Summit Media, the leading multi-platform publishing company in the Philippines, is celebrating its 20th anniversary -- a true testament to its vision and remarkable growth over the years.
As the country’s trusted parenting authority for Filipino parents, Smart Parenting has been a part of that remarkable growth. Smart Parenting is proud of its contributions to Summit’s two-decade journey.
Both have had humble beginnings. Summit Media started as a one-magazine publishing company and now has over 20 magazine titles (including Smart Parenting, Cosmopolitan, FHM, Yes!, Preview, Candy, Esquire, Good Housekeeping), websites and books under its wing. On the other hand, Smart Parenting began as a section of lifestyle magazine Good Housekeeping. Ever in tune with the needs of its audience, Summit Media felt the need to provide a more comprehensive content that covered topics parents would find relevant and timely.
Thus, Smart Parenting was born in March 2003. The newly-launched parenting magazine was modern, relevant and a source for much-need local parenting content. It served as mentor, guide and friend to young Filipino moms in their journey through motherhood. Last April, Smart Parenting celebrated its 12th anniversary.
In 2009, in line with Summit’s innovative spirit, Smart Parenting joined the digital world with SmartParenting.com.ph. The website is founded on the same passion and drive for providing inspiring content, and now that content is accessible to parents anytime and anywhere. SmartParenting.com.ph was able to further the magazine's reach with timely stories, making the reading experience richer using videos, and the reach boundless with social media. Smart Parenting was now more present and accessible than ever before.
Along with SmartParenting.com.ph, Summit has 12 other digital titles including PEP.ph, Spin.ph, Topgear.com.ph, Cosmo.ph, Yummy.ph, Stylebible.ph, FemaleNetwork.com and more, making it the largest lifestyle digital publisher in the Philippines. This network of websites amasses 117 million pageviews every month reaching 14.7 million unique users.
For its 20th birthday, Summit pledges that it will continue to uphold its commitment to create targeted media that Filipinos can be passionate about. The same is true for Smart Parenting, which will continue to grow, expand, innovate and inspire.
There’s still so much in store in our jouirney through parenthood. Here’s to the next 20 years! #PassionOn
