Subscription platform Evolok partners with The Indian Express, breaking new digital ground in South Asia
(23 August 2021) Pioneering software company Evolok today announces its partnership with IE Online Media Services, which runs and manages India’s leading news brands IndianExpress.com, FinancialExpress.com, Loksatta.com and Jansatta.com, elevating one of India’s biggest news outlets with its suite of next-level engagement and monetisation tools.
The collaboration will see analysts from Evolok join forces with editorial and commercial teams of Indian Express to maximise online content for the prestigious national title, which reaches millions of users a day with breaking news from India and around the world.
Evolok plans to use its innovative set of data-backed features – including subscription management, behavioural monitoring, and audience segmentation – to enhance user experience at a range of online touchpoints for the flagship publication.
The London-based platform will help The Indian Express establish a paywall, manage customer profiles, provide support for social registration, and create a single login feature for friction-free customer journeys – among other tech-led targets. These strategies will increase daily traffic and attract new advertisers to the website, in an ambitious move to ramp up engagement and unlock fresh digital revenue.
“We’re delighted to be collaborating with The Indian Express at this very exciting moment of growth,” says Nina Juss, co-founder of Evolok. “As a respected news website, Indian Express Online attracts millions of page views a month with its award-winning editorial coverage. We’ll use our personalised tech to expand this world-class archive of web content, amplifying its reach and earning potential.”
“Evolok became our partner of choice following a full analysis of subscription vendors available on the market,” adds Sanjay Sindhwani, CEO Digital at Indian Express Online. “We were impressed with the extensive tech features provided by Evolok, and their support throughout the project.”
The Indian Express newspaper was founded in 1932 and launched online in 1996. The newspaper reaches almost 100 Million unique visitors every month and is a preferred digital news destination for readers worldwide looking for unbiased and high quality journalism across politics, business, sports and many more verticals.
