March-May 2020

(March 5, April 2, May 21)
Digital Subscriber Class Summary

North American news media companies of every size and market are facing pressure to transform from print to digital. Doing so successfully requires a pivot in nearly all aspects of your organization.

This series will focus on helping you develop a successful strategy regardless your market and resources through coordination between three core workplace components:

• Newsroom
• Data
• Product

You’ll hear from media leaders who have already navigated these waters about how business managers can:

• Partner with their newsrooms to build and scale a digital subscription business
that adds new subscribers AND converts current print subs.

• Sift through data to find the right signals to track and grow paid subscribers.

• Leverage a digital product team’s mindset and experience to meet readers
where they are at every stage of the conversion funnel.
