I’m rethinking my Friday newsletter a bit seeing as it usually gets less attention because my UK and European readers get it in the afternoon so I’m thinking more along the lines of weekend reads to support product thinking.
In that vein, we have a good piece from my friends at WNIP about how to build user profiles to support increased subscription conversion. Axios has built a seven-figure software and services revenue stream in less than a year. NPR (one of the public media networks the media group I work for is part of) discusses their programmatic journey. And I’ve got a good story about making a pivot once your UGC MVP starts to scale. Also, how one local site is reaching diverse audiences and growing revenue through civic partnerships.
And it proves that #FakeNews does pay.
