“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” Woodrow Wilson
Wilson’s acknowledgement is especially exciting for the times with Newsie’s launch. Job losses and the reinvention of income opportunities in serving communities is a chance to earn while doing what you love. Newsie is ideal for those who’ve had ties in the community and are familiar with social media best practices.
A local Newsie is an affiliate who licenses the exclusive commercial rights to the Newsie platform within a designated territory. A Newsie territory is a municipality, a geographic area within a municipality or multiple municipalities. Territories will vary in population size, density, and economic demographics making each territory a unique commercial opportunity.
The role of a Newsie licensee is to provide access to the platform to local organizations while also sharing their own visual observations about events and activities within the territory. In time the local Newsie begins to serve as a de-facto public relations professional working with local organizations to share their stories with members of the community.
Newsie provides technology, marketing collateral, editorial content, management, and access to a community of like-minded and motivated individuals, however each licensee can improve their odds of success and reach their own financial goals by immersing themselves more in their community. The Newsie Team includes Territory and Regional Managers with tips and techniques to ensure success.
