Readers Are Prepared To Pay For Online Content.

New figures from The Times show that readers are prepared to pay for quality online content.

The newspaper reports that over 105,000 readers have paid for online editions since its introduction in July, with an additional 100,000 readers paying for combined print and digital editions. The Times have around 50,000 subscribers who pay monthly for access to the The Times website and its iPad app and Kindle editions. The remainder are pay as you go customers.

Rebekah Brooks, Chief Executive of Europe and Asia for News International is quoted as saying “We are very pleased by the response to our new digital service. These figures show that large numbers of people are willing to pay for quality journalism in digital formats.”

The media industry has been awaiting The Times figures for some time, as it would give the sector an indication as to whether paid content would work.

a testimonial or two…

Since working with Jason from Search and More we have built up an excellent relationship with both him and his company. We truly feel that they are interested and committed to improving our on-line presence. From creating our weekly blogs right through to totally re-designing our website to ensure that it is ‘mobile friendly’. I would say that Search and More have become an integral part of our business and I would recommend their services whole heartedly.
