Available for everyone, funded by readers
By Christian Eedes, 5 August 2020
According to Google Analytics, we had 31 003 users in July, an increase of 22% year on year. We are proud of this given the generally tough trading conditions for media – we note with interest that News24 will soon be launching digital subscriptions but we would prefer to keep this site open to all.
At the end of last year, we began a reader funding drive to cover some of our costs and continue to provide coverage of an industry we all care deeply about. We suggested an amount of R600 a year or R50 a month per individual with a view to achieving a total audience contribution of R300 000 per annum. To date, we’ve had just over 150 people pledge their support. We are most appreciative, but we still have a long way to go to reach our above-mentioned target by the end of 2020.
