Travel Guide and Magazine #73, South Pacific Costa Rica
These times of reflection, regeneration, and innovation have required us to rationalize, economize, and invent alternatives. The creation of new paths is a priority need. Just four months ago, one of the most talked-about topics was pollution; currently, it is the trend towards digitization.
For the past six years, we have already worked with the online magazine, so it was easy for us to transition to the digital version. However, not being able to print also hurt us. The advantages of a web edition are enormous, and more than 6,600 people worldwide have opened edition #72 (in two months).
Before, our clients asked for more international exposure. Due to restrictions, the promotion of businesses is preferred within Costa Rica to reach residents, national visitors, and investors interested.
Our Pointing Market Marketing team is pleased to announce the completion of the project Uvitaonlinemarket It is a page where you can offer your artisan products. The customers can place the order online and receive the merchandise in the safety of their home or collect it at delivery points or the new Collection Center in Bahia.
In this new edition, as always a very varied content awaits you, reflecting the great diversity of our Osa destination in the South Pacific of Costa Rica.
We recently experienced three moments of Eureka (they say they are born in the neurons above the right ear and arrive without warning).
Our concern was how to share Ballena Tales Magazine & Travel Guide-online most effectively with new readers?
The solution appeared in the QR code that can be scanned with the phone, installed, and always have the latest edition at hand; it can be shared or downloaded to the computer.
Every two months, when the new edition comes out, you can enjoy it. All our advertisers receive a poster showing the brand-new cover with the QR code that they share with their contacts. And we kindly ask you to share it, as well.
Our second challenge: How can you avoid reader saturation with a bilingual online magazine?
Eureka 2 - we separate the two languages. We now present two versions of the Magazine, one in Spanish and the other in English. In English, we publish on the 15th of every second month, in Spanish one week later. Our team is learning at a fast pace, representing advertisers optimally, and according to the new rules of the online game, we are linking everything.
Eureka 3 - Partnering with Pointing Market creates more visibility for our affiliates on the web and social media. For residents, visitors, and investors, Ballena Tales Magazine publishes content relevant to the South Pacific, resulting in excellent support for our clients.
Together with you, we can create your renewed presence on the web with a Business Page indexed by Google, the QR code or an application, a new website, or improve SEO on your existing site. We can create an online sales site or a network campaign for you!
Our 3 Eurekas are at your command!

Manassah is from Chicago (Illinois) and has lived in Uvita for five years. She left behind her job as a court reporter, well paid, and no less stressed in the metropolis of Chicago with a population of nearly 3 million people.

He who is looking for authentic quality cocoa without artificial additives has found the perfect place. The idea for Cacao Puro Muba Uvita came from Mrs. Sylvia Beita.

For five years now, she and her husband Enrique have created artisan products from cocoa beans.
