Innovation 2016 chapter: How micropayments can deliver new revenue, readers and insights

Micropayment systems have been notoriously unsuccessful in the past. However, Blendle has proven that young people really will pay for content. Read the Blendle case study and other success stories in the micropayments chapter download from FIPP's Innovation in Magazine Media 2016-2017 World Report

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. 

Innovation micropayments ()

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.

  • Building the future of journalism: analyse, atomise, amplify, archive

    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.

  • How to develop your chatbot strategy

    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.
