PocketNewz is….

  • Easy and Simple to Use: Within minutes, authenticated content makers can create a broadcast station, post content and attract viewers on the platform.
  • Free! The Starter version of PocketNewz is available to newspapers, journalists, and Newzers without charge.
  • Made for Content Makers: PocketNewz has many unique features from which content makers and their readers will benefit, helping provide a much better viewer experience.
  • For Community Only: Our intent is to keep out the “main-stream media” such as NYT, WSJ, CNN, Fox, etc. so that viewers can get news that is more localized vs. national.
  • Safe: Only authenticated users can post publicly on PocketNewz.

Why use PocketNewz ….

  • Viewers with mobile phones will spend almost 7X more time viewing content in-app versus going to a website on a mobile device. More engagement means more monetization.
  • 80 to 90 percent of newspaper revenues still come from print — despite almost 20 years of investment in digital media.
  • Current social media platforms do not reward the content maker with direct revenue opportunities.
  • Why give your news content to social media sites for free? Start a station. Invite collaborators (if an independent journalist) or your reporters (if a local newspaper) or friends in your community (if a social media Newzer). Start broadcasting. Start monetizing your content.
