Coined by internet entrepreneur, Pat, in a recent post I read by a gentleman named "John" on a frequently visited blog of a similar nature, the very title of this article has come to represent what many online users have come to realize. While in direct relation to his unfortunate loss of high-earning articles in yet another massive, site-wide, article sweep on eHow, this statement couldn't be any more true when it comes to just about any venture, whether online or offline.
Even though it could be very possible to curtail this article towards a complete bash of the general atmosphere of user dissatisfaction and disgruntlement that eHow has recently conditioned, the lessons of others can very well serve the aspiring online entrepreneur to passionately pursue many different income streams. While in the field of online freelance writing, I would like to deem Info Barrel as one of my main 'hubs' for interaction and contribution, in my soon-to-be-released eBook, I have managed to demonstrate how I have managed to consolidate and manage of variety of 'working parts' when it comes to utilizing similar online website platforms interchangeably.
Rather than tout Info Barrel as my only trusted revenue source online, it true power, as I mention above, can be found when it is used in conjunction with other website platforms. From Squidoo, to Bukisa, Xomba, and yes, even eHow, these other platforms can be utilized in order to drive traffic ultimately to your Info Barrel articles. Also, in my Info Barrel eBook, I have gone to great lengths to compare and contrast these similar online venues, and why exactly Info Barrel's 75%-90% Google adsense revenue share (on all submitted articles) is far superior to just about any other website platform's payout and distribution scheme.
It is not difficult, at all, to make a case for Info Barrel.
Where massive websites, like eHow, lack in customer service, and transparency about earnings potential and article submission guidelines, Info Barrel does a great job of conveying expectations to its users. Even still, while I would place more emphasis on Info Barrel, it is still only one piece of a giant puzzle of online revenue diversification. With such generous adsense revenue payouts, Info Barrel's popularity has, more recently, begun to assume a near vertical graphical representation that parallels such internet greats like Facebook and MySpace.
To say that Info Barrel could very possibly compete with some of the biggest names in the article submission, revenue sharing, industry could be an understatement, to say the least. In fact, if Info Barrel's firm adherence to the most fundamental of business principles is any indicator, it could very well give these 'similar' and 'competing' website platforms a run for their money. Where they fail, and manage to neglect basic user concerns, Info Barrel has really done a fine job at displaying and fostering an awesome reciprocal relationship between both owners and users.
It is this clarity of purpose and transparency that could very possibly lead Info Barrel to being one of the biggest, most prominent, names in an ever expanding industry. Where cutthroat competition lingers, the very framework of Info Barrel's website platform, in my honest opinion, is echelons above the offerings of some of the leading players in the online article submission, revenue sharing, industry. Truth be told, Info Barrel has become somewhat of a safe haven, or refuge, for members, of similar website platforms, who have become unfortunate victims of the unclear guidelines and sub-par user transparency, that the eHow website has become all to familiar with.
