One of India’s most-read independent digital news media organizations, The News Minute has awarded its growth mandate to a mid-size digital marketing entity, AdClear. AdClear is based out of Delhi-NCR. The News Minute has over 13 million unique readers every month. The mandate was bagged after multiple rounds of discussion on growth strategy. AdClear will be handling performance marketing duties for The News Minute, to help it enhance its reach and scale up audience discovery.
Vignesh Vellore, CEO, The News Minute says “Good SEO is not about gaming the system, it’s a long-term strategy focusing on adhering to the rules and building a reputable news website for the users. Discoverability is an important factor and we wanted to ensure that this would be achieved without having to compromise on our content. We also did not want to become an internet factory and just produce stories for the sake of traffic. AdClear understood our needs and were able to create a path which would allow us to focus on what we do best – Good Journalism”
The News Minute has a sharp focus on south India and a progressive approach to news, it serves premium readers in all major Indian metros. The content includes news, ground reportage, news analysis, opinion and blogs.

Commenting on the win, Gurbir Singh, CEO, AdClear said “The News Minute has become immensely popular over the last few years and this is borne out by the huge audience base it has accumulated. Independent and un-biased journalism have made TNM what it is today. We are truly excited to partner with a media house which has huge potential for growth.
