Website content in the form of articles, blogs, images, and video is the most valuable product for e-commerce companies because it generates revenue without having to manufacture or ship a physical product. The best part for some of the most successful companies is that millions of website users produce content for free every day. Most of these users aren’t aware their content is generating revenue for the websites they are publishing and posting it on and even those that are aware really aren’t sure how it all works.
To keep it simple, web content generates revenue mainly from ads displayed alongside it. Although there are other ways it earns money such as donations, membership fees, or sales of the content itself, ad revenue is by far the easiest method because it doesn’t present the challenge of persuading users to buy anything or make a donation. Since most sites use third party automated ad programs, it doesn’t require selling ad space to sponsors. These sophisticated ad programs usually display ads pertaining to the content on the page or the individual user’s web history, making it likely that the users will see ads that appeal to them.
Most of the popular websites in just about every industry are designed to create as much content as possible for free and employ as few people as possible. Usually the content is created by its users, but many companies are not above using automated programs or outsourcing to companies in India to create fake content in order to keep the site populated with whatever content it supposedly provides. This results in poor quality content and people working for free. Neither of these results is good for the American economy or the online user experience.
The internet is saturated with so called encyclopedias and informational sites that provide answers to our questions, but in reality they are no more reliable than asking a stranger on the street. One of our most popular sources of information calls itself an encyclopedia while collecting tens of millions of dollars a year in donations to provide us with a largely unregulated collection of unreliable, erroneous, and often poorly written articles written for free by “anyone with an internet connection”. If that’s not bad enough, they actually pride themselves on employing as few people as possible. This isn’t only irresponsible, it’s an outrage.
Many of the other sites that provide answers to the questions we have are also using internet users to provide free content. A question is posted and then users provide answers to the question. The problem with this is that there is no verification of who is providing the answer or what their source of information is, which is almost every time taken from that “encyclopedia” I previously mentioned. They usually don’t even bother to write the information in their own words, they just copy it from the “encyclopedia” page and paste it to the website. This creates the illusion that there is a consensus among independent sources about the information in question, when in fact it all came from the same source.
The social media sites use automated ad programs to display ads relevant to the content that the users post and express interest in. We aren’t calling this a scam, but are simply pointing out that this content is valuable and generates revenue for these site while most of the users are absolutely oblivious to what is going on.
People working for free, fake and outdated content designed to deceive people, and unreliable information from unverified sources is unacceptable for our country, and for any country for that matter. We believe it’s time for a content revolution.
Our plan is to create income and career opportunities for tens of thousands of Americans while improving the online experience for millions of others through providing useful online content. To achieve this goal we are providing Americans with premium e-commerce technology to capitalize on THEIR content without requiring them to learn web design or risk their own money. Almost any interest, knowledge, or area of expertise has monetary value when published online.
We are not pretending to be nonprofit or some kind of charitable organization. We are simply saying that we can all benefit from the inexhaustible resource of online content. We know we can profit, our clients can profit, and the American people can profit while providing a quality product based on American integrity and ingenuity. There is no reason we can’t have quality content in the Information Age that serves to generate revenue for the best interests of the American people and beyond.
