We are very please to have received such a great response to the re-launch of our site
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2007
HowToDoThings.com, one of the fastest growing 'how to' sites, today announced the re-launch of their site after receiving an extremely enthusiastic response to their public beta. HowToDoThings.com also introduced a new compensation model that will pay writers 50 percent of the ad revenue generated from their articles.
With a more intuitive user interface and fast approval of submitted articles, HowToDoThings.com is now delivering a fresh approach for users to experience 'how-to' articles online. Having built the new site with their community in mind, HowToDoThings.com is making the writers a key part of the evolution of the site and keeping their interests top of mind. A new revenue model provides contributors with a greater revenue share than any other 'how-to' site currently on the web.
"We are very please to have received such a great response to the re-launch of our site," said Erik Budde, General Manager, HowToDoThings.com. "By expanding the site organically and with the needs of our community in mind, we've been able to sustain healthy growth by maintaining enough editors to keep up with the supply and demand of content. This allows articles of the highest quality to continue flowing on a daily basis, ensuring our contributors get their articles posted quickly and visitors to the site are always greeted with fresh material."
HowToDoThings.com users, community members, and article contributors are applauding the latest site design and new compensation model. They are finding success in key areas including:
---> Quick turnaround: While many sites take weeks and months to post articles, HowToDoThings.com posts articles in days, if not hours, ensuring maximum exposure and revenue opportunities for contributed content.
---> Bylines/Bios Exposure and Greater Revenue: In comparison to other sites that pay for content, HowToDoThings.com offers the highest revenue share--50 percent of Google AdSense Revenue--and continues to allow contributors to promote their websites, online businesses, forums, and blogs through their bylines, which are attached to more in-depth bio pages.
---> High Quality Articles: HowToDoThings.com seeks out experts on topics. The writers on HowToDoThings.com are not only contributors, they are well established in the areas that they are writing about.
"The new site is very professionally done and runs well," said Susan Biddy, community member of HowToDoThings.com. "The new design is clean and easy to read. And while the ads are a source of revenue for contributors, they are not distracting to the page, which I think is a huge turn off for most visitors. Best of all, anytime I have ever needed a correction or had a question, someone at HowToDoThings.com has responded immediately."
"HowToDoThings.com continues to foster the highest quality content with their newly launched site," said Elizabeth Grace, community member of HowToDoThings.com. "The community is teeming with writers who have proven, first-hand, knowledge of the topics that they cover. Some other sites simply hire writers who research the subject matter and then write articles. Unfortunately, many of these articles are simply re-writes of existing Internet articles, not all of which are based on fact or filled with useful, quality information."
Unlike other 'how-to' web sites written by staff writers, HowToDoThings.com contributors are hobbyists, professionals, and experts in their given fields, providing visitors to the site with real world experiences. Currently the site offers more than 3,500 'how-to' articles.
With nearly 15 unique visitors every minute, HowToDoThings.com is fast becoming a top destination for people looking for the answers to their questions. This growth has been fueled by the strong relationship the site has built with its contributors and audience. The driving force of this is the clear guidelines and easy contribution process, allowing well-qualified contributors to earn exposure and money on topics they are most passionate about.
