Goldhat: A New Way to Monetize Your Web Content

Screenshot of the Front Page--Click to Enlarge

As some of you know, I’ve been working full-time on a web application that I believe could help many more people make money online. Although I had planned not to reveal the concept of the website until it was launched, in order to be able to do business with online merchant account providers I had to explain the whole application concept to quite a few complete strangers.  Since I’ve already told some people about it, I might as well tell everyone.

Creating Goldhat has been an incredible education for me. When I started blogging I tried to think of ways to monetize my site.  Although there are a ridiculous amount of blog articles out there that list the ways one could make money off a blog, none of them seemed particularly appealing or practical to me. Indeed, the fact that only 1% of bloggers make a reasonable living from blogging seemed proof enough that there had to be a better way.

I believe Goldhat is that better way. From the very day I had the idea for Goldhat, I’ve been working on it full-time in the effort to make it a reality.

Finally, after 7 months of hard work, I am happy to be able to present you with this video demonstration of the website:

Although up until this point I have done most of the work myself, I have come to the realization that I’ll need all the help I can get when the site goes live. If after watching the video you believe Goldhat has the potential to help artists, creative people, and bloggers make more money doing what they love, please pass the link on to anyone you know who may be interested in getting involved with the project either as an investor or business partner.

With your help, we can change the way people make money on the internet.
