What we do
Our WordPress powered publishing platform promotes effective digital strategy and delivers new paying subscribers.
How do we know it works?
Daily double-digit subscriber growth
Built from scratch, we helped Modern Drummer bring their 40 year issue archive forward into the world of Google search and social sharing.
We tackled their metered paywall, real web issues, connected apps, custom design and 3rd party fulfillment integration.
In their 1st year after launch they doubled their traffic and are taking in daily double digit paid subscriptions.
New efficient workflows brought the mission back into focus
We rebuilt iPolitics and incorporated Leaky Paywall, UniPress iOS/Android apps, corporate subscriptions, automated email list management and mailing, and the ability to feed in and quickly republish third party news feeds.
iPolitics uses IssueM to publish The Weekender, a special issue that goes live every Friday to catch readers up on the most important news of the week.
Zero to 1000 new paid digital subscriptions
In the months since Small Boat Monthly switched to Leaky Paywall, the number of organic subscriptions has gone from zero to four digits, with more added daily.
iOS and Android apps give their subscribers the modern reading experience they demand.
Doubling digital subscriptions by selling archive access
The Austin Monitor covers local political and business news in Austin, TX.
Not only do they sell a standard subscription for current news, they also upsell a premium level subscription for any news over 90 days old which helped them double paid susbcriptions.
Apps Power 50% of New Subscriptions
Tea Journey is the 3rd-most-funded Kickstarter publication ever. After launching on our platform immediately added 1500 new paid digital subscriptions.
iOS and Android apps helps capture almost 50% of their paid subscriptions.
Subscriptions up over 300%
The Practice is Harvard Law School's law journal and uses Leaky Paywall to motivate and manage paid subscriptions.
The Practice leverages Leaky Paywall to explode their email list, Twitter presence, and paid subscriptions.

We excel at building profitable subscription-driven publications for news and magazine publishers.
"We’ve been publishing Street Photography Magazine for 5 years on the iOS (former Apple Newsstand) and through our WordPress site using a membership site plugin (not ideal for the magazine business). These were two separate platforms that required two different workflows to publish each month. The WordPress version was always easier to create than the iOS platform.
I always dreamed of creating a WordPress based platform that would push the content out automatically to both iOS and Android apps, but didn’t have the time or expertise to do it right.
Then I found the Zeen101 suite consisting of Leaky Paywall, UniPress and IssueM that does everything I wanted…all from one company. We worked together with the team to create new mobile apps and to tweak our existing WordPress content to look good on the mobile apps.
And we were able to continue using our existing theme.
Today we are able to publish monthly issues in a fraction of the time and we generate additional web traffic from our premium content with the metered paywall system similar to the big publishers like the New York Times and others."
In addition to the tech, these guys know and understand publishing."
