Supercharge your audience funnel for maximum revenue
iQ Audience+ gives you powerful new tools to lift your membership rolls and preserve advertising revenue, while boosting audience engagement.
Digital leaders at media organizations worldwide are asking the same question: How do we convert casual website and app visitors into highly engaged—preferably paying—members, and keep them engaged after they've joined?
The answer: iQ Audience+ by TownNews.
iQ Audience+ is an innovative audience acquisition and retention platform that enables publishers, broadcasters, and digital-native media organizations to precisely tailor their conversion funnels using machine learning and proven industry best practices.
A smarter, more dynamic meter
Traditional paywalls and meters are blunt instruments that treat all visitors the same way.
With iQ Audience+ you can tune your meter or paywall so that it grows your subscriber base without dramatically impacting ad inventory. Harness the power of audience and behavioral data to deliver the right offer at the right time:
- Present a membership discount to visitors who are in a "high propensity to subscribe" audience.
- Encourage loyal—but unsubscribed—visitors to sign up for your daily email newsletter. This boosts engagement, increasing the likelihood of a future paid subscription.
- Present drive-by users with more programmatic ads while returning visitors receive an enticing digital membership offer.
Those are just a few examples. We'll work with you to configure your paywall/meter so that it drives subscribers . . . and doesn't drive them away.
Your goals, your rules
Every organization has different goals, and those goals are ever-changing.
To help you exceed your unique goals, iQ Audience+ features flexible rulesets that allow you to target visitor or content segments with distinct registration/subscription packages, notifications, offers, newsletters, and more.
