The efforts are starting to pay off. In 2016, website traffic increased nearly 50 per cent to 130 million unique visitors, subscription revenue doubled with a 75 per cent increase in new subscribers, and digital advertising revenue has increased by more than 40 per cent. The Washington Post is now profitable and growing. So how did they do it? Maybe this is one of their secrets:
“We view ourselves as a technology company as well as a media company”
