Online Community Magazines allows anyone
with a desire and an ability to run a local business or online magazine
the opportunity to do so.
Our heart's desire is to see those who
would not otherwise have the opportunity to own
a business prosper and succeed with Online
Our preference is to work with people who have
integrity and a strong work ethic,
who are generous in spirit and in action,
who are capable, responsible,
and yet compassionate about their neighbors.
That is because our Online Community Magazines
are set up not only so those who run them prosper,
but hopefully people within their community
The premise is simple: You offer
inexpensive online advertising to local businesses
- They get their own homepage in the
magazine which they can change at will,
and which is connected to up to 5 categories
on the site.
- However, they can also write their
own magazine column, or create their own radio
or TV show (which they upload to the
- Every time they post a new article
or radio or TV show, they show up on the front
page of the Magazine, giving them increased
visibility - at no extra cost to them.
They can do all of this for only $10-$20/month,
or $100-$200/year - a price any and every
business, organization and individual can afford.
But there is more:
- You take 10% of your profits from
the magazine, and give it back to non-profit
organizations that participate in the
- You allow organizations to fundraise
with the magazine by referring new business
and keeping 25% commission for every
listing they sell.
- You give free columns, radio and TV
show hosting to educators and their students
for class projects and school organizations,
making learning more exciting for students.
- You give free columns to churches,
non-profit organizations and government offices
Businesses are excited to have such inexpensive
advertising, mixed with a new and creative
way to share their expertise, products and services.
Organizations are excited to share their
concerns and projects with the community.
School systems are excited to have a
partner that will host multi-media for
their students to encourage them in their studies
and make learning much more enjoyable.
Individuals who have something to say
or a talent to display are excited to
have a platform from which they can express themselves.
If this type of community giving gets
you excited too, then perhaps an Online
Community Magazine would be right for you. If
so, then keep on reading...
You cannot buy an Online Community Magazine
with your own money.
We refuse to take personal monies to
buy into this business. Why?
We only want to work with people who
will be successful at this business.
Therefore, in order to "buy in", you
must pre-sell $2000 worth of listings
in your community to qualify as an Owner. That
is the equivalent of 10 - 20 pre-paid
listings for either $100/year columns
or $200/year tv and radio shows. We provide
the marketing materials for you to pre-sell,
and afterward, additional training and tools to
Then we will know that you are a good
match for this business. And just as
importantly, you will feel confident
that you will prosper with an Online Community
Magazine. You will also have a good foundation
of content with which to start the Magazine.
The other reason we won't take your money
is because we want everyone, regardless
of financial situation, to have an opportunity
to own a Magazine. In particular, we want
to work with:
- the disabled,
- single moms or dads struggling to
make ends meet, and
- those who have experienced financial
crises due to external circumstances.
We are on a mission to do as much good
to as many people as possible, and we
want to help you help yourself.
Once you have pre-sold your listings...
We install your magazine on our dedicated
servers, ensuring that you have lightning
fast speed and sufficient storage and bandwidth
for all of the audio's and videos you will host.
Your monthly cost for hosting on our dedicated
server starts at $60/month. Later, as your site
grows, your cost for hosting will grow with it,
but by that time, you will have so much business,
the cost will still be nominal.
If you are comfortable
running the online administrative portion yourself
(which is very simple and meant to run
automatically for the most part), then you
will keep 93% of all of your gross profits,
and pay a 7% royalty fee for
- continual upgrades,
- marketing materials,
- access to Owner Forums to discuss issues and
tips for continued success, and
- technical support for you (though not for
The minimum monthly royalty fee is $100 a month.
This is called the Independent License.
If you are not comfortable
with computers, and don't have someone to administrate
the site for you, you can hire us to
run the entire online portion. This includes:
- handling all customer service for your clients
- entering all payment information
- running invoicing reports
- running commission reports
- reviewing initial listings for appropriateness
- continual upgrades
- marketing materials
- access to Owner Forums to discuss issues and
tips for continued success
You retain 70% of NET profits
and we retain royalty fees of 30%. Net profits
means gross sales minus up to 20% offline advertising
costs, referrals, and your hosting fees (starting
at $60). The minimum royalty fee is $250 a month.
This is called the Administrative License.
You can start out with one type of License and
change to another at a later time.
