Five on Friday: Competition, Coronavirus and Customer Retention

Featuring Walmart, Rent the Runway, NYT and Seattle magazine

This week Super Tuesday, tornadoes and the coronavirus dominated headlines, all of which impacted subscriptions in some way, whether through news coverage or an impact on news advertising. In Five on Friday, we share The New York Times' belief that panic and uncertainty about the coronavirus will impact its digital ad sales. We've also got features on Walmart's bid to compete with Amazon Prime with its own delivery service, Rent the Runway's new "2 Swap" subscription tier, customer retention strategies to try now, and top subscription jobs.
