Newsgrape Will Change EVERYTHING You Know About Publishing!

  • What if you could have gotten in on the ground floor of YouTube?
  • What if I were to give you that chance right this very moment?

This will change EVERYTHING!

We all know the impact that blogs have had on traditional media. Newspapers are obsolete, and magazines are nearly obsolete. Any newspaper or magazine that hasn’t transitioned to offering a blog or some other form of digital media cannot be around much longer… if they still are even.

Newsgrape is revolutionizing the way you blog though! Found at is an amazing new web platform that allows publishers to start their own magazine for free, and collaborate with other authors. Take a quick look at the video below before I tell you more…

What has my attention so much is the way that publishers can earn money on Newsgrape. As a matter of fact, it is the only reason why it caught my attention so much and made me want to write this article! (By the way… NOBODY paid me to write this)

Still in development is their amazing new revenue system that is modeled around Google Adwords. But let me ask you this… Does Adwords pay you anything? Nope. Does Adsense pay you anything adequate? Nope! What if Google decided to pay you HALF of what they earned? You would probably piss yourself right?

Well guess what! Newsgrape gives YOU, the publisher 60% of all revenues through their system generated from your articles and profile! This beats the mere pennies that you would earn through Adsense by a landslide!

How Does Newsgrape Work?

Here’s the cool thing. Newsgrape is more than just a platform for publishing articles. It is heavily focused on the reader by providing an innovative and amazing system which allows you to actually create your own collection of materials and effectively build your own actual magazine that is regularly updated!

It is my honor to actually break this story, and introduce you to a platform that I plan on calling my home. I am one of the first users with a pre-beta access key which allows me to gain access as soon as January. Then approximately two months later, the system will be opened to the public under beta release.

The Newsgrape team is working on funding additional development and server power via Kickstarter. YOU have the opportunity to get a pre-beta access key right this very second! Newsgrape has 42 more days to raise a goal of $12,500 before pre-beta, and with a donation of $5 or more, you can gain access! However, if you donate more, then pre-beta might get here even faster! To get your access key, stop by Kickstarter and make a donation.

If you are seriously passing this up, you will want to kick yourself soon after! Think of Newsgrape like a large mall. You can pick and choose the content that you read. How crazy is that? Do you know how much is sucks to browse the internet looking for articles that aren’t garbage? I find so many blogs that have the same crap posted over and over, and a lot of it is truly sub-par with bad writing. Newsgrape‘s system weeds out the bad articles, and only pushes forth the quality content that you want to read.

Meet The Team

Leo, Gabor, FelixLeo, Gabor, and Felix are behind the Newsgrape platform. Leo and Felix are Co-Founders and Co-CEOs. Gabor is the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and programmer.

From their bio:

The origin of Newsgrape came during the summer of 2009 when they founded an online magazine out of sheer creativity (and boredom, who knows?).

With his intuition for interesting topics, Leo became the Editor in Chief of the team, which had reached over a dozen co-writers by then. Felix, on the other hand, was more interested in marketing and how to reach a broader audience, from a publishers point of view.

One late evening, during the cold winter months, they sat down with their programmer, Gabor, and thought about how to bring the idea of online magazines to a new level to make it more efficient.

So from forming a community for a magazine – like they did with online castings to find talented writers – they moved on to creating a community with its own articles and magazines from publishers and writers for readers – in a mutually beneficial way.

    Hi Patricia, definitely a company you want to invest in for their start-up funding. Especially for a small niche, this could be a huge outlet for new readers.

  7. Brandon – Newsgrape definitely looks like an attractive web platform since you can get started for free and keep 60% of all revenue your article generates. This is definitely unique and I’m sure will be a huge hit among people who love to write and read. Thanks for bringing this to my attention and I will donate my $5 to gain access in January, and see if this is something I will be interested in using.

    Excellent Kerry. Just be sure to do so before all the slots are taken. They are being snatched up since I posted this, and I have no doubt they will go even faster soon. I will not only be using it as a writer, but definitely something big for me as a reader. It brings the best of the best in the article world to one place so I don’t have to spend days at a time digging around Google and other places.

    No problem Hunter. This fell into my lap, and it’s one of the most exciting new platforms to come around since Facebook. I believe this will be huge, and anyone not understanding that now will wish they had later on.

    You’re right Samuel. It is a great idea, and a well planned out one that took a year approximately to develop. The great thing is that it is still under development and they are very open to feedback about the service. This means a transparent company that I am not only impressed with, but one I plan on helping and working with for years to come.

    I know right? The video is very “tv commercial” but extended. I will be posting about this after I am in the pre-beta testing area. Then again when it’s about to launch for public beta access.

  15. Great idea and if it is followed by a good plan and researches it can bring us to an improvement.

    Thanks Brandon for the idea and the video.

  24. It is good to have another platform for publishers.
    Might be good to try this one in the near future.

  25. Might take a closer look but are you aware there a several existing services who split revenue such as Squidoo, Hubpages and Helium amongst others?

    Also not sure I understand the comment on Adsense not being ‘adequate’ – Google gives you 68% of revenue from those ads so a pretty decent share and a good moneyspinner if you know how to use it well…

    Google does not tell you how much the advertiser paid for the ad in the first place. So saying that they pay 68% of the revenue is not necessary something I would believe. As a matter of fact, I have optimized and ranked sites that used high paying keywords (as in $70 per click in some cases) but they only took in maybe 5 cents a click. You also cannot trust Google advertising because much of it ends up on spammy sites where the owners click on their own ads, and get others to for them. With Newsgrape, they give you 75% (based on a calculation correction), and it’s targeted to getting traffic to the quality articles only. It’s not like MFA sites. These are magazines with genuine articles that people opt to see in the first place.
