WSJ To Continue Paid Subscriptions And Increase Free Offerings
Emily Steel at the Wall Street Journal oddly enough is reporting on a decision made by WSJ Chairman Rupert Murdoch to keep a "significant portion" of the site behind a pay-wall.
Steel grabbed a quote from Murdoch at the World Economic Forum today, ""We are going to greatly expand and improve the free part of the Wall Street Journal online, but there will still be a strong offering" for subscribers, Mr. Murdoch said. "The really special things will still be a subscription service, and, sorry to tell you, probably more expensive."
I support the decision to keep things behind a paywall where appropriate. There’s more than one model to monetize content. Check out our article on the new Digg-WSJ marriage.
