December 2014 marked a significant transition for Caribbean360 as we introduced digital memberships.
This is an important step that we hope you will see as an investment in Caribbean360.com: one that will strengthen our ability to provide high-quality journalism and maintain a sustainable business during 2015 and beyond.
On December 1, 2014 we implemented the worldwide rollout of our metered subscription model across Caribbean360.com.
This is how it works, and what it means for you:
- You will initially be able to view a minimum of 12 free articles per month before being asked to subscribe. The subscription costs less than US$1 per week, and will provide unlimited access to all Caribbean360 content and support the biggest expansion of our news-gathering operations since Caribbean360 was founded in 2009;
- The home page at Caribbean360.com, our email newsletters, and all section fronts will remain free for all users at all times;
- You can also GIFT our digital memberships to family and friends. This is a great way for those connected to the Caribbean living abroad to keep up to date on news in the region.
We remain committed to all of our readers, and we have worked hard to reach the right balance between ensuring access to critical news and building a sustainable business.
