Food fight: Bauer and Tangible diverge on the paywall path

With digital revenue still not measuring up to print losses and ad blockers becoming more common in the top-right corners of browsers, media owners increasingly have to reassess how they go about sustaining their online businesses. And over the last few weeks, Tangible Media and Bauer, two of the nation's biggest magazine publishers, illustrated there's no concrete rule applicable to doing this, with the pair taking divergent paths as they set about creating commercially sustainable online properties. We compare Dish's paywall strategy with Bauer's launch of the Food to Love brand.

Do Good Dating, not swiping: young Auckland trio launch a unique matchmaking site

Yesterday we looked at Tinder’s disruption of the online dating market, today we look at a new dating site promoting itself as a more respectful alternative to the app. Love our loathe Tinder no one can deny it has a reputation for being a less wholesome form of dating. Rather than being matched through similar interests or the calibre of one’s personality, superficially, it’s based on aesthetics in the form of the user’s best selection of Facebook pictures. Three young innovators are looking to change that, with their own matchmaking creation called Do Good Dating, which would see the mutually interested parties getting to know each other by undertaking community work together. And only three days after its launch, the site already has over 600 sign ups.

Beervana puts some media thinking into craft beer drinking

Media folk have long been renowned for their love of a tipple. And, if the StopPress Towers are any gauge, many of them seem to have a penchant for the tasty, interesting and expensive beers emanating from some of the country's numerous craft breweries. Every year, those two things are combined at Beervana's Media Brew competition, which sees adventurous beer-loving journalists from around the country paired up with a craft brewer to develop a special, one-off brew. And Dish's recently departed editor Victoria Wells and Hallertau Brewery took out the title with a NZ Wild Ale with Horopito. Plus: ANZ report suggests potential growth of 300 percent in the next decade for Kiwi craft beer companies as demand ramps up overseas.

Laugh in the face of mid-year alcohol abstinence, get Dish Drinks tickets

For a large number of people in this industry, the idea of Dry July is probably a punishment worse than death. So if you're in that category, then book yourself some tickets to Dish Drinks, where wine writer and bon vivant Yvonne Lorkin will take you on a journey beyond the well-known red wine varieties of Pinot Noir and Merlot to explore a world of fabulous lesser known red wines, such as Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo.

Magazine readership and circ numbers a mixed bag, industry aims to change the conversation

Once again, Nielsen's latest readership results and the ABC's circulation numbers don't make for particularly pleasant reading for the magazine sector, with all weeklies charting declines deemed significant on the same time last year, plenty of other significant declines and a rare few increases. And, perhaps not surprisingly, the MPA and the various publishers are hoping to change the conversation from a one-dimensional discussion about quantity, to a multi-dimensional discussion about the quality of engagement across a number of platforms.

Dish has a bun in the oven

From NZ Life & Leisure's Insider's Guides to NZ Rugby World's First XV, magazine publishers are creating more one-shots and brand extensions than they perhaps needed to in the past. And following on from the success of the 2011 special issue Everyday Dish, which has sold "heaps", according to Tangible publisher John Baker, the Dish team has sifted a few more ingredients and moulded it into Baking Dish.
