Open-source tools for increasing your reader revenue
We developed a set of open-source tools to help publishers understand and monetize their audience better, market their content and sell their services. We’ve tested the software on our website, the websites of our two partners, and released it as an open-source, allowing any other publisher to use it for free and contribute with their own improvements.
A/B testing for publishers
