In its first year after the war, De Telegraaf only had 40,000 subscribers. The sisters were close to bankruptcy, but a group of financiers bought the paper for 480,000 guilders. They replaced the previous editor in chief, A.J. Van der Zande, with J.M. Goedemans, who took an anti-communist stance. The newspaper continued its sensationalist style, but shifted its focus to crime and human interest stories.
The company focused on simplifying its product offering. Before the change, it had more than 800 products to offer. Moreover, short-term subscriptions did not result in long-term relationships. Trial subscriptions are very costly to an organization. Therefore, the company stopped offering them, and shifted to long-term subscriptions. The change in strategy helped the company grow at 66% per year. It has maintained its leadership position despite the rocky start to its business.
The change in management
The change in management also brought new energy and a renewed focus on its mission. While the paper was struggling to make money, the previous management had put a lot of faith in video and old systems. Employee morale was also low, due to the takeover battle. A new CEO, Xavier Van Leeuwe, was hired in October 2017 as Director Consumers. He previously worked for the NRC, a part of the Mediahuis group. His focus was on building long-term relationships with readers, and he has co-authored a management book on the subject.
