Some of our competitors will be quite surprised: In just eight months, our new publishing house has achieved the tremendous success that one million unique clients read the news on exxpress.at! Editor Eva Schütz and editor-in-chief Richard Schmitt are delighted with this record result: “The November figures show particularly well how important it was to found a new newspaper on the web and also a TV station. A news platform that is constantly updated, that has a line, does not deliver the mainstream uniform fadesse and brings important investigative stories, is just successful. “
The numbers are really impressive: just 240 days after the start of the eXXpress, more than a million people were on the news platform in November (all data from Google Analytics), from April to November this is a doubling of the number of our unique clients.
Access and the number of shares on social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter are also constantly increasing: In November, the eXXpress had no less than 400,000 (!) Interactions (data via Storyclash) – so thousands of eXXpress are already sharing and commenting on them every day. Fans of our reports and columns on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Particularly important pillars for the success of our eXXpress are the excellent writing columnists: Christian Ortner, Ruth Pauli, Daniela Holzinger, Bernhard Heinzlmaier, Andreas Tögel, Bernhard Krumpel, Rudolf Öller and the deputy. eXXpress editor-in-chief Anna Dobler regularly commented on Austria’s politics and European decisions. Editor-in-chief Richard Schmitt: “No other Austrian news portal has this in this dimension. These columns, these critical analyzes, are very important to us. “
The high number of readers of the eXXpress also shows one thing: Austria’s old print products are now too slow, and some of them are also burdened with scandals. The web editions linked to this slowness cannot develop in such a way that they can hold their own against new competition that does not have to take into account a paper newspaper that may not appear until 12 hours later.
In addition, the new publishing house managed by Eva Schütz has recognized the importance of the constant cooperation between exxpress.at and its own TV broadcaster exxpressTV. Our exxpressTV (channel 170 Magenta / UPC) brings the latest news in the morning news show exxpresso every weekday from 7 a.m., then the latest news all day and in the evening the major news broadcasts the most important reports of the day – uncolored, without Educational TV without the arrogance of a license-financed state broadcaster.
Thank you for being one of our loyal eXXpress readers!
