It amazes me that there is such a “todo” about “paid content” being the NEW revenue model for publishers.
News Corp.’s Rupert Murdock is leading the charge on this one, but it seems rather silly to me that he’s proposing it like it’s something new. It’s not new at all! PressDisplay.com and SmartEdition have proven the paid content model for years. Check out this week’s Editor’s Weblog’s article: PressDisplay: a proven method for newspapers to monetize online content.
Reporter Liz Webber interviews NewspaperDirect’s Director of Strategic Development on PressDisplay.com and how it has been generating revenue for publishers’ content since 2003….and very successfully I might add.
