  • The Liberal - a new Irish news site | Digital Times
    to say something that might be considered mildly controversial or even different I think that s really contributed to the decline of the public s interest in some regard there s a sense that if you know what certain commentators are going to say there s really no need to read their article or buy their publication The Liberal isn t like that We re not afraid to post opinions that will generate real debate and the public respect us for it I ve always felt that the Irish public are extremely intelligent but they re often not credited with that intelligence by the rest of the media They have a whole range of opinions on every subject under the sun and The Liberal gives them a place to really get involved listen to some new thoughts on old subjects and then make up their own mind on how they feel Who are the people behind The Liberal Right from the beginning we ve had no problem getting people involved with The Liberal There s been huge interest and we re literally inundated with people who want to write for us I m more inclined to let things develop organically at the moment because that suits the nature of the site It s something which has really grown out of a public interest for a different way of doing things So we welcome contributions from writers who have something to say At the same time we have a number of reporters who keep us up to the minute with current news stories from Ireland and around the world Do you accept contributions from other writers and if so what topics would be of interest We welcome contributions from writers particularly opinion pieces The Liberal has rapidly become acknowledged as the go to publication for alternative views We offer our readers something that wasn t on the table before a different angle a different vision and interesting opinions with compelling arguments What type of advertisers will be interested in the site Once the site started to grow so too came advertising enquiries We work very closely with our advertisers offering them tailor made packages that suit their needs as well as complementing our website We are launching in the next month a new part of the website called TheLiberal ie Business Directory advertisers will have the opportunity to directly target customers in their immediate vicinity and enjoy the benefits of a national profile What is the site s business model The site is quite unique in the sense that we revolutionised the growing stage of a website We strategically used social media to quickly grow our readership and thus became a nationally known entity within 6 months Our Facebook page currently stands at 180 000 and rising weekly We paved our own way rather than follow suit So far so good A combination of things has helped us get to where we are Our team our articles and our strategy have
