How To Get User Generated Content

Interested in content marketing? Here’s how to get content and monetize it using nothing more than a WordPress plugin.

The easiest way to get content, is to be a curator, not a creator.

Let people do the work and give you their content. You choose what to post and how to monetize it with ads and affiliate programs. It’s the easy to do and affordable too. Here’s how…

A couple of months ago I announced the VIA Curation Plugin for WordPress. Now I’m happy to share the updated version, along with the new single site license for only 27 dollars.

So if price was your only barrier to entry (heck you can’t even get pizza and soda delivered for that) now’s a good time to get started. And its not some watered down version of the plugin for that price. It has all the features of the developer license, which is also available.

I will show you how easy it is to curate content and monetize it. To do that, I’m about to break my cardinal rule, because I’ve never shared any of my websites until now. It’s my video curation site at .

Go there and click on the Upload and Share tab at the top. This is the VIA Curation form that visitors fill out to embed videos. (You can also set it upload articles and photos.) You can turn all fields on or off, depending on how much detail you want to collect.

Now click on some of the guest posts in the right column. That’s what the content looks like after they fill out the form. The visitor did the work and entered all the data. The ads are placed automatically by the VIA Curation custom layout. (You can choose the layout.)

The plugin emails me whenever I have new content. All I need to do is click “Approve” if I feel lazy, but sometimes I edit the post a bit, before making it go live. Now doesn’t that sound a lot easier than writing the content yourself, or hiring, managing and paying writers?

If you want to try your hand at content curation, or if you just want a cool ad management system, come look at what VIA Curation can do for you. At only 27 dollars for a single site license, you really don’t have an excuse anymore. ;-)
