Dan Meyer of BizTimes Milwaukee writes about its new subscription model, which puts some of its online content behind a paywall.
Meyer writes, “There will still be plenty of free content on our site, including daily news stories, some of our regular magazine features, podcasts, online events and the webinars we’ve been doing since COVID-19 limited our ability to hold in-person events. Producing the stories you see on our website and in our magazine ultimately requires a revenue source. Requiring a paid subscription for some of them is one of the ways we can support more quality work.
“Our existing print subscribers will continue to receive their magazines, but we are no longer providing all of our print content online for free. The available subscription options do include a choice to also receive the print magazine. Current print subscribers, many of whom currently receive the magazine for free as part of our qualified controlled subscription model, can pay for access to the digital version of stories as well as additional Insider daily content.”
