Wow, this month ContentBiz surpassed 10,000 subscribers. Most of

more profitable online. Here's the line-up of changes so far:
-> New ContentBiz Daily Blog
Yesterday we launched a complimentary daily service to ContentBiz

practical business model and marketing knowledge. The daily will
keep you up to date with news and gossip. Right now you have to
go to the site to see it, in October we'll add a email

include more practical information on how to sell ads on sites
and email newsletters. Look for more stories soon.

potential clients? Are you an industry insider who'd like to
share your wisdom? Would you like to report from a content-
related trade show or event? We're looking for contributed

for your company) and not published anywhere else for 30 days.

will reach 10,000 of your peers and get a hotlink back to your
own site, plus any other contact info you'd like to add. Contact
firstname.lastname@example.org with queries and ideas.
-> ContentBiz Subscription Site Coming in October

subscription site launch. You'll be able to research knowledge
by topic, such as Subscription Marketing, Syndication, or Ad
Sales; as well as by type of publication such as Magazines,
Newsletters or Books.
