What is Ramify?

Ramify.biz, which launched in 2016, connects marketers to agencies, and agencies to service providers and suppliers.

What is the company news room service?

A company news room allows you to promote current accounts wins, campaign launches, promotions and other company news in your profile. Headlines are featured on the front page of MarkLives.com, the MarkLives email newsletter sent every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, the @MarkLives and @Ramifybiz Twitter accounts and Ramify.biz Facebook page —putting your news headlines in front of an niche audience of marketing and advertising personnel across South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world. This option is only available to paid-for Premium profiles.

What do I get for going Premium

Your free Ramify.biz profile is upgraded with access to premium features, including:

  • Boosted search visibility (think Google — RELEVANT paid-for profiles appear first in alphabetical order, followed by non-paid-for search results).
  • The ability to add a showcase portfolio, saving potential clients time in finding and accessing your portfolio of work.
  • A company news room for highlighting your current accounts wins, promotions, campaign launches and other company news.
  • Exposure through the publication of and links to your news room content via marklives.com (40 000 unique visitors a month), MarkLives newsletter (3 480+ subscribers), Facebook (Ramify: 2 493 page likes) and Twitter (@MarkLives: 13 100 followers and @Ramifybiz: 884 followers).

The cost - Pay what you can

Communication is key in a time of crisis. We believe that clients cannot afford to end commercial communication just because cash flow is tight. We are trying to remove this as a barrier to creating narrative and movement around your business and around our industry.

In short, Ramify.biz, our commercial arm that allows agencies and their suppliers to access our audience, will be opened to all agencies and agency suppliers without a set minimum price in place. Renewals will function on the same basis. We ask clients who can afford to renew at out commercial rate of R13 690 (incl VAT) per annum to do so as it will help fund our journalistic mission. But if you cannot, you can pay what you can.

As of today our press office offering switches from a fixed annual fee to a Pay what you can service. It will count for both new press offices as well as press offices up for renewal. Our intent is to keep this policy in place for the duration of the State of Disaster declared by President Rhamaposa last week.

We believe in the value offered by our industry, also in a time of crisis, of contributing to the wheels of commerce and enterprise. And continue to turn they must. Marketing, media and communication are all critical aspects in ensuring commercial operations, and the jobs they help create and maintain endure. At the same time we believe, as we always have, in the importance of an independent, journalism driven trade media, and we will have to find a way to fund this into the future. We have purpose and intent.

The once-off fee per annum is R13 685 (incl VAT). Yes, we would still like agencies and agency suppliers who can afford to, to pay our full annual subscription fee of R13 658 (incl VAT.) But if you cannot in this time of crisis, we understand. You only need to pay what you can.
