A NEW HORIZON

News isn't bound to the medium.

Follow the Money is an investigative journalism platform, and a responsive website facilitates reading on every device.

Duration

Readers spend more time on the website, reading more articles and clicking through more pages. Besides well written articles this is caused by a design which facilitates a good reading experience.

Visitors

A new publishing platform enables Follow the Money to give breaking articles the attention they deserve. And we've seen the result in the huge increase in visitor numbers!

Bounces

Visitors who enter the website and leave quickly thereafter are called bounces. The new article design pulls visitors in the articles by using large images and headers, which greatly reduced the bounces.

Pageload

Optimisation of file size and smart use of caching systems resulted in a far more responsive website in terms of page speed load. This is directly related to more page views and less bounces.

IMPROVEMENTS

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Follow the Money author's and columnists are given a prominent and recognizable style. This gives the website a uniform look, and still keeps the personal feeling to the columns. 
And as a bonus, the readers can easily spot their favorite writers.

TAGS

The Content Management System easily links articles together by using tags. Comes in handy for writers and readers to see recommended articles.

FILES

Articles can be bundled into files (dossiers), which gives visitors context and creates a story of successive developments.

TEXT SIZE

Readers can control their preferred reading experience by changing the article font size.

SHARING

Reach a larger audience by integrated sharing functions for social networks within the articles.

EASE OF USE

INTEGRATED FUNCTIONALITIES

A clean design presents visitors the essential functions at a glance. The article title and image suck readers into the article, whereas the author and article tags provide meaningful context. Social sharing is encouraged by presenting the total shares of the current article.

The Whole is Greater than the Sum of the Parts

Ultimately Follow the Money has a news platform which has all the tools to produce, publish, curate and discuss about investigative journalism.

By providing journalists with up-to-date tools and giving the readers an optimal experience, we've created a platform to be used for the coming years.
