Marketing has a couple of distinct focus areas today:

  • Partnership Development
    • Creating agreements whereby Hindupedia can edit & reproduce articles originally posted on partner sites
    • Creating agreements whereby Hindupedia content is embedded inside of other websites
  • General Awareness to raise popularity & usage of Hindupedia
  • Link Development -- getting other sites to link to Hindupedia
    • Embedding references to Hindupedia within different Wikipedia articles (both as external links and "references" inside articles)
  • Planning:


  • American Institute of Vedic Studies -- permission by David Frawley to reproduce their articles
  • Hinduism Today -- agreed to let us reproduce & edit content--however, each article must get individual approval as they don't own all copyrights themselves. They are willing to send us photographs from the articles as well--in contact with Arumugaswami.
  • Dhivvya Dharsanam -- website about temples. agreed to let us reproduce & edit content
  • SAKSI -- agreed to let us reproduce & edit their content as long as there is a link back to the original location
