Reducing Friction/Conflict at the Point of Sale – the News Industry

By: Elizabeth Coffey, Marketing G2 Digital Marketing Specialist


Readers have other options when they come to your news site for information and those other options are usually free. So how do you compete with free?


Simple, you make it easier for them to pay a small nominal fee to read the article that they've already searched for on your site than it would be for them to start their search all over again to find a free source of information on the topic where they won't get all of your extra features and they won't be adding to your ad-based revenue.


People value their time and by reducing the friction or conflict at the point of sale (i.e. making the article easier to buy than performing another search), you’re not wasting your readers’ time, providing value, and as a side effect improving the user experience on your website.
