Kick Adsense to the curb and use QuickInsert.com to sell content directly to those who want it. Or, use QuickInsert to protect your goodies from prying eyes.
QuickInsert.com is founded by Alex Schliker, who is also the founder of Coderam.com, and Fantasticscripts.com. Alex is a bootstrapped entrepreneur which is interesting considering most of the other startups have venture capitalists backing them.
The Nitty Gritty:
How does it work? QuickInsert acts as a third party content protection service. Once you create an account, any of the content you place into that account becomes known as ‘protected content‘ and is unavailable to non-users. When a user registers on your site, they are presented with a Google Checkout/Paypal page, or their accounts are activated immediately. Once this is complete, users can then access your protected content.
QuickInsert touts the following features:
- Quick and easy content protection!
- Hosted content storage
- One line of code to protect your website
- Secure storage of your site’s content via SSL
- Management tools for you and your users
- Payment gateway support for Paypal and Google Checkout
- Membership Is Free
Registered QS members will be able to access a fairly decent control panel which gives you all of the options you need to protect your content. From within the control panel, you have the ability to edit gateways, edit sites, edit users, edit content, edit your own account, suggest features and last but not least, pricing options.
I think Alex’s idea is a good one but it comes at a time where everyone on the web is expecting everything to be free. Your content also has to be pretty unique for anyone to consider buying it. If you feel your content has what it takes to pay your bills, give QuickInsert.com a try as it may be the easiest way to manage your protected content.
