2oceansvibe is becoming a very well known and respected brand and form of media, particularly in Cape Town. Seth is regularly quoted in the press, as well as radio. Mentions includeCape Times, Sunday Times, Radio 5 and KFM.
The Cape Town following is extremely loyal and growing at a rapid pace. The bulk of the audience are the 18-30 year old market. The website is obviously appealing to an aspiring audience. It is definitely the new wave of advertising and something that marketers and advertisers need to get involved in. The type of humour and ‘journalism’ shown on the site is for a more sophisticated audience. You’re dealing with intelligent, brand loyal people with a sizeable chunk of disposable income.
The websites and the concept is VERY new and HIGHLY targeted. Unlike being bombarded with ads on TV when they don’t want it – these readers are choosing to go to this ‘lifestyle’ site and they believe in Seth and the brand’s that he is willing to advertise on his website. I have had to reject potential advertisers as they don’t suit the lifestyle. We can’t afford for the readers to think Seth Rotherham has let them down – this is why we don’t let them down. It has been a very long and careful task to build up the credibility we currently have.
The readership of the website is also highly influential including public figures, celebrities and leaders of industry.
