March was an interesting month. We worked on a report that investigated how journalism has changed over the years. What we found is that the relationship between journalists and their readers is shifting. You can read more about it in the section “What’s new with Revue”!
Also, we’re happy to announce our integration with Refind 🎊 Now you can easily connect both platforms in order to pull content to Revue even easier ✌️
Launching Revue x Refind
This week we officially launched our integration with Refind! Refind is home to the best links on the web. It’s a platform that lets you follow interests of yours or people and then according to that, their algorithms find the best stories for you. Now you can easily pull your links from Refind into Revue with zero effort! You can enable the integration under “Account Settings” - “Integrations”. Also, since Refind is invite-only for now, you can use this link to join!
Not enough people are talking about email. Or newsletters for that matter. We want to change that. That’s how the idea for those “talks” series was born. This week we spoke to Steve O’Hear, writer for TechCrunch about email, newsletters and more!
This is the story of two women who bonded over artichokes in Rome and later on came together to start a newsletter about their mutual passion-news. That same digest, which laid the groundwork for their future media empire, now reaches 4 million millennials via email, daily.
What started as a quick email meant only for colleagues at the NOS is now a newsletter with approximately 30.000 followers and counting (in less than 4 weeks). We reached out to Arjen van der Horst, author of “Trump Daily".
Blendle is a pay-per-article news aggregate. The company has grown immensely and has gained popularity not only in The Netherlands, but in Germany and the States as well. We spoke to them about email and newsletters.
We also worked on a report about the changing relationship between journalists and their audiences. We conducted a survey among 130 journalists. Our results show that the spotlight is shifting. Read the rest underneath! 🤓
A survey conducted among 130 journalists shows that the spotlight is shifting. Journalists engage heavily with readers directly, who in turn are more likely to follow the journalist rather than the publications.
