Publishing options expand, offering increased flexibility
The 100 Companies continues to expand its options and flexibility based on innovative feedback from its network members. In 2019, the brand journalism platform expanded publishing choices from two to nine options. In 2020, The 100 Companies introduces a monthly flexibility option: while members commit to an annual publishing plan, they can now choose to increase or decrease the number of stories per issue and publishing frequency on a month-by-month basis. “We continually find some of the best ideas for the growth of our company come from listening to our innovative members, who bring their own creativity and perspective to our network,” said The 100 Companies publisher and founder, Chris Schroder.
