Business & Event Coverage

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Sunhead is always looking for stories. Obviously! We’re in the business of telling the Caribbean’s stories. You have a story to tell us, and we’d like to tell the world!

If your business is off the wall, unique in the Caribbean, or your event is just the BEST thing you’ve ever planned, then we want to hear about it, and we’re sure our readers will want to hear about it too. If you’re an individual with a cause or an issue that’s been ignored, mishandled or you’re seeking to push for an investigation, we want to hear your story too.

However, in our experience, there is a way for us to work together that will make it easier for our staff and you to get the best out of our relationship.

Everyone is insanely busy. We are, you are and so we’ve created a little guideline for you work with when you’re seeking coverage from Sunhead.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Your business should be cool!”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Before we assign someone to write, we want to be impressed. We want to see unique business ideas, or really clever twists to old ideas. Do not invite us if your web site sucks. We’re serious. We’re not interested if your web site looks like cat maul. We’re looking for the folks who put real thought into how they approach the web. If you’re a business in operation in 2016 and you don’t factor user experience and content into your game plan, there is nothing we can do for you here. We want our readers to depend on us for great content, and if you’re not working to modern standards in your web site, we can’t send our readers to something unusable. This means no Wix, no Frontpage or WYSIWYG free domain sites, and nothing that looks like 2006, or worse, 1996.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]We’re a Caribbean magazine. We love we ting! However we ting out there doing it, we in dat! This means we’re covering the Caribbean anywhere in the world, in the flesh or in digital spaces. We cover issues, people, politics, the web, social media and a wide range of topics. If you read the magazine, you will see we’re not just interested in the Caribbean, but the world, the cosmos and life as we know it. Generally speaking we like to maintain our coverage focus to the Caribbean, so we hope that’s what you’re bringing to us.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Be down for the ex-809!”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Not pimped to every media house in the Caribbean…”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]We’re an online publishing house that depends on pageviews and ad revenue to pay the bills. Our readers do not come to our site to read what they can find in the printed newspapers and hacked to death on other blogs.
