A few weeks ago I gave up on following all 400+ of my blog feeds and cut it down to 25. Yours is on my list don’t worry;) In spirit of the Pareto Rule I feel that I get about 80% of the daily information I want from just reading these sites. Am I missing cool new sites or crazy information a day or two behind everyone else? Yes. Does it matter that much? Not especially. The really good stuff generally boils up to the top.
I know there are great articles and sites that I should be reading but I don’t. It is like that saying “if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it does it really make a sound?” If a great post gets unnoticed does it really make an impact? Okay, maybe not entirely true but I know there are some cool things I should be reading today that I am not, so I have a solution for that.
Cost per Relevancy.
What does that mean? It means that on my feed reader I want to see sponsored results of relevant articles that people pay for. How does it work?
1- Someone has a great post they want to share with people.
2- They pay some amount $.10-$.25 for every relevant person that clicks on that feed.
3- The post gets shown in feed readers to people who are subscribed to blogs that are relevant to the article.
4- The sponsored post shows up and if a person clicks then everyone wins.
I get to see a cool article from someone who may not be a Techcrunch. The person pays a very small amount for a very relevant audience. The feed reader people are making bling bling. This just seems like a no brainer and I am surprised no one has done this yet.
I am not sure if I should give this business idea out but as always if you do it just buy me a burrito. Or give me some money=)
