Publishers on fire. Come join them.
We make sparks fly.
Modern Drummer Magazine
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, html issues, connected apps, custom design and 3rd party payment integration.
In their 1st year after launch they doubled their traffic and are taking in daily double digit paid subscriptions.
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.
Tea Journey publishes web issues and monetizes through Leaky Paywall paid subscriptions.
iOS and Android apps helped capture almost 50% of their paid subscriptions.
Tea Journey magazine raised almost $100k during their Kickstarter campaign and targets the top 7% of the tea drinking public.
The Austin Monitor covers local political and business news, which builds a valuable archive of information for local government and business readers.
They doubled their paying subscriptions using the archive feature of Leaky Paywall. 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.
Tens of thousands of data points in Military Living's searchable WordPress map database to make finding military lodging, camping and Space-A air travel easy for the military traveller.
Our Leaky Paywall handles the database and the R&R news access.
Harvard Law School
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.
Track and Field News
We helped this 50+ year old publication leap into paid digital subscriptions using Leaky Paywall.
Track & Field News produces real time T&F news and assembles monthly IssueM web issues. Their news and issue archives are search and social friendly, and now easily available to paid subscribers.

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."
