Don’t just publish the news. Sell it.
Mazama is building the future of local news. The first step: A website and CMS designed to give readers a digital experience they will love — and pay for.
Make more money
A CMS designed specifically to sell digital subscriptions
We’ve created automated marketing technology that guides your readers to pay for a digital subscription. At every turn, we remind them of the value you provide. We’ll craft you a custom digital marketing plan and help you kick off a subscription campaign to grow this new, sustainable revenue stream.
Save staff time
Free up your staff to pursue the journalism readers pay for.
Our CMS/website is dead simple. Your staff will spend less time posting stories, organizing homepages, managing social, and sending newsletters. Our built-in payment technology will handle subscription and ad payments and cancellations, freeing up your back-office staff.

Our simple design is inspired by social media feeds. No more pop ups, autoplaying videos, or other distractions from the content. No complicated navigating or digging to find the stories of the day. Becoming a subscriber is a breezy three-step process, too.
