When you decide to offer memberships for your publication, you are contributing to a stronger, more independent media landscape. It’s not so much about your own ego, or earning money. You are following in the footsteps of a growing number of publishers, joining the independent media movement. When you choose to offer memberships, you’re putting yourself in great company!
With who, exactly? Hundreds of publishers are already using Steady, but not all of them are magazines with a large reach. Smaller publishers and projects are particularly good at running membership models because they tend to have a closer connection to their community and therefore a higher level of credibility.
Memberships are fantastic because they work for all kinds of projects with regular output, big or small, mainstream or niche, blog, podcast or video.
Below is a small selection of Steady projects to help get you inspired. Since Steady launched in Germany, many of our most successful projects are German. But we have a growing number of international projects, too.
