Subscription Accelerator Content - S.A.C. (Round 6)

With this project, Diario de Navarra + Hiberus Media Lab would like to identify the ingredients that create the most engaging stories, leading to higher quality journalism and, in turn, more subscriptions. As a local publication it has limited capacity, meaning each piece of content created needs to maximise the chance a reader will subscribe. We would like to find a way to better inform journalists with the data collected.

Tailorcast (Round 6)

When looking for spoken audio content, users have basically two options: turn on the radio or look for a podcast. Radio offers a laid-back listening experience in exchange of a fixed and limited content offering and non-targeted ads. Conversely, podcasts offer endless choice and relevant ads, but discovering new content is cumbersome and demands users’ time. From a creator’s perspective, difficult discovery means small audiences and tiny revenues. Tailorcast’ goal is to deliver a radio-like experience with a content and advertising mix customized for each user, generating large audiences and revenues for spoken audio content creators.

Branded Content Inventory Optimizator (Round 6)

Pure Branded Content runs directly on the CMS allowing for perfect integration, and avoiding adblockers. The problem is advertisers want performance (clicks) and the main window of exposure to get them, the homepage, is extremely limited. That limits the campaigns the publisher can run, creating a revenue ceiling that's impossible to get through. BCIO will allow several BC campaigns to run on the same spot, multiplying the inventory. It will use AI models to present the optimal content to the best audience, therefore protecting the performance of each campaign.
