  • Forbes explores viable path for writers in digital age
    Forbes is trying to find a digital way forward for well-compensated journalists with a model that pays contributors by a formula that takes into account unique monthly readers and, importantly, return readers, writes Lewis DVorkin. The publication's curated network of journalists, authors and experts allows writers to brand themselves and build communities. In 2012, "two contributors topped $100,000. We had a few at $75,000 and $50,000, and 25 hit the $35,000 mark. There is a long tail at $10,000," DVorkin writes. Forbes (3/18) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Financial Times' digital success may be a one-off
    The Financial Times, with its international and business focus, has achieved the switch to a majority of its subscribers being digital rather than print. But it's unclear that other newspapers can duplicate the feat of developing sufficiently large niche audiences, writes Jeff John Roberts. FT's large and expensive data and analytics team was a factor, Ken Doctor notes. (3/18), Nieman Journalism Lab (3/14) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
