Why Be A Contributor To TalkMarkets

Why have the leading financial companies partnered with TalkMarkets and why have nearly 1,500 highly respected contributors joined our ranks? Read on to learn more about TalkMarkets, the first and only contributor-owned site.

What Is TalkMarkets?
TalkMarkets is a digital media company that covers the diverse world of finance, featuring contributed content from leading experts in the field, while utilizing innovative social media tools for an interactive discussion of investing ideas and more. But with so many existing contributor platforms out there, why become a contributor to TM?

TalkMarkets is unlike any other contributor-based site.  We customize what our readers see based on their interests, preferences, and investment sophistication, ensuring a unique browsing experience that is quick, easy and personally relevant.

We also put a stronger emphasis on the social aspect of investing as we believe investing is both more informative and fun when done with friends, peers and mentors. So we've made interacting easy by incorporating the best social media tools and creating a few of our own. 

Additionally, we are the first ever "contributor-owned" site and have set aside a pool of equity for our founding contributors who can earn more for helping us grow (more on that below)!

What Are The Benefits Of Being A Contributor?
Like many contributor-based sites, we offer contributors sophisticated tools and great exposure:

We are partnered with major sites such as Bloomberg, Reuters, TipRanks, Seeking Alpha, Investopedia, Zacks, Investing.com, Benzinga, MarketWatch, CNBC, and many others for a combined reach of over 800 million monthly readers.

But we offer something that no other website does.  On other sites, contributors need to choose between selling the rights to their content or writing for free. TalkMarkets is a contributor-owned site which offers its contributors equity in the company. This has never been done before. We believe it is the only way to create a true partnership and to align our interests with those of our contributors and to ensure they personally benefit from our success.

We're also building innovative tools by which our contributors can interact with their followers, contacts, subscribers and each other.

So How Successful Is TM?
What we've done is started with a proven business model that works, but we are taking it to the next level with some unique points of differentiation, and doing it with a team that's done it before - our management team are seasoned executives from Seeking Alpha, Bloomberg, Reuters and Yahoo Finance.  And our success speaks for itself.  Since launching last year, TalkMarkets has grown to have nearly 1,500 contributors, hundreds of thousands of registered users, and millions of pageviews.

Our contributors include some of the top minds of the financial industry, thought leaders and more. 

How Do I Earn Equity In TalkMarkets?
There are numerous ways for contributors to earn equity besides submitting content. Contributors also earn equity for helping us grow.  We've built a number of great tools to help you promote TalkMarkets that we can track and will issue you equity for every pageview you send our way - even on content written by others. For example, let's say you read an article you liked on TalkMarkets and want to share it on Facebook or Twitter. If you post the link, we'll know and automatically issue the equity.

You can also earn equity for referring readers and other contributors. In fact, for every contributor you refer to us, you will earn an additional 10% on all the equity they accrue. The program is completely transparent so contributors can see how much equity they will earn for which activities, and how much equity they've earned in real time. (Note: Media Partners are not eligible for this program).

Does TalkMarkets Require Exclusivity?
We do not require exclusivity, though we do allocate a substantial equity premium for exclusive articles. Additionally, our exclusives are also promoted on our homepage and on several third-party sites such as Yahoo Finance, Bloomberg, Reuters, Investopedia, Benzinga, Investing.com, Seeking Alpha, CNBC, CNN and others.  

However, we define exclusive very differently from other sites. All we ask is that the content not appear on any other free site, in full, for 48 hours from the time of submission. Any delay in publication on our end does not impact the embargo period.

How Do I Apply To Be A Contributor?

It's simple: Just click on the "Apply to be a Contributor" link on the footer of each page of the site. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at contributors [@] talkmarkets.com.
