In 2014, ”eKapija” signed a statement of compliance with the Good Business Practice Codex of the Association of Online Publishers of Serbia (SOIS). The Codex aims to prescribe the rules of the best practice in digital publishing in order for all digital publishers operating in the territory of the Republic of Serbia to mutually regulate and adhere to the rules of a fair, ethical and good professional practice in creating and publishing content, products and services they offer through their digital media.
How do our articles position in internet search engines?
We are proud to have a high number of ”hits” on search engines and that our documents rank highly within the search.
We especially emphasize that the success tied with the number of hits and positioning on search engines is that much more significant considering that around 40% of documents on eKapija are of the closed type, i.e. available to subscribers only and thereby inaccessible by Google and other search engines.
Who are eKapija portal users?
The user list is one of eKapija’s greatest assets, as well as the fact that there are more than 70% of the individual users of the system – high management of companies, i.e. decision makers and those who cannot be reached so easily through other media. Our subscribers are nearly all banks, insurance companies, brokerage houses, construction organizations, all foreign business clubs, embassies, foreign and local investment funds, but also numerous small and medium enterprises.
Strategic cooperation with national business clubs, such as the German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce (AHK Serbia) and the Slovenian Business Club (SPK), has been established, and the founders of eKapija are also founders of the Serbian Association of Managers (SAM). As a socially responsible company, eKapija is a member of the United Nations Global Compact in Serbia, implementing the ten universal principles in its operations.
In 2012, eKapija established cooperation with Coface Serbia, a risk management service organization, enabling the portal’s users to view the credit rating (according to the Coface methodology) of their potential clients.
The eKapija portal is also a participant in and a promo partner of all important events: Belgrade Fair, Belexpocentar, Novi Sad Fair, Sumadija Fair and the Adriatic Fair. We provide media support, coverage and promotion of numerous business, cultural and sports events in Serbia and B&H.
eKapija strategic projects
Aurea – The Aurea Award is primarily an honest attempt from us as a media company to help Serbia’s sustainable development. In the times when most awards are commercialized, Aurea is an attempt to promote truly good projects that are often not talked about so much, but which definitely deserve more attention. A direct benefit to all nominated projects, especially winners, is an extensive media promotion. The main award – Aurea, is presented to a company that implemented the most innovative, socially useful and commercially successful project in Serbia in the previous year. A jury that evaluates nominations and selects the winner is comprised of unbiased and respectable businessmen and economic analysts from renowned companies and organizations, such as IFC, CCIS, FIC, Institute of Economics, Faculty of Economics, Innovation Fund, etc. The visitors of eKapija can vote for their favorites on the Internet.
