I am about to let a cat out of the bag…if you like surprises don’t read further.
Still here? Ok…
Argus isn’t just an upgrade to PayPerPost.com. It is a completely new concept that is radically different approach than our current model. So radical in fact that the name PayPerPost fails to accurately portray what this new offering represents.
Sure, sponsored posts will be part of this new offering, but Argus is so much more than sponsored posts. Advertisers and Bloggers will interact in a whole new way in Argus. Heck, Bloggers can be Advertisers and vice versa under the same account. The tools we will provide for buzz building, traffic generation, ranking, social interaction, transparency, disclosure and analysis of campaigns will be unprecedented. Put simply you won’t recognize this system when we launch it.
The structure of the new marketplace will be completely foreign to all current PayPerPost users. The rules are changing and you will have to make some changes in your behavior to maximize the value the platform can provide you. Some of you will like it, some of you won’t… either way it will be your decision to make.
For these reasons we have decided to launch Argus under a new name and new domain. We have spent many cycles tossing around names, searching for available domains, ripping concepts apart and have finally narrowed the list down to 4 possibilities. Now it’s time for you, our community, to step in and help us make the final decision. Here are the choices:
We want you to tell us which name you like most and why. Write a post on your blog and put a link in the comment stream here or just leave a comment (with a way to contact you). I want you to be as open as possible. If you think one or all of them suck let us know.
I am going to pick my personal favorite post or comment and send you a new iPod Nano as a thank you for your time and effort.
