Ignition is a professional development site for network engineers and IT pros. It has courses, videos, podcasts, white papers, and other content designed to help you advance your IT career.
On Ignition, all the content is behind a subscriber wall, which includes free and paid tiers. All the content on the paid tier will be entirely independent of vendor sponsorship.
No. We'll run PacketPushers.net just like always: all the podcasts and blogs on Packetpushers.net will remain free and open to everyone without any kind of subscription or membership wall. And it’s going to stay that way, with our regular mix of independent and sponsored podcasts.
Because we’re experimenting with a new business model that doesn’t rely solely on sponsors. By going directly to subscribers, we can create independent material, such as courses and how-to videos, that we think will be relevant and helpful to our audience without having to find sponsors or manage sponsor expectations.
We also want to be able to pay industry experts to develop content for subscribers, and paid memberships will defray those costs.
Last but not least, by having a second revenue stream, we can continue to invest in Packet Pushers and grow the business.
Nope. We don’t sell or share your subscriber or membership details with anyone outside of Packet Pushers except as necessary for processing credit card transactions. We don’t sell or rent your email or address to vendors or anyone else.
