Join the Revolution!!

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

As all of you already know, I love blogging, both personally and for pay. PayPerPost is just a great way to earn some great cash and also learn about new products/services and such. PayPerPost run by the tireless and jetsetting Ted Murphy along with a dedicated staff is now super huge and getting bigger everyday. We've had opportunities from Lionsgate Films, and the new Stephen King film 1408, prizes from HP. This isn't a chump change company, I'm telling you!! I've already made a hefty sum!! I love Murphy's idea and his thoughts on consumer/blogger outreach In fact, I just received my new digital camera I bought with my Pay Per Post earnings. Not to shabby, eh? Now the latest breaking news out of Camp PPP is that they've received 7 million dollars in funding!! Pay Per Post announced that they received the 7 million dollars from Draper Fisher Jurvetson, an investor in the company's Series A and one of the world’s leading high-technology venture capital firms. This brings a grand total of 10 million dollars in funding and will allow Pay Per Post the ability to establish itself as the Internet's leading Consumer Generated Advertising market. Here is a press release that will explain it much better than I.

Press Release:

The PayPerPost Revolution Accelerates, Sponsored Blogging Marketplace Secures $7 Million Series B

Draper Fisher Jurvetson leads round and joins Board of Directors

ORLANDO, FL – (June 12, 2007) – PayPerPost, the leading marketplace for advertisers to reach bloggers and other consumer content creators, today announced it has completed a $7 million second round investment led by Draper Fisher Jurvetson, an investor in the company's Series A and one of the world’s leading high-technology venture capital firms. The financing brings the total amount of capital raised by PayPerPost to over $10 million, giving the company considerable resources for further development as the industry’s leading Consumer Generated Advertising marketplace. Additional participants in the round include existing investors Inflexion Partners and Village Ventures as well as new investor DFJ Gotham. With this investment, DFJ Managing Director Josh Stein also joins PayPerPost’s Board of Directors.

“PayPerPost created this exciting new advertising space and has established itself as the industry leader,” said Ted Murphy, chief executive officer of PayPerPost. “Although we’ve only used a portion of our first round capital, this added support from investors unlocks significant growth potential. Our content creator and advertiser ROI metrics clearly demonstrate the upside for PayPerPost’s model. We intend to use this capital to build the infrastructure, visibility and professional expertise necessary to reach and retain a greater network of advertisers and content creators than ever before.”

Since its founding in June of 2006, PayPerPost has signed more than 6,500 advertisers to its groundbreaking service, which has enabled Consumer Content Creators to be compensated for their efforts discussing specific companies, products or services via blogs, videos or other media. The content creators are required to disclose relationships with advertisers on their blog, providing transparency for the end reader. Over 125,000 Internet postings, most in the form of blogs, have already earned money for their creators through PayPerPost’s innovative marketplace. PayPerPost recently released PayPerPost Direct, a disruptive new service that allows advertisers to contract and negotiate directly with individual bloggers they identify through a safe, managed system.

“PayPerPost has laid a strong foundation for the future,” noted Tim Draper, founder and managing director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson. “It continues to attract a critical mass of participants from both the advertising and blogging communities. Analogous to Overture’s sponsored search model, we believe PayPerPost’s business model holds disruptive potential and will enable the company to thrive in the evolving paid-content arena.”

To mark the $7 million dollar funding, PayPerPost has launched a new website detailing the company’s service offering at http://www.payperpost.com. Bloggers and advertisers can easily sign up at the site and begin leveraging the self service marketplace.

If you wouldI like my two cent's worth. I know the money should be used to further the advance of PayPerPost. Garner more and more advertisers. But...maybe, umm, sending a loyal postie or two (hint, hint) a T-shirt could be cool too!! I'm sure the money will be well spent and used to grow PayPerPost even bigger with Ted Murphy at the helm. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go and open my new camera. Thanks Pay Per Post!!
