No Spawning

I admit it. I’m a serial entrepreneur. I love building businesses and then handing them off to a seasoned management team so that I can do what I do best.

This week I’m making a shift in my thinking to halt spawning the success that we’ve had with EzineArticles into other projects so that this project can have an even higher level of concentration/focus.

If you’ve got any ideas as to how we could grow this project exponentially without dramatically expanding our labor expenses… I’m open to hear suggestions and your ideas. :-)

As I see it, EzineArticles.com is just touching the tip of the iceberg what with all the focus and demand for good content around. You are also uniquely positioned with a huge asset base of authors.

Here are a few ideas for growth.

EzineArticles.com can reach out to more countries with country specific content. Though internet is universal and a global medium certain local flavor and focus on country specific content offers a huge opportunity for growth and higher participation both from authors and visitors.

Grow into more specialized content related to industrial and business domains. Areas like HR, IT, Training, Global Business, Logistics are areas still uncluttered in terms of good content. This can increase business specific participation.

These could also offer scope for increasing advertising revenues with higher participation from industry and business.

Another revenue specific area could be to syndicate content to online and offline commercial paid publications and subscriber only sites. Revenues thus generated in selling content to such sites could be shared with the contributing authors offering incentive for generating more and higher quality content.

These are ideas in the rough and I am sure your experience could improvise and make them money spinners.

While not related to the subject I thought I must show my appreciation for the great site you have created. Your professional approach impresses me immensely. I was awestruck at getting some of my articles approved and published within 10 minutes of submission. How do you do it incidentally?

I hope my suggestions contribute to your vision of exponential growth.

I know I am responding to an old post, but you are probably still looking for ideas. What about setting up a place where authors provide e-reports that you license for businesses?
