London, UK. (PRWEB) November 14, 2011
Crowdsourced media site ViewsHound has today launched a Content Store, selling tried-and-tested articles for use on blogs, websites and newsletters. Articles are drawn from the site’s rapidly growing stable of authors, and all have been edited by ViewsHound. Exclusive and non-exclusive licenses are available, and prices start from just a few dollars per article. Photographs and cartoons will also be available within the next few weeks. See http://www.viewshound.com/store.
The ViewsHound Content Store is aimed at publishers and businesses who need to buy high quality content for their blogs, websites and newsletters. This is a fast-growing market, as more companies realize that providing valuable information to their customers as part of an ongoing conversation is an effective marketing strategy.
Authors selling their work via ViewsHound Content Store first submit their content to the main ViewsHound site at http://www.viewshound.com, where they can choose whether they wish to sell with an exclusive license, non-exclusive license, or both. Authors can also set their own price for their work. ViewsHound provides the technology, marketing and billing, and shares the revenue 50/50 with the author.
ViewsHound Editor in Chief, Ian Howlett, said, “We want to be the single best place for writers, photographers and cartoonists to publish and sell their work. The ViewsHound Content Store builds on our daily cash prizes and our advertising revenue sharing program, to provide further monetization opportunities for talented contributors.”
