Newspack adds ability to run multiple online news sites from single dashboard

Mosaic of news websites connected through Federated Sites feature

Bringing an innovation to managed CMS services for small and medium-sized newsrooms, Newspack now provides news operations with the functionality to control more than one news outlet from a unified control center.  

Newspack’s approach to such federated sites brings flexibility in publishing, and efficiency in both audience development and revenue generation.

The first phase of Newspack Federated Sites features:

  • A streamlined workflow to syndicate content. Syndicated content can stay synchronized with the original, or copied and rewritten to localize. Control can be set so each site can syndicate to others, or a centralized newsroom can publish networkwide or site by site.
  • Individualized subscription, membership and receipt messages for each site, with subscribers, orders and payment information kept in a single dashboard.
  • One-click login to any site for staffers, with two-factor authentication available for extra security.
  • One login for readers and subscribers for all sites, or one-time passcode to visit other sites on the network.
  • Targeted calls to action by site.
  • Targeted advertising by site.
  • Distinct newsletters and signup forms by site while using one email service provider account.
  • Webhooks for piping data to a central customer relationship management system.

Future phases of Newspack Federated Sites will be developed in concert with publishers.
