Guardian sets goal of 2m supporters in next stage of ambitious strategy

After a three-year period during which costs have been reduced, revenues increased and the landmark of 1 million paying contributors across web and paper reached, the editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner, and the Guardian Media group chief executive, David Pemsel, unveiled the next stage of their strategy. “One of the great successes of the past three years has been the willingness of readers to support our journalism and our purpose,” they said in an email to staff on Wednesday. “As we look ahead, we are setting a new goal for the whole organisation: to attract 2 million people to support the Guardian financially by the end of our 200th anniversary year, in 2022.” “Three years ago, the Guardian faced severe financial challenges,” they said in the memo.

Publishing News UK: Guardian Turns a Profit. “The Guardian has been consistently loss-making,” read the Wikipedia entry on the publication, till yesterday.

It was quickly edited after the British daily announced that The Guardian and the Observer have broken even—for the first time in 20 years—aided by record online traffic, reduced costs and increased financial contributions from readers. “Guardian News & Media recorded an £800,000 operating profit for the 2018-19 financial year – compared with a £57m loss three years previously,” the company said, “ensuring the business is existing on a sustainable basis following the culmination of a turnaround programme put in place following years of substantial losses.” This is a remarkable feat in an extremely challenging market, especially since The Guardian’s model is unique among news publishers. It keeps its journalism outside a paywall, while asking readers to contribute to help subsidize its reporting. By Monojoy Bhattacharjee Related posts. Publishing News UK: Guardian Turns a Profit.

"I remember looking at the ones in the advertising world thinking, how on earth are we going to go from where we are now to that? " Nicklin credits this framework with pushing people to do things differently, and says that it focused people's minds in the business. Are Paywalls Saving Newspapers? Media outlets large and small have adopted digital paywalls to augment dramatic declines in print revenues, but given their negative effect on website traffic (and, in turn, online advertising), are paywalls an effective sales strategy?

Are Paywalls Saving Newspapers?

A new study that incorporates data on the four primary revenue components of traditional newspaper companies—print subscription, print advertising, digital subscription, and digital advertising—finds that for companies with high circulations and large amounts of exclusive content, paywalls can increase overall sales, often by increasing demand for print subscriptions.

Newspapers with less exclusive content, however, have generally experienced losses when they started charging readers to access digital editions, according to the research, which studied major newspaper firms in the United States.

How the New York Times is convincing commercial partners to pay for its journalism. The New York Times had a wish list. It wanted coverage of the emerging human subcultures that young journalists can be so adept at spotting, and it wanted to report them in a way that was visually arresting and likely to thrive on social media as well as its own platforms. Its solution was a remarkable project called Surfacing, which has generated features on subjects as diverse as a female “Roller Derby” team made up of members from indigenous peoples from around the world, and the Black Panther “cosplayers” who like to dress up in the outfits of characters from the recent Hollywood fantasy film. But perhaps stranger than all of that is the fact that this editorial project from the world’s most famous newspaper title is underwritten by a snack brand, Véa, a trendy cracker made without artificial ingredients.

Billionaire-Proofing the News When Ricketts shuttered Gothamist and DNAinfo, and when Thiel’s lawsuit killed Gawker, there was a real danger that the crucial journalism all three sites did would not only cease, but be wiped from history entirely, their archives expunged. The immutability and permanence of information on the blockchain would make that nearly impossible. “They’re ‘billionaire-proofing’ journalism, and I think that’s crucial now,” Moore says of Civil. Civil is being developed in partnership with Consensys, a software incubator for applications on the Ethereum platform. Ethereum’s token, ether, is the second-largest cryptocurrency after bitcoin, with a market cap of over $70 billion; while bitcoin is largely a medium of exchange and investment, Ethereum is a customizable full-service platform onto which applications like Civil can be built.
