Almost all newspapers are looking for ways to increase profit from online readership. You have loyal readers but are slowly moving away from paper to digital content. However, managing online user subscriptions; collecting their subscription fees; and securing access to different content across your website is easier said than done. This is where Paywallz can help. We help newspapers to easily allow their readers to sign up to various plans - managed and priced by you - and then seamlessly access that content thereafter. We collect the monthly or yearly fees and disperse it you and your partners in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
"We Tried This Before"
Some newspapers and other publishers of digital articles and blogs have attempted to use paywalls or other subscriber tools before and failed. In some cases, they completely gave up on this approach; opened all of their content back up to the public; and are back relying on advertising as their sole revenue source. Is this your experience? If so, please read on because Paywallz is different. Because of the Partners feature (described below), online subscribership works very well with Paywallz where it doesn't with traditional solutions. You can "partner" with other papers - both larger and smaller - and take advantage of the ability for your readers to "share" articles so that your subscriber base can grow much more quickly than with other solutions. So, what is the Partners feature and how does it work?
The Power of "Partners"
What makes Paywallz very powerful in helping newspapers to generate more revenues is our "Partners" feature. Simply put, Partners are others - affiliated newspapers, other online periodicals, vendors ... anyone with an on online presence - who you sign up as your Partner and who then puts a link or redirect back to your site on their site, blog or social pages. You agree with your Partner ahead of time upon a set commission from your earnings to share; enter it in to our portal; and we do the rest. We automatically pay out those Partner Commissions every time we pay out Publisher earnings. It's all done at the same time and you never need to worry about it again. You can do this with several Partners and thus see exponential growth of your subscriber base. (In many cases, your Partner will have their own Paywallz plan and have you become their Partner as well. In other words, you can both earn commissions from one another at the same time.)
