Can Brands Become Money-Making Publishers Themselves?

Can Brands Become Money-Making Publishers Themselves? | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

**** Love the idea of brands as tent poles creating their own centrifugal force. Marty ****


"Major brands are slowly discovering that e-commerce may not be the only revenue stream the digital world has to offer them."

 

Andy Nibley wrote this guest post on Wired.com; he's the CEO of Yieldex.

 

His take is that major retailers have such a big trafic they're now starting to make money not just by selling products but by selling ads to other retailers orbrands: "So here’s a fresh example of the internet’s law of unintended consequences: Corporations who never had an interest in publishing may find that there is money to be made by sharing their customers with other brands."

 

The rationale being  that ad margins can be higher than retail margins.

 

What I feel this all means is that, in our noisy Web, catching the consumer attention becomes the greatest asset of all.

Semantic Web and its evolution

Semantic Web and its evolution | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

The idea of a ‘Semantic Web' involves computers being “capable of analysing all the data on the Web – the content, links, transactions between people and computers.”

 

This idea was laid down by one of the founding fathers of the Internet and worked on by researchers later.

 

Dr. James Hendler, an artificial intelligence researcher at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA, and one of the co-founders of the Semantic Web, is at the head of the ‘Tetherless World Constellation' which works to enhance the Web's reach beyond your PC or laptop and develop new technology to that expand the capabilities of the Web.

 

Recently Dr Hendler spoke to eWorld about the evolution of the Web, the Semantic Web and its evolution.

Drive-by Guest Bloggers More Damange Then Help

Drive-by Guest Bloggers More Damange Then Help | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

"Beware of drive-by guest bloggers offering to write free articles for your website. You may say, “But I’m not a writer. I can’t turn down free content!” You know that you need fresh content to attract buyers, and guest posts seem like an answer to all your prayers. Free? Even better. But when a writer appears out of nowhere, offers to write you unique posts – exclusively yours – in exchange for a backlink or two; remember that “there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” Your rich, overseas fourth cousin, seven times removed, did not just die and leave you a database overflowing with free PANDA food."

 

This is a long, but very good post on the dangers of accepting a guest post on your blog.
