WingSwept Launches New Web Site for Cary Magazine
RALEIGH (May 1, 2006) - Jay Strickland, president of WingSwept, a leading IT consulting company specializing in Web and database development, announced the launch of a new Web site for Cary Magazine.
"We are proud to partner with Cherokee Publishing and Cary Magazine to extend their brand into meaningful online channels," said Strickland. "People are seeking new and different vehicles that allow them to interact personally with a publication, and much of that is due to the ease and availability of the Internet."
The site, located at www.CaryMagazine.com, will serve as an online extension of Cary Magazine, the leading quality of life publication for Western Wake County. The enhanced Web site includes an editor's blog where readers can get an inside look at how the local magazine is produced. A special events photo gallery displays photos from community and civic events, and the "In the Current Issue" section previews some of the feature stories from the current issue of the magazine.
CaryMagazine.com visitors can sign up for Cary Magazine e-newsletters that spotlight area restaurants, promote community events through the CaryMagazine.com "Community Calendar" and provide an early peek at the next issue of Cary Magazine. Visitors also can use the site to start or renew their subscription to Cary Magazine and find the nearest retail location where Cary Magazine is sold.
"We are excited to introduce the new Cary Magazine Web site to readers," said Ron Smith, president of Cherokee Publishing. "Our goal is to continually reach new audiences, and CaryMagazine.com will complement each new issue with extra features that celebrate the essence of our community."
