News outlets have plenty of eyeballs.
Take a handful of news chains together and you’ve got an audience of over 100 Million unique monthly online visitors.
That’s like having the viewership of the NFL’s Big Game. Pretty good. Except the news outlet traffic is every month - that’s a lot of eyeballs.
Taboola, the pioneers behind those “weird trick” ads, sees 1.4 billion unique visits every month. But by putting clickbait space to better use, we can improve two industries: community journalism and ecommerce.
How will WeCart do that?
We’re helping local news outlets transform from mere advertising platforms to fully functioning retailers.
Our platform provides a white-label storefront for news partners, stocked with products from our centralized catalog, as well as local goods and services. Our news partners will also integrate product ads into their news feeds.
That’s where you come in. Imagine every news story in hundreds of news sites pushing your products.
Here’s how WeCart works:
To our news partners, WeCart is an updated revenue model. For you, it’s a better approach to ecommerce.
