Slate to introduce a membership plan
from The New York Times
In the hunt for revenue in the digital era, news publications have tried everything from putting up paywalls to soliciting donations. The digital magazine Slate, nearly two decades old, plans to experiment with a strategy somewhere in between. It recently began to market a new membership program called Slate Plus. The initiative, said David Plotz, Slate’s editor in chief, will try to coax revenue from its most committed readers and devoted listeners of its popular podcasts. A membership — costing $5 a month or $50 a year — will allow special access to Slate’s writers and live events.
