Pay-For-News Service Targets 10%

The team behind an online journalism content service believes it can get 10% of users to pay for news.

According to the Guardian, the founders of the soon-to-launch Journalism Online see such a significant percentage of paying users as an attainable goal.

Journalism Online is among a number of start-ups which will work in partnership with publishers to provide a paid content service.

Users will be given the option to subscribe to view all the content of participating websites or can sign up for content bundles and niche packages.

Journalism Online was founded by Court TV creator Steven Brill and Wall Street Journal publisher Gordon Crovitz among others.

The service is scheduled to launch later this year.

Find out more about its paid content model and see its mission statement on the Journalism Online website.
