What is InfoBarrel?
InfoBarrel is a community of writers who spend their time creating amazing content geared towards helping readers either educate themselves or solve a problem. InfoBarrel is built in a manner that we reward our writers for creating this amazing content. Writers can choose to either donate their earnings to charity, or build a passive income stream through a number of advertising channels.
Essentially InfoBarrel shares the potential revenue generated by an authors content directly with the author. We have created a venue for writers, media producers and other content developers to publish their material and create an extra revenue source. Not only do we want to help content producers, but we also want to attract visitors from all around the world with information that provides value to their daily lives. Whether the value is created through a simple how-to tie a tie article, a salad recipe or early Roman history, it is our goal to be your information destination.
