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