The idea was to serve news that was hot, but also true. News that would make the highlights. News that required guts to write. It had to have news from all areas that could have news.
In today’s age, newspapers have lost their shine. And there are a lot of things to blame for this. Newspapers focusing on masala news and advertisements to earn money is one of them. But the most influencing factor is the internet. Like everything, you can get new from the internet in an instant. So why buy and read newspapers, when you can read them on the web for free?
So we decided to make a web portal that served news that was not only to-the –point, but also 100% true.
The idea was to serve news that was hot, but also true. News that would make the highlights. News that required guts to write. It had to have news from all areas that could have news. Be it politics or be it sports, it had to be there. One more important thing was to build something that could connect with all the users. For that, we decided to write the news in Hindi. It’s not just your household news portal. It’s a lot more than that. It serves news that other news portals fear to write. It serves the truth behind all the paid news that’s been present all over the media now-a- days. These are some of the most important things that prompted us to build The Awaz.
We decided to build this product in wordpress. The main reason for this was, we wanted it to be easily and highly customizable, and easy to manage all the content that we wanted people to see in it. And wordpress is the best option available for the easiest and most effective Content Management System on the web today. So our wordpress developers got to work to make something for the people to see the truth behind every news.
Designing the site with wordpress was fairly easy, taking into account the expertise of our wordpress experts. The real concern was how to manage all that data that we were going to post on the site every day. That’s where wordpress helped a lot. Our decision to user wordpress turned out to be right when we posted hundreds of news articles in the first week itself. All of them were properly managed by wordpress.
After designing the webpage and integrating it with the content management system, we had a final product that looked like it could change the world. Important news from all sectors of the world which was not shown correctly by other portals, or even not showed at all was all here on our portal. And credits to our wordpress developers for maintaining the news portal by posting news every day, even with their busy schedule.
The Awaz has been surprisingly popular since the day it was released, even without official promotions and advertisements. People are really liking the fact that they can finally read news that is un-biased and true. And that was our motive the whole time.
