Growing subscriptions with great insights

The subscription economy is booming. In Q4 2022, subscriptions saw the strongest revenue growth for publishers, with an increase of 12.9% year-on-year. Despite cost-of-living pressures, it seems clear that audiences are continuing to prioritise premium content. However, publishers can’t afford to rest on their laurels either: according to a 2022 YouGov study, 29% of Britons had cancelled at least one subscription in the month prior and 91% hadn’t made any new subscription commitments in the same time period. Globally, consumers are cancelling subscriptions almost twice as fast as they are taking on new ones.
