EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
WHY SCOOP WORKS FOR PR PROFESSIONALS
WHY SCOOP IS WORTH PAYING FOR &
WHAT DO WE WANT YOU TO DO


1. WHY SCOOP WORKS FOR PR PROFESSIONALS

SCOOP PROVIDES FOR YOU AND YOUR CLIENTS THE FOLLOWING SERVICES
– WHICH NORMALLY COST LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY, FOR FREE:



- a large audience;
- a uniquely valuable audience;
- a uniquely compliant and open news media;
- a fair system of news exposure (a level playing field);
- a test bed for your work;
- a marketing tool;
- an intelligence service;
- a free online archive of your work - free to the public;
- free, direct and fast access to your stories from the world's
biggest Internet search engines

2. WHY SCOOP IS WORTH PAYING FOR

Because Scoop is free to the public it is better at the tasks it performs for you.

Does it make sense not to pay for something that is extremely useful – and is saving you and your clients money and time – just because you don’t have to?

And if not having Scoop will cost you money. And if scoop is delivering you valuable services for free that others charge for, then maybe it makes sense to pay a little towards the support of Scoop voluntarily.

3. WHAT DO WE WANT YOU TO DO

1. Become a Scoop Angel – A Sustaining Subscriber

Re: Scoop S.O.S - Please Forward This Widely!!!

Oh no,

Terrible news to hear. First City Voice and now Scoop. I wish I could say that the organisations I work for could afford to advertise with you. I'll have a think about ways in which we can help.

All the best,

AH
Marketing and Publicity Manager

Would be sad, wouldn't it?

Scoop has provided such excellent service since its inception. It has always been my first choice in the way of seeking important and interesting news 'straight from the horses mouth'. It would be more than a real shame if it failed to live on. If you guys need an extra volunteer count me in, there must be something I can do :)

cheers,

new life

I have been a reader of yrs for the past year or so - and have to admit as one who hardly buys a paper (I tend to spend 30-90 mins a day running around the nwspapers here and overseas) I find yr service useful - realistically you are going to have to charge either for postings (ie press releases) or charge yr readers. Ads wll not work - people who read email a lot (as I have for over 10 years..) don't even see the ads - my eyes just pass over them - and if they are too invasive ( as some so yrs where that took over a page for 10-15 seconds) - I tend to just ship scoop and read elsewhere.. Sorry guess this isn't what you want to hear - but better you know.

Hwr how this email started out is I guess I would continue with yr service if it charged, say $5/month + GST - if it was compulsory. If as you say you have 5,000 punters would be enough to keep your chin above water (presuming at least 1/3 will disappear)?

Good luck

Commiserations

Dear Alistair

What a pain! I recommend your site to all and sundry, but if the beastly Treasuryites and their ilk refuse to pay, it doesn't help. I tried to click to vote but nothing happened, and I can't seem to get to that page via the Web either. Any further instructions?

I've voted for you

and onsent to various others who should.

A bit mean putting the herald in the non-award. Their site works OK and at least they don't yet charge for archives.

Alastair

Sorry to hear that Scoop has got a case of the wobbles. I am a bit of a news junkie and enjoy receiving various updates from Scoop during the day. It used to amaze me how anyone made money off the net and I guess that is all coming home to roost for many dotcoms now. As much as I enjoy Scoop it is not a necessity for me so I can't offer any dosh, although I did vote for you guys. Good luck

Scoop 3.0 Update & Membership Sale: The End Of ‘Objectivity’ In Journalism

2019 looks like it might well be another really bad, terrible, not so good year for the traditional journalism model globally... on the positive side, smaller independent players with innovative digital models and a more open approach like our ScoopPro service look likely to be more relevant than ever.

Gordon Campbell: On America’s ‘Green New Deal’

‘Socialism’ is more of a political scare word than an objective condition. Even in the US, as Nate Silver’s 538 website pointed out this week there is polling evidence that modern Americans are inclined to treat socialism as meaning ‘equality’ rather than the ‘government ownership or control’ that Americans understood the term to mean back in the 1940s...

Gordon Campbell: On Listening To Ocasio-Cortez About Tax

In its attitudes to tax, New Zealand has been the last colonial outpost of Thatcherism. Change, however, may be in the air. More>>

ALSO:

Gordon Campbell: On The Nelson Fire And Climate Change

The Nelson fire has been a useful warning of things to come, given how climate change will (a) increase the likelihood of reduced rainfall and drought-like conditions in many parts of New Zealand, which – obviously – will raise (b) the fire danger and (c) the cost of providing the communities at risk with the enhanced firefighting capabilities that they’re going to need.
