In India, a country with 1.3 billion citizens, News plays an important role in educating and informing people about the current affairs and latest updates occurring across the world.
With the world becoming more digitized and connected, there is a steep decline in the circulation of newspapers and a massive increase in Online News consumption. By 2020, almost 100% of the Indian population has access to online News making it the number one visited content category across the nation.
The online visit numbers are not the real charm here. It is the revenue. News portals make billions through online marketing and other digital practices.
Any new product, service, or even a startup that is promoted on the News portal gets national attention, reaching out to billions of people from both the urban and rural communities.
Gone are the days when people had to take out time to read physical newspapers. With the smartphone revolution, digital news reigns over the News business. Getting information is now on the tip of the fingers and easier than even procuring physical goods.
There are two major mediums of providing News content through digital platforms. The first is News Web Portal and the second that has a lot more impact with its various enhanced features such as push notification, email alerts, etc
News Portal Apps yield higher impacts than a News Web portal since it is more personalized and is always available on your consumer’s smartphone.
News Portal App
Unlike the News Web portals that are highly overcrowded on the Webspace and search, News Portal Apps for smartphones is a fast-growing medium that is still open for smaller companies and is far less congested by competition.
Large News companies are still trying to break into the News Portal Apps business and smaller regional news companies have no presence at all.
This is an excellent opportunity to build a News Portal App for your News Company, especially if it caters to the local population with their Native Language. The growth effects are almost immediately visible and the opportunity to increase your revenues from your News Portal App is massive.
Whether you are a startup or already an established News company, with 13 years of experience in developing Apps and Software for some of the largest IT companies, the colourmoon is the Best News Portal App development company for you.
How Online News Media generates Money
There are multiple ways through which your News Company can generate revenue through the News Portal App.
Listed here are some of the media revenue models.
Now Check, How do news media companies make money?
- Advertising: Online news is mostly offered free of cost and hence making money through other mediums is important for your News Company.
Once your App has a decent amount of downloads and users many businesses approach you to advertise their products and services for a fee. This is one of the best ways to generate income for your News Company and subsidize the costs to maintain your News Portal App business.
Since the start of News publications, advertising products and services of other companies and businesses has been the most common revenue model of making money.
- Affiliate Marketing: There are millions of businesses across the digital marketers who want you to promote their products online.
With the News portal App, you can promote these online businesses and generate huge amounts of revenue. These affiliate programs are easier to procure than traditional business products and can effortlessly be promoted through News content.
- Subscriptions: Most large News companies are slowly moving towards the Subscription revenue model since it is a very secure way to generate revenue.
The subscription model is similar to that of physical newspapers, magazines, cable Tv, etc., where the consumer pays you a small fee to access great content from your News Portal App.
- Pay-per-item: This revenue model is tougher to implement than the other revenue models but if your News provides significant value to your consumers, they would not hesitate to pay you a fee for your special news articles.
There are other ways to generate revenue from your Apps such as merchandising, promoting your other business, etc., however, these are fewer than the above four models.
