Springwise is reporting that indie music, film and culture pub, Paste Magazine, is now giving its readers the option of paying whatever they like for a subscription – just like Radiohead did for their newest album a few weeks ago.
Our guess is that this isn’t going to be nearly as successful as the Radiohead experiment because people don’t have a deep, long-lasting relationship with the magazine the way they do with the band. Go get 11 issues plus 11 CDs for as low as $1 here. That’s what we paid.
We were thinking about how hard every agency in Denver works to get a leg up. How we work into the wee hours. How we corrupt our family lives. How we grind our brains until every word and every image is perfectly right. All in the hopes of outsmarting the competition, attracting the hottest talent and being the first to truly gain big attention on the national stage.
And then we thought about how few of the shops in Denver are truly using this site to promote themselves – a site with nearly a thousand visitors every day, including people from big companies like Pearl Izumi, big agencies like Venables Bell & Partners and big blogs like Ad Pulp. It made us think, what else do we have to do to get you to capitalize on a good thing? This site is not for us. It’s for you.
