Designing and executing the “perfect” news subscription experience is arduous work. In this Master Class, INMA breaks down this experience into three focuses:
Differentiation: What is the value of differentiation of paying reader experiences? What are the differences between paid and free? Is it about content, layout, features, competence factors? How does one measure ROI and KPIs?
Habit: What habit-forming products should a publisher focus on? Personalisation? Newsletters? Push notifications? App experience vs. Web experience? How to differentiate on-site comments vs. social media comments?
Product development: What is best-practice in user experience of payment flows, customer and product research, productising and optimising, prototyping, and listening to readers?
New strategies and tactics for products and monetisation
Not just the best app, but the right app to monetise
Is the paid subscription experience differentiated enough vs. free Web sites?
Not only about whether it works, but whether it works for a paid Web site
What experiences do readers require to help them be happy, paying customers?
Content is a commodity, so how it’s displayed and presented can be the differentiator
What are the KPIs and ROI of differentiation?
To manage, we must measure: for example, do we put more money into journalists or product features?
To what degree does personalisation encourage habituation?
Should we curate with editors? Personalise with machines? Story selection or context? Heavy or light tech approach?
What range of habit tools do publishers have?
Newsletters, push notifications, comments, app experience vs. Web experience
What is the range of best practice in product development?
User experience of payment flows, customer and product research, prototyping, productizing, optimising, feedback loops
