Finecooking.com Launches Redesigned Site

Popular foodie destination online Finecooking.com, where food is the celebrity, redesigns its site to strengthen connection to users and attract more cooks at all levels.

PRLog - May 13, 2009 - NEW YORK -- NEWTOWN, CT.… Fine Cooking’s unique 100% focus on food and cooking creates a tantalizing, engaging online atmosphere unveiled in its freshly redesigned website.  FineCooking.com has merged high-quality content and imagery with new functionality where community is much more a part of all elements on the site – stimulating users to contribute and interact with editors, bloggers, advertisers, and especially each other.  

“Fine Cooking is about the hows, and whys, of cooking.  We go way beyond just recipes and “what’s for dinner”…helping cooks at all levels make good decisions about buying and preparing food and bringing out the cook in each of them,” according to Sarah Breckenridge, FineCooking.com managing editor. “There is a lot of give and take on our site with recipe sharing, conversations, comments and a lot of good feedback about what readers will actually cook, ingredients they’re interested in using, their likes and dislikes – all great insight for making Fine Cooking a bigger part of their lives.  The site redesign will further enhance those connections.”
•   Major content areas are visually more exciting with mouthwatering food imagery and enticing ways to join in hot community topics.
•   Site architecture pillars: Recipes; How To; Ingredients; Cooks Talk all have user interactivity opportunities.
•   Audience engagement is enhanced through customized advertiser programs created for food, appliance, cooking equipment, wine & spirits and other culinary product marketers.
•   Community related activities like Contests, Challenges and Gallery postings will have greater importance and visibility on the home page and play a more important role in integrated advertiser programs.

“FineCooking.com incorporates both ad-supported and paid content business models.  Our paid-membership Cooks Club is a rare online success story among publishing brands,” said Jason Revzon, VP Taunton Interactive.  “In a world where people can go to thousands of websites that give away recipes and everything else for free, Fine Cooking provides a level of online content, expertise, benefits and interactivity that our highly engaged members are willing to pay for.”

“FineCooking.com’s close bond with users, high level of customer satisfaction and experienced value, especially among paid members, is attracting a wide array of smart marketers.  Advertisers are able to build a relationship with our audience and make a connection that goes beyond the banner with sponsorships, interactive forums, Q & A participations with experts, integrated opportunities, product previews, and special online events offering the highest contextual relevance and a wide variety of exceptional marketing opportunities,” added Mr. Revzon.

Increasing its monthly traffic to 2.2 million page views and 400,000 unique visitors, FineCooking.com posted gains of 105% and 62% respectively on a year-to-year basis and is poised to attract an even larger, loyal audience of passionate cooks in 2009.
