Our institution has worked with GhanaWeb for a little over a year now and it has been a very rewarding and beneficial experience thus far. In particular, the University has benefitted from the acquisition of an easily accessible, nationwide platform through which our academic programmes can be advertised. The invaluable opportunity to widen our potential consumer base is also well complemented by excellent relationship management and very reliable, prompt and efficient service in general. We would certainly recommend the GhanaWeb platform for any institution or business who wishes to market their products and service through a mass media channel, and as an institution we look forward to further extending our partnership with the company long into the foreseeable future
