New Revenue Streams Slow Decline of Newspaper Industry

Associations Now

Adjusting business models and finding new sources of income helped the newspaper industry slow its revenue decline to just 2 percent in 2012. The newspaper industry’s revenue peaked in 2005, and it’s been downhill ever since. Newspaper revenue fell just 2 percent in 2012—thanks, in part, to the inclusion of new revenue sources in NAA’s data. When I see organizations creating new revenue streams that work, it is always because it meets a member need.

The Key to Taking Risk in 2014 is Non-Dues Revenue

Tom Morrison

There is a lack of innovation, seeking out member''s business needs, and listening for those things that could be huge drivers to member engagement, expanded revenues, and rising net worth. After the 2009 economic bust, every non-profit should be doing everything it can to enhance revenue streams to build its reserve funds. So don''t rule out interest income as a revenue source.

What Smart Associations Do Differently

Association Adviser

Since 2005, the two groups had jointly produced a successful annual show and realized that many constituents knew each other and were members of both associations. They can also provide new sources of sponsorship revenue and member leads by identifying trends in attendee behavior and content interests. Video is also a valuable form of content, learning, non-dues revenue and even membership leads. Hank Berkowitz, Association Adviser.

Steve Jobs and the Focus of the CEO

The product starts valuing the great salesmen, because they’re the ones who can move the needle on revenues, not the product engineers and designers. The phrase that jumps out at me is “they’re the ones who can move the needle on revenues.” There’s nothing wrong with moving the needle on revenues of course. I’m no business mogul, but I’m fairly certain that revenue is a key piece of organizational health. December 2005 (5).

Association Hunger Games: Victory or Defeat?

Aaron Wolowiec

According to a 2005 Harvard Business Review article, “Companies typically realize only about 60% of their strategy’s potential value because of defects and breakdowns in planning and execution.”. The resulting gap represents lost opportunities and revenue. I had the pleasure of presenting this year at the ASAE Annual Meeting and Exposition in Nashville. And, believe it or not, I didn’t talk about meetings or learning.

Association Hunger Games: Victory or Defeat?

Association Adviser

According to a 2005 Harvard Business Review article, “Companies typically realize only about 60 percent of their strategy’s potential value because of defects and breakdowns in planning and execution.”. The resulting gap represents lost opportunities and revenue. For most organizations, that might include a loss of conference attendees, a decline in membership or a slip in non-dues revenue – some or all of which could severely devastate an organization’s bottom line.

The first one was to circa 2005, when blogging had become a real-deal phenomenon, and associations and corporations were wringing their hands over whether their leadership should get involved.
