netimperative.com announces successful conclusion to its membership drive Friday 11 May 2001 PDF Print netimperative.com, the UK's sole remaining web-only provider of news and analysis on the UK internet industry, has announced the successful conclusion of its recent campaign to convert its membership to a paid-for basis. Over the last couple of weeks, the site turned to its membership base to discover whether or not they would be prepared to pay a membership fee. The service promised to take no money until enough members had pledged to pay, to ensure that the service would continue. On 9th May 2001, the site informed its membership that following the success of its campaign, a paid membership service is to be introduced from June 2001. The daily news service will continue to be free to the industry at large, although access to content will only be free for 24 hours. Paid-for members will have full access to the archive of over 10,000 articles chronicling and analysing the development of the UK internet industry, as well as free entry to netimperative.com seminars, special discounts on events and services, as well as a free subscription to the weekly UK TMT Datasheet. Chief executive Felicia Jackson said "we are delighted to have received such support from the industry that we serve, and we look forward to continuing to deliver the quality of service on which netimperative.com has prided itself. The fact that the industry recognised the need for a change in our model, and agreed to support it, has provided a huge boost to the company." Over the next couple of weeks, the service will be asking those members who have pledged their support of a paid-for service to complete the process. Free members of the service will continue to receive news, newsletters and requested information on netimperative.com products, events and services, but will not be entitled to special discounts. They will also be asked to pay a nominal fee for any netimperative.com seminars they choose to attend.
