The blog

“We are living in the ‘subscription addiction’ era. Inspiration might come from a toothbrush or a guitar rental company. What I find most inspiring is how some subscription companies strategically build communities and promote the membership economy.”

Guida Marques Pinto, Digital Innovation Director at Público in Portugal, spoke to FIPP’s Ashley Norris ahead of the FIPP World Media Congress, where she will be part of a panel discussion titled, Counteracting subscription fatigue through product extensions, bundling and other initiatives.

It is one of several sessions and workshops on subscription business, including technology providers such as Mather Economics, Naviga, Piano, PressReader, and Zephr. Other speakers on subscriptions include to name two, Will Page, author of Tarzan Economics and former Spotify Chief Economist, and Douglas McCabe, CEO of Enders Analysis.

Congress takes place from 7-9 June in Cascais, Portugal.

Guida has been the Digital Innovation Director at Público since March 2020 (“Yes, that March.”). Prior to Público, “I worked for seven years at Global Media Group here in Lisbon in a number of digital roles: PMO, innovation coordinator and e-commerce director.

“Before that, I spent several years in the retail and construction sectors, mostly abroad, between Spain, China and the UK, where I completed my MBA at Imperial College. Recently I became a board director at the European office of INMA (International News Media Association), FIPP’s industry body counterpart with roots in the news business.”
