A Fo­cus on Qual­ity Dig­i­tal Jour­nal­ism

Forbes - - Sidelines -

At Forbes, rather than one-size-fits-all, we be­lieve in tai­lor­ing our jour­nal­ism to each ed­i­to­rial plat­form. This print mag­a­zine fea­tures deep-dive re­port­ing, care­ful writ­ing, edit­ing and fact-check­ing, and highly pro­duced pho­tog­ra­phy and de­sign; live events em­pha­size in­spi­ra­tion and net­work­ing; news­let­ters fo­cus on di­rect­ing ac­tion.

Forbes.com drives our largest au­di­ence (al­most 70 mil­lion monthly unique users, ac­cord­ing to Coms­core), the lion’s share of our rev­enue and the ma­jor­ity of our jour­nal­ism, with some 250 ar­ti­cles pub­lished on an av­er­age day, cov­er­ing the full gamut of en­tre­pre­neur­ial cap­i­tal­ism. For the past six months we’ve fo­cused on re­design­ing and rearchi­tect­ing the site to cre­ate a pre­mium dig­i­tal ex­pe­ri­ence that’s true to the Forbes mis­sion and voice. You’ll now find:

• Daily Cover Sto­ries, which de­liver the in-depth sto­ry­telling that gen­er­a­tions have ex­pected from the print mag­a­zine, lever­ag­ing our en­tire dig­i­tal tool­box, from data vi­su­al­iza­tion to video to cus­tom­ized, im­mer­sive lay­outs.

• A cleaner, more el­e­gant ar­ti­cle de­sign that puts our jour­nal­ism at the cen­ter and an in­tu­itive tax­on­omy that al­lows peo­ple to find it more eas­ily (the sto­ries load faster too!).

• An Ai-pow­ered pub­lish­ing plat­form that em­pow­ers our jour­nal­ists to craft bet­ter head­lines, choose the best pho­to­graphs and find top­ics read­ers are ask­ing about. “It’s a bionic suit for a writer,” says Salah Zala­timo, who over­sees Forbes’ prod­uct and tech team.

It was the ul­ti­mate col­lab­o­ra­tion, with more than 60 Forbes staffers rolling up their sleeves (some key lead­ers are pic­tured above). Spe­cial call-outs go to Dan Re­vitte, who over­saw look and feel and Forbes vet­eran Nina Gould, who deftly man­aged the process. “It was a Her­culean ef­fort by a smart, en­gaged group of peo­ple,” says Gould. And it’s on­go­ing. Great prod­ucts per­pet­u­ally it­er­ate. The ben­e­fi­ciary, we hope, is you.
