Wizzard Media Launches Web Based Premium Podcast Subscription Service
Have you seen the press releases? Just in case you hadn’t, here’s a little summary via Podcasting News:
Wizzard Media partnered with online subscription expert MediaPass to offer this new service to its publishers. Integrating MediaPass extends podcasters’ smartphone-based monetization models to the web. The potential benefit to the subscription revenue model is that it builds on itself over time through renewals, unlike advertising-only models.
“While a lot of current podcast content will continue to be free for audiences, this new feature allows our publishers to boost revenues through customized subscription models, targeting the optimal mix of free and paid content,” says Laurie Sims, President, Wizzard Media. “Implementing this new service is as easy as AdSense and takes less than 15 minutes, delivering to our publishers the benefits of a sophisticated paywall without the immense startup costs.”
So, libsyn is offering a whole new fancy pants service for podcasters! The cool part about this service is that it’s not only for podcasters but bloggers as well. The functionality is pretty versatile. I can’t wait to see all the creative ways in which it can be applied by all sorts of online content creators!
Better than breaking things down for you guys here in a written blogpost, why not offer what a couple of awesome podcast consultants have published about our new release? You get a chance to hear about our service PLUS you get to know some pretty awesome podcasting professionals whose service you may use at some point 😉
