Many Publishers Are Finding New Revenue in Premium Subscribers

At Axios—a recently launched news and analysis media company—readers who recruit 250 sign-ups to their "Smarter Faster Revolution" will be flown out to Axios headquarters for a lunch with co-founders Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei, in addition to other prizes. Recruit 25 and you get a t-shirt. (Also check out the very nice staff photos that Axios posts.)
