Confirm Your Business Journal Subscription with My Account

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Business Journal is asking our audience to manage their subscriptions online. This includes selecting from five email newsletters, managing subscriptions to receive premium content and downloading the forthcoming mobile app.

All of the aforementioned services require registration using an email address.

It’s important to understand that a good portion of content posted at requires NO registration and is free and open to all visitors. This content is posted under the Online Exclusives and Workforce Development sections of the website and includes the DailyBuzz, 3 Minutes With and After Hours videos, Brain Gain features, Business Strategies Video Network and webinars.

The purpose of this post is to confirm users are at the appropriate subscription level via the My Account page. CLICK HERE to check your current subscription level in the Account Overview, as well as update your email preferences in the Edit Profile section.

To make any changes, please click on ‘Subscribe’ in the upper right corner of the website. Your current subscription level will be highlighted in green.

By July 28, all registered users will be asked to choose from one of three subscription levels to access award-winning premium content at 

The three levels are as follows:

A Basic subscription entitles registered users to five premium posts and articles per month.

The Digital Only level provides unlimited digital access to ALL published content for $5/month. This includes the eEdition of The Business Journal’s award-winning publication.

The Print + Digital level provides unlimited digital access to ALL content, plus a print edition in your mailbox for $42/year.

Special designations are earned by The Business Journal’s Marketing VIPs – those with an active advertising and sponsorship program with the company. If you’re one of our Marketing VIPs, we sincerely appreciate your support. To learn more about this designation, contact our sales and marketing department.

What this means

This means that registered users at the Basic level will only have access to five premium articles per month, plus all content published in the Online Exclusives and Workforce Development areas.

Registered users who select one of the paid subscriptions – Digital Only or Print + Digital – will have unlimited access to all premium content.

Those who do the math will notice that the Print + Digital plan is actually less expensive than the Digital Only.

“Call it an incentive,” says Jeff Leo Herrmann, CEO of the Youngstown Publishing Co. “We’re proud of the work that goes into each print publication and we want our readers to share in the pride of receiving their own copy of a locally produced business newspaper published by a local award-winning journalism team.”

During the week of July 19, 2021, Herrmann will be hosting a daily Live Lunch & Learn Subscription Q&A at noon to ensure everyone’s questions are answered. The events will be streamed to our Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube pages.
