Quartz is a WordPress publisher that is taking down their paywall. They’ve been going 10 years now and have gone through a few different business models. It looks like they’re moving to selling ads and also premium newsletters.
They now send out two premium newsletters per week and the cost is around $7 to $10 per month. Their pitch is “Our member-only newsletters give you concise analysis, forecasts, profiles, and advice in your inbox throughout the week”.
These are the two newsletters:
- The Weekend Brief—offering analysis and insights on one big news item of the week, plus the best of Quartz.
- The Forecast—a look at emerging industries and trends around the corner.
