theskimm facts and statistics

Here are a few of the most interesting theSkimm statistics I was able to dig up. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.

theskimm facts and statisticsPlease note that some of these theSkimm stats are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.

What is theSkimm?

theSkimm is a membership company. We make it easier to live a smarter life by integrating in the routines of our target audience — female millennials. We started as a newsletter, The Daily Skimm, breaking down the most important news you need to know to start your day. We launched theSkimm App, a subscription product that integrates future events in culture, politics, tech, and more by integrating directly into your calendar. We’ve expanded into video and audio breaking down key topics, bringing you interviews with the people you need to know, and making you smarter throughout your day on everything from tax policies to how to fold a fitted sheet. All delivered through the routines that make up your life. theSkimm was founded in 2012 by two former news producers who launched it from their couch. (source)
