Blendle's approach showed that not only will young people pay for content, they really will read it on their smartphones, but only quality content, and only if they can get their money back if they don't like what you sold them.
The Innovation micropayment chapter download looks at the lessons publishers can learn from the Blendle experience including:
1 - Micropayments for journalism can work, but not for news
2 - Readers punish clickbait creators by demanding refunds
3 - Micropayments are a great measure of quality. Publishers and journalists can now see what kind of stories attract paying customers and what type of stories get the most refund requests
4 - Micropayment revenue is additional revenue, not cannibalism.

Content is a collection of data, an array of information and a bundle of details. As such content is flexible, it does not care on which platform it’s published or when it’s shared across social media and certainly content does not prefer one reader over the other.15th Mar 2017 Opinion
If you have Alexa, Amazon’s intelligent personal assistant, then you probably start your morning with a conversation with a chatbot. Because let’s admit it: chatbots are already everywhere. On the one hand, we love to hate them because they are, well, not human. On the other, we love to love them because they create an interactive and personalised experience. Brands have been quick to adopt this technology. Too many media companies lag behind experimenting in this field.16th Mar 2017 Insight News
