UPPER CUMBERLAND – Dozens of Upper Cumberland Business Journal (UCBJ) readers have already signed up to be among the publication’s first digital subscribers when its conversion from print begins Jan. 1.
Since announcing the platform change in October, staff members have been working to upgrade the UCBJ website and delivery method to ensure a seamless transition come 2015. Subscribers can continue to sign up for online access and order 2015 subscriptions at www.ucbjournal.com/digital.
“We’ve gotten a lot of great feedback already about our transition to digital, and over the next several weeks, readers will start to get a real good idea of what the UCBJ will look like going forward,” said Publisher Mike McCloud. “Advertisers say they like the targeted ad placement our new model will bring, and business leaders will be able to access timely content easier than ever before.”
While the November/December edition will be the last printed issue of 2014, the journal isn’t doing away with its print product entirely. There are plans to publish at least three special editions throughout the year; only paid digital subscribers will get full access to those copies. In addition, while parts of the online edition will be free to all, digital subscribers will receive full online access.
Digital subscriptions are available for $8 a month or a discounted rate of $75 annually. Payments are accepted via credit or debit card or through an existing Paypal account. For more information, visit www.ucbjournal.com/digital or call (931) 528-8852.
