Enhanced Editorial Access

allow access to subscriber only editorial

Your Linear system allows you to restrict access of any editorial item or section to site subscribers with enhanced editorial access (see the Streak Ends in the sample Sports section).

Basic site subscribers will not have access to protected editorial until they purchase or are given enhanced access. Naturally, their enhanced editorial access has an expiration date (doesn't your print publication?). When a subscriber first enters their username and password, their access features are stored and they can freely move among restricted editorial items.

Notification: When a Web visitor attempts to access an editorial item requiring enhanced access, they'll instead be taken to the subscriber password screen with a notification alert of the required subscriber access. This screen will also include links to review subscriber services and to become a subscriber.

Acquiring Enhanced Editorial Access: Existing subscribers can review the subscriber services menu at any time. Subscriber services which they already have will be checked. To acquire enhanced editorial access, they'll simply check that feature and submit the request. You'll be immediately notified via e-mail, and once you've processed their payment (it can be configured to be free - but why?), their enhanced access will become active.

Strategies: We recommend you give free enhanced access to subscibers of your print publication and charge visitors who only wish to access your Web site. By placing your entire publication content on the Internet, but resticting some items, you recognize the value of access to your content. Your archives are valuable because you're the only one with all the data.

times newspapersWhen we realized we needed to upgrade our Web site, we knew we could not do it alone. Linear Publishing more than answered the call. All the new features we were looking for were already in place at Linear. In addition, if we came up with a feature not yet available, they created it.

We now publish two Web sites a week in less time than it took us to publish one. The free time has opened me up to explore new ideas and features to use on our site. It's a great feeling when you can get an idea and in no time have it up and running online. Thanks to it's ease of use, our Web site is getting better and better every day.

We are always getting compliments from our readers and advertisers. With help from Linear Publishing, we are becoming the e-voice of the community that we were striving for.
