We feel your pain…
Information Overload: It’s Real, It’s Here, and It’s aTime-Suck
Remember the Wild West era of the web — when you stumbled on someone’s blog via word of mouth. YouTube was just beginning to buzz, and you had long, uninterrupted stretches of thought? Uninterrupted thought. Think of it. Reading was primarily still analog. Your writing was analog. Journalism was analog.That era wasn’t so long ago, but today’s technological and digital landscape is faster, more visual, and driven by algorithms and social and cultural influencers more than ever before. Couple that with massive layoffs at newspapers. Stodgy stiffs who don’t even read freely offer their opinions—”Get a job with earning potential.” Right. It’s enough to drive a professional writer nuts. You don’t want to sell out and be stuck hawking someone else’s wares. You became a journalist because you care about ideas. And pen to paper—or fingers to keys—you shall write! Do or die.
There are other digital platforms out there to support your journalism, and we’re not here to convince you to jump ship. Writers —at least in our own minds— are outsiders. Observers above the fray. It takes time for your ideas to ferment. A goal — like a book — that is not written down, is just a wish. You are not a writer unless you are writing. As Oscar Wilde said,
“It is only by not paying one’s bills that one can hope to live in the memory of the commercial classes.”
Pindify is a salve for some of your specific pain points as a journalist. As a writer, we realize how many hours, how much study, how much passion was poured into your stories. Your research. Did anyone else notice? Well, we did. That’s why we created Pindify. Pindify is simple—but deliberately repurposed to fill a needed gap in the market of digital arts and media. To support journalists like yourself in an environment where you can actually monetize your newsworthy content.
You have nothing to lose. Take your existing content — find old draft ideas sitting in your cloud storage, blow off the digital dust — and share your stories with the world. Who knows, you may find yourself up in the limelight before you know it. The goal of Pindify is simple: get people who support your work to pay you directly. No ads and no giant marketing budgets spent on overhead. That means more revenue that is distributed directly to our creative Providers—writers like yourself.
Reasons to Believe
Some of the features that help professional writers and bloggers gain exposure include:
An active social media team which is plugged in to current trends and staffed by real people. You don’t have to post awkward cat photos to your Instagram. Our guides will help you up your social game.
Free and paid accounts. You get what you pay for, and for your followers to access your content, you’ll need to become a Basic member. While you’re building your portfolio, you can give it a test run.
Maybe you’re up against writer’s block. Pindify can be an ideal testing ground for working through those rough-as-pumice first drafts, to curate a playlist that captures the #mood you want to set on that screenplay you’re busting out in a coffee shop. And a marketplace to interact with other artists and writers like you.
Pindify allows for the immediate opportunity to gain revenue. Whether you’re a freelancer, college student, or long-established journalist, moving early into the ad-free multimedia space not only puts you at the bleeding edge, it means there are growth opportunities for our earliest and most popular users.
