Mothership is a Singapore-born Internet media company. As of October 2019, we have the highest local penetration among all digital-only media platforms in Singapore.
We attract more than 20 million page views a month from more than 4.5 million unique users (updated October 2019), with over two-thirds of our audience between the ages of 25 and 44. This means young Singaporeans with spending power, and who are key decision-makers in their households and communities.
75% of our readers are on mobile, and we connect with them by creating high-quality multimedia news and entertainment content that encourages social sharing.
Our greatest hits connect with our readers locally and globally.
They include local stories (Exploring haunted HDB houses; good food around Singapore and in-depth explainers of topical issues) international ones (Thailand’s banana leaves packaging; interesting places around the region and our young persons’ perspectives on regional events), our election coverage (both the 2015 General Election and the more recent Bukit Batok by-election), as well as our feature interviews with prominent Singaporeans (Joseph Schooling, Ong Ye Kung, Royston Tan, and others).
We’ve also branched out into a wider range of video content that includes deep-dive documentary, features on Singaporeans doing interesting things, our runaway success Instagram Asks series that we do with celebrities and also some very unique advertising campaigns (here’s one we did for Grab).
Mothership is one of 11 websites in Singapore that has an individual license with the Info-communications Media Development Authority.
