Building a Better Paywall: Monetizing Digital Content

If record labels were the canaries in the coalmine for digital entertainment, newspapers are bearing the brunt of digital disruption in news and information. With print circulation declining and ad rates collapsing, when and how will those proverbial “digital dimes” become dollars?

There have been spots of success in getting customers to pay for content online, including gaming and some segments of music and video. And newspapers and other information organizations are scrambling to roll out paywalls, usually supporting subscriptions and cross-platform access. Different models for content packaging and pricing are emerging gradually. Understanding consumer types and preferences through survey analysis is critical for building successful paid content strategies.
