Newspack European Expansion Application
With 27 sites launched and 50 more preparing to go live, Newspack is picking up speed. But we want to move even faster, so we’re now offering a half-price discount for three months to the first 25 European newsrooms that are accepted into our subscription plan before November.
By joining Newspack, you’ll get a new website, including, in most cases, the migration of your existing site. We provide hosting, security, updates, backups and support on WordPress.com. You’ll get exclusive performance benchmarking against your peers.
One thing you’ll get that isn’t as obvious, but is central to the Newspack experience: substantial discounts on services such as Parse.ly. And membership in our community of users, which means full participation in our Slack channels and our weekly calls — both of which offer direct access to Newspack’s developers. Our clients determine what new features we spend time developing, and those priorities often come from these direct discussions. It’s also hard to overstate the benefit of being in constant contact with people working at dozens of other sites solving the same problems you have.
In a recent survey, existing Newspack users gave us a Net Promoter Score of 76 (considered exceptional) and top marks on everything from product features to customer support. When Newspack’s customers were asked to select one or more categories in which they’d seen improvement since launch, over 75 percent cited ease of authoring and publishing, site design and layout and mobile display; 67 percent cited improved page load speed; 40 percent noted improvements in SEO, audience acquisition and revenue.
After the discount period for the selected sites ends, Newspack will cost:
-- US$500 per month for companies with less than US$250k in annual revenue;
-- US$1,000 per month for companies with between US$250k and US$500k in revenue;
-- US$2,000 per month for companies with more than US$500k in annual revenue.
