Can people place an order for a print and/or online subscription though my web site?
Newspapers can take orders for just print subscriptions or can also use our online subscription model to charge for access to web content.
Our Online Subscription Model generates revenue while simultaneously protecting circulation for the newspaper’s print edition. The system limits access to the “fresh news” to paid subscribers while leaving the archives open to the public.
Open archives continue to be a major source of traffic from the search engines as they draw in readers that are looking for information on the issues covered by the newspaper.
Online only subscriptions can increase newspaper profits by eliminating mailing expense.
No late delivery complaints is an additional benefit. Local online only subscriptions are at the same rate as the print edition. This also increases newspaper profits by eliminating delivery costs.
