Revenue contribution of sponsored content published on SAYS.COM has also doubled in April 2015 compared to April 2014, delivering unique, shareable social content to over 60 major advertisers in Malaysia

In June 2015, an epic, historical milestone was achieved when a sponsored story created for Pampers Malaysia exceeded 1.02 million reads, gaining high organic traction and audience relevance one year after its published date
