I hope everyone had a great season and enjoyed many of the wonderful things South Florida has to offer. Over the past few months, Guy Magazine and the Florida Agenda have transitioned our circulation to work towards becoming Fort
Lauderdale’s number one choice for our avid readers and loyal advertisers in 2012.
For our valued advertisers, we are now exclusively distributing our publications within a 50-mile radius in South Florida only. This represents over 90% of the customers that will frequent your businesses. The result of this dynamic strategy is that our advertisers will no longer need to pay a premium to any other publication for out- of- area circulation that has proven ineffective in bringing the anticipated business to your establishments.
Thanks to all of our advertising business partners who have embraced this proven strategy, we look forward to working with new clients, who will benefit substantially from this cost-effective way to grow your businesses. Additionally, you will maximize your marketing budgets, as we target ALL the LGBT spending power in the Fort Lauderdale and Miami marketplace.
My goal to grow Multimedia Platforms, LLC has come to fruition. This past week MMP entered into a joint venture partnership with publicly traded company Cybermesh International (stock symbol CYTL). I was also named new CEO of Cybermesh International and Chairman of the Board. MMP received 12 million shares of common stock in the transaction and I personally signed a three-year employment contract.
We are now positioned to begin the process of executing LGBT print and online business acquisitions to grow our media company throughout North America. Having access to the public markets for capital, and having stock to offer our future business partners, provides Publishers around the country with a valued exit strategy to reward them for their incredible commitment to LGBT publishing. To our loyal readers and viewers online, this also provides you an opportunity to own your own fair share of our company as a shareholder, so you can be a part of producing publications, online platforms, and mobile applications that are educating and entertaining our readers and viewers all over the world.
It is imperative that we report the news and support initiatives in our newspaper and future newspapers around the country that are important and relevant to the LGBT community today, and for future generations to come. It is also important that we continue to showcase the great people, places and things that entertain us all around the world through our Men’s Entertainment Magazines and future Magazines in newly acquired markets. Our online platforms have exploded in strength, as we now have over 7,000 fans on our Facebook page, and enjoy over 5,000 weekly page views on our entertainment website guymag.net. Our news site, FloridaAgenda.com , enjoys thousands of viewers, and offers a great online platform to stay up -to- the- minute with cutting-edge LGBT news stories, features, and insightful editorial discussions.
Last month, we relocated our offices to 2435 N. Dixie Highway, in Wilton Manors. This move was done strategically to merge with Sterling Accounting to manage all our accounting, bookkeeping and invoicing. Jeff Sterling has also become the CFO (Chief Financial Officer) for Cybermesh International, and will be named to the board of directors.
I want to thank all of our readers, online supporters, and our loyal advertising business partners for the past several years of incredible support. Without you, we could not serve the community in the ways that we do. The media can and does change lives. We take this responsibility very seriously, and we encourage you to join us as we strive towards being your voice and the voice of those who cannot be heard.
Hope all have a great summer.
