Newscene just launched in beta for its new service that makes it simple for publishers to build a revenue-generating membership program without writing a single line of code. The goal, quite simply, is membership made simple.
Why It Matters:
Publishers pivoting to reader revenue is no less than a revolution. But it requires publishers to build a loyal, trust-based reader model in which readers feel like they’re part of a community. While daily news consumption is heading towards conversations in small groups with trusted voices, Newscene believes that memberships can be the way to fulfil both needs.
For inspiration, Newscene looked at publishers with successful membership models, including The Athletic and De Correspondent, to create an all-in-one publishing platform that would be an alternative to mixing different platforms such as MailChimp, WordPress and payment portals for membership publishing.
