- 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 http://www.newsgrape.com 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, 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:
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.
