NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beliefnet is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Patheos.com, in a merger that marks the joining of two of the world's largest inspiration and faith resources on the web.
While Beliefnet, a property of BN Media and the leading lifestyle site dedicated to faith and inspiration, and Patheos, an online resource for religious and spiritual engagement and dialogue, will continue to remain separate and true to themselves, the joining of the two web sites under one umbrella will open up further opportunities to foster the faith and spirituality discussion in a real and honest way. Combined, the websites reach 15 million unique visitors and generate more than 50 million page views each month.
"Beliefnet is a company who shares our values, and there could be no better community for us to join than theirs," said Leo Brunnick, CEO and Founder of Patheos. "This partnership will allow both parties to maximize and support each other's strengths. We're beyond thrilled to start this new chapter under the BN Media umbrella."
Building on the Past for a Successful Future
This isn't the first time Beliefnet and Patheos have teamed up. In 2013, the two companies entered into a strategic partnership, through which Beliefnet offered Patheos' advertising inventory to its extensive community. The move allowed advertisers to better engage their target markets and build stronger relationships with them.
"Our successful working relationship with Patheos has proved that together, we could achieve even more," said Steve Halliday, CEO of BN Media. "With this move, Patheos and Beliefnet will continue to be the leading providers of inspiration, spirituality and faith-based online content. It's truly a win-win for all."
Beliefnet.com, a property of BN Media, LLC, is the leading lifestyle site dedicated to faith and inspiration. Beliefnet helps people improve their lives and find comfort, hope and happiness. Beliefnet not only makes people feel good, but also encourages a sense of self that allows them to realize their greatest potential. It is through this discovery that its visitors are empowered to live a more meaningful life.
