Social media today seems to be a race to the bottom. Driven by a desire for clicks and likes, participants engage in exaggeration and even sometimes misinformation. The cause? The common advertising revenue model. In a click-based model, where content is monetized so gaining eyes, often results in subpar discussions as the visitor is continuously hit by ads and pop-ups. This model is failing.
WeGather.online provides a new model where quality and reputation matter, and content creators earn revenue from their readers and visitors. WeGather is structured to represent validated experts and authoritative personalities to drive topics and discussions. Time limits on forums also contribute to current information and meaningful interaction.
WeGather’s revenue model offers an environment that is more conducive to honest content. Also, by removing advertisers from the model, content creators and experts have more freedom to express the things they are passionate about.
The internet has generally de-monitized expertise as it is structured with the intention to make all information and communication free. This originally seemed to be good in principle, but it has become clear that it causes many problems as it disincentivizes quality.
“One of the early visionaries of the internet, Jaron Lanier, stated he believes making information free via the ad-revenue model creates such perverse incentives that it may threaten the survival of our species,” said David Price, founder and CEO of WeGather.online. “Whether or not this is hyperbole, the consequences of offering our knowledge and information for free disenfranchises the vast majority of people in our industrialized economies. Everyone has valuable knowledge and information. It’s our vision to create a market for this that all may benefit from.”
Consistent donations from thousands of members can add up to far exceed ad based platforms. WeGather’s unique revenue structure provides content creators the chance to earn via:
- Tips and donations;
- Paid group discussions;
- Paid subscriptions;
- Paid private consultations.
