It will aggregate and publish on its unique platform and mobile apps content produced by its own editorial staff, INDIE NEWS, and by its PARTNERS, selected from among the best independent media start-ups.
INDIE will be the core of the new independent digital journalism. For accomplishing it, the project has been divided in four branches. Here they are:
INDIE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO BE A DIGITAL PUB FOR INDEPENDENT NEWS OUTLETS PRODUCING HIGH QUALITY CONTENT
INDIE’s own editorial staff is at the heart of the project. These journalists will produce the text, audio, photo, video, graphics and other features, and will revise, verify and edit the work of partner news organizations.
INDIE PRESS AGENCY
INDIE AGENCY will be the syndication service charged with selling other media outlets the reproduction rights of INDIE and INDIE PARTNERS content. The recent cuts to editorial staff at mainstream newspapers have left significant gaps in coverage of foreign news. These information gaps represent an opportunity and source of potential funding for INDIE and INDIE PARTNERS once they are operating as a unified agency with journalists throughout the world.
A network of existing, successful, high-quality independent publishers that would share content with INDIE. This commitment would be voluntary, and the content would respect INDIE standards of reliability, independence, and business ethics. Partner publishers would be remunerated for their contributions according to criteria set out in the business plan.
If INDIE is the journalistic center of the project, INDIE DATA is the project’s intelligence unit. Using the plethora of data produced by INDIE journalists and readers, INDIE DATA’s mission will be to aggregate, structure and interpret information about political, economic, social, and and other tendencies. INDIE DATA will carry out web analysis, media support, CRM, and back office support, as well as other services that will allow our clients to offer a better performance in the digital environment.
