Newzz is the latest entrant in the content aggregation space which is dominated by Dailyhunt, NewsDog and Flipboard. All three are huge players with deep pockets in this segment. It will be interesting to see how a single founder is able to gain users in this crowded, but lucrative content-aggregation space. Unlike others, there is no mobile app for the same. The website is mobile optimized. Users can simply save the link of the website on their home-screen or bookmark the page. This saves precious space on the mobile device.
What differentiates Newzz from the competition is its unique algorithm that groups similar headlines under a single topic. This gives users the flexibility to read more related news or simply skip the topic. Absence of advertisements or pop-ups or banner ads makes the website very fast to load. The website also does not request any sign-ups to view its content. It is completely FREE for everyone. Since the headlines are collected only from reliable online media, the possibility of fake news coming up on this website is negligible. Each piece of news published on this website is easily shareable through various social media channels.
When asked the founder – Ankit Shah (who is a successful businessman) how he intends to compete with these big players with his limited budget, he mentioned that “While a few large players exist with a lot of users, my objective is to turn profitable faster with fewer users. Currently my costs of operations are the lowest. Hence, the road to profitability will be shorter even if I have fewer users.”
In the future, Newzz intends to provide hyper-local content in 10+ Indian languages. It will not be a mere translation of the English site. The content provided will be relevant to each user based on the language chosen. Users will be able to receive latest news directly on their WhatsApp. The founder also wishes to have a long term content distribution partnership with content providers.
