alliance with TigerSportsNation.com will provide Tiger fans the most up to date sports coverage offered in Kosciusko County.”
Stacey Page adds, “StaceyPageOnline.com is not only the future of news, it’s alive and thriving right here in Kosciusko County. We’ve realized more growth and success in just 10 months than we ever thought possible. By joining forces with TigerSportsNation.com we see even more potential for the future.”
The partnership will mean more immediate results reporting of Warsaw sporting events for Facebook fans and Twitter followers of StaceyPageOnline.com and more in-depth coverage of Warsaw sports for TigerSportsNation.com readers.
