How do I monetize thee? Let me count the ways

As COVID shutters once-reliable revenue streams for publishers, it would be easy to fall into the trap of feeling like all avenues for making money from your media business have been exhausted.

This week, we’re here to provide inspiration. Damian Radcliffe has put together a comprehensive list of 231 (proven) ways publishers can make media pay for publishers both large and small.

The ideas – many hyperlinked to examples – cover areas such as advertising, sponsorship, philanthropy, memberships, partners, eCommerce and more. We hope there is something new for everyone to consider putting into practice.

If you’re interested in exploring any of these in more detail, we’d recommend downloading 50 Ways to Make Media Pay; a report written by Damian and published by WNIP last year. It looks at examples of publishers putting these revenue ideas into practice, as well as analysing who has seen success, and who learned valuable lessons.
