How to Get Connected to Our Future Readers
Mobile: a cashless wallet
Denmark's Ekstra Bladet created "Redaktionen", an internet-based editorial platform where schools produce their own newspaper. Today most schools produce newspapers in class — using a variety of software. With this revolutionizing platform from Ekstra Bladet, the students learning process is supported and helps students follow a professional process and produce professional results. The students layout their newspapers online and experience increasing pressure as deadline draws near. 2–3 days after deadline Ekstra Bladet delivers 1000 colour prints of the paper — directly at the school. This award-winning campaign has built intense loyalty with young people.
