Over the years, Soundvenue has been growing from a pre-Myspace bands-and-fans community to a highly esteemed media outlet, released as a print magazine and on the web, as podcast and with a wide range of various community events.
During the years 2006-2009 I headed a huge redesign of the media online, focusing on the three themes of People, Opinions, and Play. We build media players for the discovery of new cutting edge music and video’s from the streets and the community events. We strengthened the editorial leve and status of the media giving room to more elaborate story formats. And we grew the engangement of the community with debates, interactive event calendar and a subscription structure covering both the print magazine, access to premium benefits online, such as music downloads, discounted registration for concert and parties and webshop discounts.
Especially the subscription concept covering a monthly recurring magazine delivered by mail and range of online benefits was a challenge in the early days of online subscriptions and recurring payments.
