Now that’s a big data they are talking about. He further adds, “Approximately 86% readers use smartphones and hand held devices to access the portal.” Currently they are working on beta phase of their mobile app which will be open for all very soon.
However, when asked about the financials, the future ambition and vision, they said. “The startup has been bootstrapping since its incorporation. The portal currently runs through self-generated revenues via Ads, affiliates and IT consultancy. Our aim and vision stays intact to offer an emotional and yet practical support to our readers. Our vision is to spread as much of love and cut noise in the visitor’s daily lives with quality rich text contents, images and videos. However, now we are looking forward for expansions and the first level of funding. With such level of interactions on portal, the idea is to upscale it to new levels. And we don’t stop here, we have another portal namely Fantoosy.com almost a year old, News and Media online portal with focus on engaging Indian geographic youth and PostDekho.com focused for Hindi readers.. All we can add is that they are really doing excellent”.
