Premium service launched; Changes on VCCircle.com

14 May, 2012

Dear readers,

As we announced earlier, VCCircle has launched its premium service from May 14. Now, all exclusive articles, analyses, commentary and views, and archives beyond seven days, will be part of the premium service, and you need to be a premium account subscriber to access those. We have distinguished our premium content with a lock image on the right, top, of the article headline, which means you need to subscribe to access the article. 

There are a few changes on the new VCCircle.com website. This is to make sure you can discover content quickly and helps us present stories according to industry sectors, news events and categories, and also expand our coverage of Indian businesses.

If you want to subscribe to our premium account right away, click here. You can choose to subscribe and make payment online, which gives you instant access to the premium sections, or offline (via DD/Cheque/Wire/Cash deposit). If you want more details on subscription (including bulk licences), please write to Mohit Malik at subscription@vccircle.com

Subscription to our daily newsletter will remain free; however, you need to be a premium account subscriber to access the premium articles linked in the newsletter. Our sister site Techcircle.in, which tracks technology news and startup activity, will also remain free. 

We also have new Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, and we assume you have accepted these as you continue to read this website. 

How to navigate new VCCircle.com

There are a few changes on the new VCCircle.com website. This is to make sure you can discover content quickly and helps us present stories according to industry sectors, news events and categories, and also expand our coverage of Indian businesses. 

The top menu bar has changed. Under the Deals tab, you can access stories related to M&A, Private Equity, Venture Capital and Public Equity. So we continue to showcase upfront your staple diet of deal news. 

The major new addition on the menu bar is Sectors. Under this section, we have introduced coverage of six sectors: Consumer, Infrastructure, Healthcare, Manufacturing, TMT and Finance. Each of these sectors has sub-sectors, which will make your content discovery easier. Here, we will not only track the deal news, but also expand our coverage into corporate and strategy developments in companies belonging to these sectors. The sort of news (or views), which a business leader and a dealmaker would want to read on companies and sectors. 

Next on the menu are Columns (By Invitation) and Interviews (In Conversation), which have undergone only minor design changes while the treatment remains the same. 

Next, we have introduced VCCTV, our video content section, on the top menu bar. This helps you find our latest video interviews and shows easily. 

Below the top menu bar, we continue to showcase the day’s most important stories under Top Headlines (left) and Other Headlines (right, below the lead picture story). But the major addition here is More Headlines (link under Other Headlines), which helps you find stories of the last seven days – date wise. This has been a long-standing demand of our readers as it helps them find articles according to date. 

Come a little down on the home page and you can see two videos being showcased as against one video earlier. This is a sign of our plans to expand our multimedia coverage of businesses. If you click on See All Videos, you will be taken to our video page (newly added) where the videos are stored under various categories. 

We have also integrated Blogs into the main website while it was a separate website earlier. The good news is even the blog comments will appear on the homepage (Recent Comments on the right side bar)  

Another major change is the restructuring of all the category boxes on the home page. We have introduced the six new sectors here, which are, once again, giving you a snapshot of the top four headlines in each sector. You can directly go to each sector home page from here. 

And most importantly, links to our Twitter and Facebook accounts have been brought on to the homepage, so that you can track the discussions on these social media sites, or join/follow us easily. 

The rest of the home page is pretty self-explanatory. We have the Subscribe and Login buttons on the right, top, of the page as quick links. There is also a SUBSCRIBE TO PREMIUM ACCOUNT button on the top of the right side bar, which you cannot miss. The links to our sister websites (VCCEdge, Techcircle.in, Events and Training) are also provided on the left, top end, of the website. 

If you spot bugs and broken links, or just want to drop in your feedback on the new VCCircle.com, feel free to write to us at care@vccircle.com

Or you can leave a comment on our Twitter handle @vccircle or on our Facebook page or simply give us a call on 0120-4171111. 

Hope you continue to enjoy reading VCCircle.com! 

Sincerely,

Sahad P.V.
