News Subscriptions

As the online news industry increasingly turns to paid-subscription models, the importance of a digital engagement platform becomes a priority for acquiring and retaining subscribers. Subscription-based models are revolutionizing the revenue streams of news websites worldwide. Embracing subscription strategies not only fosters recurring revenue but also enhances customer loyalty.

Redfast – Enhancing News Subscription Retention

At Redfast, we specialize in preventing subscription cancellations, helping news websites achieve a 16-25% increase in subscriber retention rates. Our platform intercepts cancellation attempts, presenting subscribers with dynamic save offers or cancellation surveys with a potential conditional offer.

Product-led businesses choose Redfast

It has enabled us to launch step-by-step campaigns that optimize user behavior for engagement.

Senior Director, Growth Marketing

Redfast has been a great partner to our streaming business. Using their tools, we are seeing a 12% uplift in saving users with billing issues and 9% lift in saving users who intend to cancel. They held our hand throughout the set-up process but also taught us how to use the tools so that we can now launch new prompts, create A/B tests, and update existing prompts by ourselves. The tool is great, but the partnership with the Redfast team is what really tips the scale. I highly recommend using Redfast for your Lifecycle/Retention needs.
