DB Corp Limited announced the launch of its latest edition of Dainik Divya Marathi from Akola in Maharashtra. With this launch, the Marathi daily has expanded its presence into 6 cities in Maharashtra with 6 editions in the region and 65 editions across India for the Dainik Bhaskar group.
Commenting on the launch, Sudhir Agarwal, Managing Director, DB Corp Limited, “Divya Marathi newspaper Akola edition launch has extended our footprint even further across Maharashtra, this being our 6th edition in the state. Akola is a developing city and one of the major cities of Vidarbha region. The city is taking rapid strides in the IT sector and also has a rich cultural heritage. Evidently, Akola brings with it a new proposition and reach to advertisers and we aim to fortify our presence here to emerge as the most preferred media for corporates while also strongly connecting with readers in this region.”
As has been done by the group for the launch of its previous editions and newspapers, a survey was conducted to introduce the Divya Marathi brand to readers for the first time, connect with them, ascertain their individual preferences to ultimately develop news daily that will address their unique issues and highlight aspects that will contribute to Akola’s socio economic development.
A brand campaign supported the launch and announced the progress of the survey at every stage – “Tumchi Marji Janoon Ghyayla Yetoye” (We are coming to know your opinion/wishes!) and “Na Ravanchi, Na Sahebanchi, Aata Chalel Tumchi Marji” (Neither of influential class, nor of politicians, now only public opinion will make a difference!)
