There is always a lot of experimenting going on in this new world of media. I recently heard that something like 80 percent of the Washington Post’s distribution is through outside channels.
That’s even more true for Trahant Reports. My material is used by other publications, and on good days, is posted and reposted across social media.
My goal is to have lots of readers (it’s why we do this, right?) and to one day be sustainable.
So I experiment.
A couple of years ago I tried an app. It’s still there, but frankly, not many people find my content.
Today a new experiment begins. My content is now found through Apple News. If you have an iPhone, open the news app, search for Trahant Reports and subscribe. That’s it. Then you’ll have every new post as soon as it’s up.
Let me know what you think. Thanks! — Mark Trahant
