What is SocialPaywall.com?

We all love social media, social networking, facebooking, myspacing, etc. We build followers and friends though sharing links, videos, coupon codes, and other electronic content. Up until now, only the social networking websites see any kind on financial benefit from all of your hard work. SocialPaywall.com is an online service that allows you to create that same content, publish it through your social networks, and  make money by selling subscriptions.

How does it work?

With SocialPaywall.com you can save your “Premium” links, coupon codes, video podcasts behind an electronic toll booth or paywall. Then you share a brief description and link to that content on all off your favorite social networking websites. Your friends and followers click the link and are directed to a page allowing them to pay to see your premium content.

We’ve created a browser extension that allows your followers to view your Premium content directly in several of the most popular social websites. Namely twitter, facebook, youtube, flickr, and myspace. Once you have installed the extension you can subscribe & view content directly on the websites you frequent on a daily basis with no need to go to socialpaywall.com. This is the game changer. Imagine the ecommerce possibilities that are now open to you on several of the most popular websites on the Intenet today.
