As noted on Issuu.com, "Millions of avid readers come to Issuu every day to read free publications, created by enthusiastic publishers from all over the globe. Issuu's publishers include the biggest names in fashion, lifestyle, art, sports and global affairs.
Created by a bunch of geeks with a mad love for the publishing industry, Issuu has grown to become one of the biggest publishing networks on the planet." Founded in 2006, Issuu was selected as one of TIME's 50 Best Websites in 2009 and was a Webby Awards Honoree that same year and a 2008 South by Southwest finalist.
Some of Issuu's notable clients include global publisher of academic books, journals and online resources in humanities and social sciences, Routledge; the largest development bank in the world, World Bank Group; and Cambridge University Press, the publishing business of the University of Cambridge, the world's oldest publishing house, the second largest university press in the world and publisher of bibles and academic journals. Of the feature Editor in Chief, Stacey Bethel, remarks, "This is remarkable to say the least.
This is the best source of encouragement because our team works tirelessly every month to produce a stellar issue. It is a constant work in progress as we develop new content to stimulate and inform our readers. Also, this is something we can take to advertisers and say, 'hey, your brand will receive the maximum amount of visibility available when you advertise with us' and it won't be an exaggeration. You know the old adage, 'the proof is in the pudding.' This can be our proof." Art and Content Director, Mikelah Rose adds, "It is a proud moment when Caribbean content is organically featured on the homepage of a website of this caliber. This, I believe, attests to our visual appeal and loyal readership." Triple the Focus launched its publication on October 5, 2011 with features in the field of Music, Entertainment and Lifestyle.
With the initial goal of providing industry insiders with a platform that would connect them to their fans on a more personal level, the Magazine has grown exponentially to include fitness, travel, fashion and finance. With a reach that extends across the globe and includes countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and by large the Caribbean, to date, Triple the Focus has over 1,000,000 million page views not including other high traffic websites that hosts the link of the magazine on a monthly basis. In March 2013, Triple the Focus partnered with luxury lifestyle publication, UPTOWN Magazine to integrate more Caribbean content into their print and online publications.
This strategic partnership with Triple the Focus will strengthen UPTOWN's presence as a brand within the Caribbean market and enable them to better serve the Tourist Boards and Hoteliers who represent the core of their business in the region. Currently, UPTOWN's print publication has more than 1,000,000 readers per issue, Uptownmagazine.com has over 200,000 unique visitors per month and 2.2 million page views and 60,000 plus iPhone App downloads.
