One year after the spin-off, 7 ways Time Inc. is now investing in digital

A year after the spin-off from its parent company Time Warner, the print outlook has dimmed for Time Inc., but it’s making investments in digital. New digital-only titles have been launched, such as home decor site The Snug and beauty site Mimi, and it’s introducing paywalls to existing titles like Entertainment Weekly. But in efforts to make itself profitable, Time Inc. has also relentlessly cut costs, with 12 Sports Illustrated and InStyle staffers being laid off in January alone. By investing in technology and acquiring smaller tech companies, Time Inc. is able to speed up the process by bringing its product development in-house.
