“…we are very, very honored and proud to be able to promote tourism, lifestyle and commerce to such a wonderful country, people, barangay and their welcoming neighborhoods…to their neighbors and to the world.” -stated KA&CO US Executive Publisher, Kareem Antonio-Jackson in an interview in Los Angeles, California last week (via Skype).
The idea is to engage targeted local and international consumers on a barangay level: to promote Philippine tourism, as well as long-term PH-lifestyle, local PH brands and services, PH-domestic travel and tourism, PH-opportunities and give people –for the first time- the ability to make Philippines-lifestyle choices on a barangay by barangay (or neighborhood by neighborhood) basis.
The magazines, websites and social media pages will showcase barangay schools, medical facilities, real estate, grocery stores, vendors, exclusive on-line and in-magazine special promotions and discounts, shops, restaurants, basketball courts, nearest barangay hall locations, law offices, sports teams, philanthropy projects, even parks and barangay social activities.
All targeted at growing local inner-barangay patronage, while also attracting new businesses, consumers and residents to the barangay neighborhood. The Captain, Banjo Pilar is showcased in a “Visitor’s Welcome Letter” 2-page spread where he will invite and welcome readers to his lovely barangay and give key numbers, events and information.
All eyes are on Pasong Tamo, QC as the co-pioneers, with the US publishers of this exciting new small business entrepreneur, barangay neighborhood, grass-roots promotional campaign and showcase. When successful, the campaign will rollout throughout the Philippines, ramping up to the 2016 Presidential Elections and beyond.
For the first time in recent PH history, US media, marketers, publishers and developers will endorse and aide them in directly promoting their barangays, neighborhoods, businesses, professionals and their political candidates to -not only- locals, but also, to voting-Balikbayans, OFW’s and FilAM’s across the world.
KA&CO, the publishing group who owns the PH MAG brand, is an independent marketing group which funds the magazine and its website privately: largely by Friends of the Philippines; sponsors and advertisers which allows them to distribute the magazine for free, as well as to remain unbiased when developing content such as their List, endorsements, investment insights and partners.
