  • Q: Whats Black & White and Just Made a Huge Mistake? - Digital Music Insider
    15 a month This is a marketplace where news has been completely commoditized and made ubiquitous After all AOL The Huffington Post Yahoo and searching on Google are all absoluetly free Against this back drop 15 seems prohibitive Factor in Hulu and Netflix at 7 99 a month and the NY Times pricing strategy seems way out of whack 3 The consumer experience is bound to be frustrating With so much complexity guiding access consumers who have not signed up for the full 35 plan are bound to feel like they are having contradictory and unreliable experiences This kind of tiered access inevitably leads to broken experiences and customer service headaches 4 The NY Times is offering too much free content That s right too much free content If you are going to charge then charge 20 articles a month plus all this complexity sends a mixed free versus paid message The Times should stake their claim on paid or free and then execute I think the NY Times would have been much better off with a simple Pandora Radio type subscription offering Imagine a plan where you either became a full subscriber to the print version of the paper and all digital access is included or you upgrade your digital access for 3 dollars a month 36 dollars a year This upgrade plan would include unlimited multi platform access To my mind this would be a clean black and white plan instead today we are immersed in the old and in the gray Author Jack Isquith Posted on March 17 2011 Categories Digital Music News Fog Of War 2 thoughts on Q Whats Black White and Just Made a Huge Mistake Michael Nevins says March 18 2011 at 12 32 am Jack Another excellent post I agree the plan seems confusing and messy I think it s clear that subscribers should be able to pay a monthly fee and then get access to the content across all platforms Seems inevitable even despite the rights issues will be fun to watch TWC s legal battles over their new iPad TV streaming app I ve worked with a publisher who has similar challenges opportunities with their paywall It s tricky to find the balance between free and paid because search and social are increasingly driving the casual readers to content Naturally the hope is to turn those casual readers into paying subscribers If the paywall challenge comes up to quickly the publisher risks turning the reader off and training him her to avoid clicking on their links in the future It s a tricky balance to strike and requires some serious analysis of traffic sources conversion rates etc There have to be lots of good reasons to figure out a model where publishers own the relationship with the customer and save the 30 cut that apple takes The NYTimes Chrome app seems like a step in the right direction MN Reply Howard B says March 18 2011 at 4 16 am

  • The Week That Was: Facts & Scuttlebutt 1/21/2011 - Digital Music Insider
    music retail I dove deeper into the quarterly Apple numbers and decided that an Apple iDevice in every hand might just be the silver lining for music companies who no longer can count on radio retail or even a Kanye Jay Z collaboration to save their quarterly scorecard Tuesday night we encountered a Simon Cowell less American Idol without a clear cut villain but then again it s just show 1 On Wednesday scuttlebutt built on the rumour of Sony licensing Spotify for the U S which was no doubt amplified by the sobering news of the worst selling 1 album in Soundscan history Cake s aptly titled Showroom Of Compassion which barely managed to break 44K units sold On Thursday AOL played the potty humor card and I mostly cheered MTV s announcement of an upcoming mess their description not mine of a Digital Music Awards show Finally we limped into Friday bloody but not beaten with news that WMG was both being vetted for a possible sale and still circling EMI as a buyer He who s not busy being born is busy dying Mr Dylan once said And as we break for the weekend word comes from Billboard of 62 layoffs at Universal where our sympathies reside for all affected Author Jack Isquith Posted on January 21 2011 Categories Scuttlebutt The Week That Was Post navigation Previous Previous post Launching a Product With Apple 2 Monetizing Approaches Next Next post Imitation Is The Sincerest Form Of Flattery Jack Isquith About Follow Us Sign up for our mailing list Email Address Recent Posts The Critics Were Wrong What Was The Greatest Year In Music Guilty Pleasures Are Dead And Bigger Than Ever Van Morrison Treasure No Longer Buried On Bruce Lundvall Recent Comments Dick Boddie on On Bruce
