    Outlit is a social publishing network and the world’s first digital information marketplace of its kind. We built Outlit to earn for writers, bloggers, creators, and publishers of all sizes and shapes. We believe that restoring value to content and allowing new options for readers is the win-win needed to begin a new golden age of digital journalism. 

    Publishers of any size, from blogs to the largest newspapers in the magazines in the world, can easily and seamlessly integrate their stories on Outlit to be monetized. 

    There are two types of publisher content on Outlit:  

    • non-monetized titles, links, and clips to external stories via RSS and links added by our users
    • full stories from creators and publishers to be read without leaving Outlit that earn real money for the creator and publisher. 

    Creators and publishers that don’t monetize their content by partnering with Outlit are leaving money on the table. Full stop.  In an era of journalism layoffs and newsroom cuts, why would anyone do that? 

    Publishers can click here to contact Outlit and upgrade their account from a standard account to a prime source account. This is completely free to do, and enables established publishers to be certified and integrate full stories on Outlit to be viewed with monetization options. Publishers choose their own terms for allowing Outlit users to access full stories. We don’t set prices for publishers or their stories, dictate whether or not publishers should allow a free, ad-supported reading option for stories, etc. 

    Until this happens, external publisher “clip” content is available from simple RSS feeds added by our users and contain only the basics you’d find on other social networks and RSS readers, including things like a title, preview text, and maybe an image. This content is formatted and packaged so our users can discuss it, but the “clip” links externally and can be viewed in any web browser. This content is not monetized by Outlit and not used for any commercial purposes. 

    We wont sleep until we reach our goal of having every major news source and prominent voice using our platform to distribute ideas and news and earn the lion’s share of revenue generated by that content, so if you do represent publisher or news source, we urge you to contact us and get your prime source account set up and running so you can earn from Outlit.

    A few things you can do to make the most money from readers on Outlit:

    -Start writing - as we believe firmly, you can’t earn without contributing. You can’t hit a home run if you don’t get off the bench!

    -Set a paywall on your full stories. This seems obvious, but we also allow you to publish stories completely free of charge if you want. 

    -Price your content appropriately. If it's good work, you deserve to earn more, but a lower price may get you more monetized views. It's like finding the right price for anything else.

    -Share your stories on external site - Outlit of Outlit. Other social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and elsewhere will create a wider net for you, and may help you inbound traffic, but our writers also have done well sharing stories directly via email and other means.

    Bottom line is that the creators who earn the most on Outlit are using Outlit more - to discover and learn, engage and build a following, and to be their channel to distribute and monetize stories.
