Trapit’s technology helps publishers engage their audiences by delivering the most relevant content for each reader from the publisher’s network of publications, as well as topically relevant content from around the web.

Trapit today announced the launch of the Trapit Publisher Suite. Built on Trapit’s intelligent, personalized discovery engine, the application enables publishers and brands to create experiences carefully tailored to individual readers. Launching with Here Media’s “Advocate Discovery” application, Trapit’s technology helps publishers engage their audiences by delivering the most relevant content for each reader from the publisher’s network of publications, as well as topically relevant content from around the web.

The Trapit Publisher Suite is a turnkey solution, providing white label iOS and web applications that can be fully branded and controlled by the publisher. The application offers access to Trapit’s extensive pool of over 100,000 professionally curated sources, empowering publishers to augment their own content and, through Trapit’s unique technology, combine the best of the web around the topics their readers truly care about. The Publisher Suite is also packaged with tools that automate and optimize content distribution and sharing across a number of different platforms, including apps, email, social and the web. Powerful analytics are provided to make sense of audience engagement and common behaviors, allowing publishers’ insight to effect content strategy.

“For years, publishers and brands have been developing innovative new ways to deliver content to their audiences, but the economics of digital, particularly on the iPad, have introduced new challenges, new competitors, and new opportunities. The Trapit Publisher Suite is one of these opportunities, leveling the playing field for publishers facing these challenges,” said Gary Griffiths, CEO and co-founder of Trapit. “Our Publisher Suite, the first of its kind, puts our advanced personalization and discovery technology in the hands of every publisher on the planet, allowing them to automatically create engaging new experiences for each individual reader.”

Here Media has successfully piloted Trapit’s Publisher Suite through the company’s “Advocate Discovery” application, allowing them to optimize relevant content across multiple publications. This not only creates synergy amongst Here Media’s publications, but also delivers highly relevant and quality content from other sources, making them an invaluable source for information for their audience, and increasing repeat visits.

“All publishers, digital or otherwise, know how important it is to keep their audience engaged,” said Paul Colichman, CEO of Here Media. “Trapit’s Publisher Suite provides some of the most advanced technology we’ve seen, allowing our audience to engage within a highly personalized experience. We’re very excited about what we’ve built with Trapit’s Publisher Suite, and are anxious to see the impact on our readers.”

Trapit’s Publisher Suite is also available to brands that have significant publishing operations, or other content marketing goals that require powerful but intuitive publishing tools that are easily deployed.
