NoteStream offers authors an average article completion rate of 59%, compared to the average online completion rate of only 8-15%. Further reinforcing the efficacy of the NoteStream app platform, NoteStream users are reading content at roughly 300 words per minute, compared to the average online user skimming articles at 1,000 words per minute (Source: Nielsen Norman Group). These statistics combined show that NoteStream users are consuming content and finishing articles more than their online user counterparts who end up only skim-reading and, more often than not, dropping off long before reaching the end of an article.
The NoteStream app presents content known as “NoteStreams” in short, sequential, easy-to-read segments known as “Notes.” NoteStream’s contributors are carefully selected and identified as experts in their designated category. New and existing authors, without any monetary investment to leverage this mobile platform, will benefit from the recent 2.0 update through its app and web-based author profile. The author profile provides evidence of the author’s expertise and gives ownership and transparency to each NoteStream. Contributors are provided with metrics, including number of readers and time spent with their content. All NoteStream content remains the property of the author and is fully attributed with an author profile and credits. NoteStream is developing a native advertising program, and once implemented, authors will be eligible to receive a revenue share. In addition, for authors who rely on subscribers, NoteStream has the ability to add a paywall to ensure authors are not losing any revenue while still gaining new followers through the NoteStream platform. Individuals interested in contributing to NoteStream are invited to visit http://www.notestream.com/authors/.
