What is Community-Powered Journalism?

We provide a detailed roadmap for media and news organizations to achieve symbiosis and sustainability in concert with the communities of people served.


Where to begin?

“What can I do TODAY to bring readers and editors into a dialogue? What (smaller) methods or questions or suggestions do you have for me?”

Reaching new audiences

“How can we reach people who are, so far, not interested in our content? How can we find out who those people are and what can we do to serve them best?”

Mapping the Customer Journey

“How do I get a total picture of how people become members, so that I can get others to follow the same path?”
