Digital Subscriptions and Membership Models

October 2018

Media Transformation 2018 featured a five-hour workshop dedicated to digital subscriptions and membership models. Attendees were exposed to four promising case studies: The Star Tribune (Minneapolis), The Denver Post/Digital First Media, The Buffalo News and Spirited Media.
This report goes into great detail on the strategies being implemented at each of these companies. It is the first project of the newly launched LMA Local News Resource Center, a Partnership with Facebook, Instagram & CrowdTangle. We are grateful to the Facebook Journalism Project for funding the workshop and this report.
