We’ve got great news to share: we are just days away from switching over to our brand-new Business Day website.

The new site has several advantages over the current BDlive website:

– It has a modern, clean design and loads much faster.

– It is responsive, which means that it automatically adjusts to your mobile or tablet screen size.

– It will soon have a comments function.

– It is part of BusinessLIVE, another new project that brings together the best of Times Media’s business content.

Get a preview of the new Business Day website here. Once it is fully live, you’ll be directed here whenever you visit www.bdlive.co.za or www.businessday.co.za.

How does this affect me?

Change can be upsetting, but this switch is actually quite simple. You’ll be directed to the new Business Day website whenever you visit www.bdlive.co.za or www.businessday.co.za. There you’ll find every day’s content from Business Day presented on one page, just like on BDlive.

When you visit the BusinessLIVE home page, however, you’ll see the best of Business Day along with content from our other business titles – see below for more on that.

All articles sourced from Business Day that you read via BusinessLIVE will have the Business Day logo at the top, so you’ll know the source.

Business Day will still publish content on Facebook and Twitter to its followers as usual and keep sending out its popular, twice-daily email newsletters.

New Business Day app

We have also launched a new version of our app – previously titled BDlive but also now simply labelled Business Day. Get it now to enjoy the new design, video support, greatly improved load times and plenty of bug fixes. For those of you who have the current BDlive application installed, if you app hasn’t automatically updated, you can manually update it via Apple’s App Store or the Google Play store.
