New York – Jerrick Media has launched Vocal, a platform for community-led content, SEO and monetisation.

  • The platform has six community verticals, covering science and gaming to work life and wellbeing
  • Content-creators are paid depending on page views and performance

Set up to connect thoughtful and original articles with the niche communities interested in them, Vocal is a content-distribution platform, contributor community and monetisation opportunity.

The platform was launched with six verticals – Omni for science and technology; Geeks for games, comics and film; Longevity for health; Journal for work; Filthy for sex and sexuality; and Potent for cannabis culture.

Content-creators are paid for what they produce. After creating and submitting a post to the appropriate community, moderators assess the content for relevance and quality. If approved, the piece is published and tracked, and monetised based on its performance.

‘We have created a simple way for people to get their voices heard in the overcrowded noise of the internet that goes hand in hand with an effective monetisation strategy,’ said Rick Schwartz, founder of Jerrick Media, in a press release. ‘Vocal combines the ease of Facebook, scope of Reddit and commerce of Amazon, all into one rich eco-system, optimised for content and commerce.’

The Big Picture

Content-creators are being paid to produce niche content for an audience of their choice in a space where voices are heard and communities are established. See how this was applied to television in our microtrend Community TV.
