We spoke with Vladimira for Journalift before the New Year holidays:

As part of the support of the Media for All project, the Independent Association of Journalists of Vojvodina developed the newsletter as a way of regular two-way communication with its community. The first edition of the newsletter was published in the second half of July, and over a hundred subscribers regularly opened this new product and read its contents.

In addition to the continuously high number of engaged visitors and visits to the VOICE website, there was a slight increase in the number of Facebook users - 6%, and Twitter - 7.5%, while new profiles were created on LinkedIn and Instagram.

As part of the support, VOICE has improved its website, and the community is continuously offered information packed in various formats that are easy to consume, such as short videos, editorial comments, infographics, etc.

In the coming period, VOICE plans to launch a premium edition of the newsletter for which content will be paid.
