Nuus.com is a new site that gets its news from its user base. User can submit stories they find on the web to Nuus.com to share with other users. Now, you might be thinking this sounds a lot like Digg.com. However, there are several differences. The first is there’s no voting system. Stories are published based on what Nuus.com editors think. If they like your submission, it gets published. If they don’t like it, your story will never see the light of day.
Make $1 Per Story
Here’s the neat part. If your story gets published, you get a $1USD sent to your PayPal account. There’s no limit on the number of stories you can submit. The creators of the site gave the following key points:
- It’s similar to digg, except that people are PAID if their news is pubblished on our main page.
- It a little revolution for the world of news.
- We want to give the people the opportunity to earn money, just for sharing their passions.
- It’s a great opportunity for people that like to blog about something, but they don’t have time to keep up with an entire blog on a daily basis.
- It’s a way to get your content to a large audience without paying for the traffic.
Nuus.com is a brand new site and all the stories so far has been submitted by the in house editorial team. They are hoping to change that however as more and more people discover the site and submit stories. The end goal is to be a big news site that rewards both the site owner and the site users.
The concept is a neat one and I think it can take off if the site’s built in viral nature starts to take hold. However, before it can do that I think Nuus.com needs to tidy up the site a bit. For one thing, the about page is still in its default “This is an example of a WordPress page” mode and the contact page doesn’t appear to be in English. Stuff like this really takes away from the professionalism of the site.
Those two nick picks aside, I do like the concept of Nuus.com. Rewarding users for content isn’t new but Nuus.com has done it in a very easy to use fashion and that’s the key. The question now is will users submit their story for the promise of a dollar? Would you?
