Crain’s Chicago to start online subscription plan this week
by Chris Roush
Crain’s Chicago Business will introduce a metered subscription plan starting Thursday for its website, ChicagoBusiness.com.
“New combined print and digital subscriptions will now be available for $99 annually. For a limited time, current Crain’s print subscribers will be able to upgrade their subscriptions to include digital access free of charge.
“The majority of users will see no change.
“‘We have enhanced the user experience and instituted a subscription model that is current and fair. It satisfies the power user’s need for deeper Crain’s content while leaving other users’ access to the site unaffected,’ Crain’s Publisher David Snyder says.”
