We are raising the price of an individual subscription of the John Lothian Newsletter to $150 per year, a $10 jump from the last couple of years. We are also raising the enterprise subscription price by $10 to $100 per reader per year for all firms that are not John Lothian News sponsors.
We are also raising prices for sponsorships of our newsletters, which have gained greater traffic as a result of the launch of JohnLothianNews.com and the new front pages on MarketsWiki and MarketsReformWiki.
The John Lothian Newsletter of 2014 is a product of the John Lothian News team, led by Editor-in-Chief Jim Kharouf. While I am still contributing commentary or comments for the daily newsletter, it is the diligent and creative work of the editorial team of Jim Kharouf, Jon Matte, Doug Ashburn, Sarah Rudolph, Jeff Bergstrom that has elevated this product in its 14th year.
Additionally, we have become known for our high quality video work, produced by our multimedia staff of Ryan Lothian, Patrick Lothian and RJ Roxas.
Our video work was never more valuable to our readers in 2013 than when the residual interest issue was first raised in Washington, DC at a CFTC roundtable. This story was ignored by major media outlets until John Lothian News reported it in a Special Report video. This video became our most watched video of 2013, including an audience that included viewers all over Washington, DC and around the industry.
In 2013, we produced Special Reports also on Turkey, London, Asia, the CFTC’s TAC meeting on Automated Trading and Bitcoin. In early 2013, we published additional videos on our “Restoring Customer Confidence” series. In all, we published over 78 videos in 2013, including 54 video interviews.
Our MarketsWiki and MarketsReformWiki sites continue to attract a global audience, but also are key tools used by thousands of industry professionals. MarketsWiki now has over 46 million page views and saw 13.7 million in 2013. MarketsReformWiki now has 6.7 million page views and its growth has exceed that of MarketsWiki at a similar age.
In 2003, the John Lothian Newsletter was given its name, and a new voluntary pay subscription scheme was introduced. We ask you to pay for the newsletter if you find it valuable. Our goal for 2014 is to have more readers pay for the newsletter. We believe, no, we know we are delivering a quality and valuable product. If you are a long time subscriber, we believe you find it valuable too.
Therefore, we ask you to pay for your 2014 John Lothian Newsletter subscription today.
