FYI Boosts Subscribers & Revenue With Charleston Post And Courier

FYI Success In Charleston
GRAND PRAIRIE, TEXAS (April 25, 2103)--FYI Television, Inc. (FYI), the nation’s premier provider of entertainment metadata and image content, has been instrumental in helping create a substantial subscriber and revenue-building re-launch of The Charleston Post and Courier’s subscription-based TV Week book. 

The Charleston Post and Courier has seen an 19.5% increase in subscribers, and we expect nearly $50,000 in additional annual circulation revenue in just the first three weeks since the transition,” according to Steve Wagenlander, The Charleston Post and Courier’s Director of Audience Development.

FYI was part of the transition team assembled by Wagenlander that included the newspaper’s circulation, advertising, editorial, production, and marketing staff.

“This project was a true collaboration.  And, it followed a path that was really the perfect utilization of our new product development process—consultation, development, new product launch, and customer service support,” said John T. Dodds, Vice President of Newspaper Sales for FYI Television.

“We were able to bring our high level of product and launch expertise to the table to inform The Post and Courier’s process.  Every time we can add additional resources to complement our client’s endeavors—reducing the impact on their staff’s time and costs—it’s a win-win for all involved,” added Dodds.

Along the way, FYI participated in on-site meetings, conference calls, prototyping of the improved guide, reader survey development support, and marketing materials development support, all in addition to the “core” new product development support.

As a result of the team’s effort, The Post and Courier’s guide grew from 24 to 40 pages, and from 65 to 110 channels—plus added features and a fresh new design—so the the opt-in cost of the guide was able to double as well.

“FYI Television was a crucial part of our transition team—and the success of our new TV Week+ product.  Their support during the transition kept us informed, their product development skills are unmatched, and the results speak for themselves,” said Wagenlander.
