I’d like to tell you a little about the ZENIT news agency.
We publish a daily news service in seven languages: Italian, Spanish, English, German, French, Portuguese and Arabic. Each edition covers roughly the same news, but each with its own perspective, since the journalists staffing the seven language editions are native speakers of the respective languages, and select and focus articles according to the interests and customs of their language groups.
With our seven editions, we publish between 80 and 130 articles a day, using four distinct platforms: the web page, social media, the email news service and the mobile app. All in real time.
Articles are published instantly on our web page, and a selection of those are released on Facebook and Twitter. Some days, our Facebook posts reach millions of people. For example, during the Pope’s visit to the Philippines, the English edition had some 11 million visits; the Spanish had 9 million, etc.
ZENIT aims for rapid service, bringing news to you as quickly as it happens. And we provide our news service practically every day of the year.
Every day, the email news bulletin is prepared and sent to our 520,000 subscribers. We send more than 15 million emails a month.
And subscribers pay nothing to receive the ZENIT news dispatch.
To finance our global team of 50 (32 journalists and translators), we ask a voluntary annual contribution. The average contribution is $50 — less than a dollar a week. Don’t you think ZENIT is worth a dollar a week?
