The Media Consortium negotiates disounts on software that members express an interest in using.

Non-members may sometimes be allowed to participate in these discounts. For more information, please contact us.

Current Discounts:

  • Chartbeat. The premiere analytics software for news outlets seeking to understand what creates longer time on page, Chartbeat does have a free version. "Free," however, means the software comes without the bells and whistles some outlets need. For you, our discounted rate helps bridge the gap between the free Chartbeat used by smaller outlets and the customized versions used by the biggest players.
  • What Counts. There comes a time when Mailchimp is not robust enough. That's when you might go looking for an enterprise-level software solution. A group of Media Consortium outlets have organized a bulk buy with What Counts which enables us to offer this software for the same price as an "off the shelf" email program. Note that our members have found they need a dedicated staff person to maximize the benefits of the What Counts software.
