The New York Times Used Twitter to Announce Online Subscription: Followers Lash Back - Page 3
You can’t blame the New York Times for trying to stay current. With all of today’s electronic gadgets that are available to us which are able to deliver updated products and services within minutes, you have to be part of that market. iPads and tablet style devices will eventually become household items just as the home computer and cell phones have become.
One time years ago we had a photo album in the bedroom closet and a book shelf full of books in the den. All our albums and compact discs were downstairs in the family room and all the newspapers were on the kitchen counter. We now can keep all that stuff on one small device. As the popularity continues to grow in the marketplace, there is no better time than now to start thinking about electronic services to your customers.
I feel this is a brilliant idea by The New York Times and even though it might take some time to see their online subscribers grow they will already be ahead of the competition; and once their competitors want to get in the game, it might be a little too late.
