New York, NY (PressExposure) August 04, 2011 -- The digital content curation and monetization platform Znak it!, developed by Znak Inc., will launch its public beta in August 2011. Pre-registration for the platform is now available at http://www.znakit.com. A forerunner in the field of digital content monetization since 2008, Znak it! recently won the 2011 Florin Transaction Service Innovation Award, honored for its outstanding innovations in the transaction services industry.
Znak it! offers a three-pronged solution for content monetization, satisfying content providers, web users and advertisers at once. For content providers, Znak it! acts as a nano-payment solution to help monetize premium content, services and apps. Web users benefit from access to high-quality content quickly and safely, using pre-paid virtual tokens (Znaks) to pay for timed access to selected premium content including articles, reference materials, music, video and games. For advertisers and marketers, the service offers access to a large pool of dedicated, paying customers for purposes of market research and targeted promotions and allows them to sponsor web user access to paid content.
The platform has been developed using Java/J2EE, plugin-less browser-based technologies in the "cloud" environment and is in accordance with the strict payment/banking transaction processing and safety standards (SSL).
"There's been such a boom in content monetization ideas recently and so much talk about their feasibility. We already have case studies demonstrating how successful content providers and advertisers can be using our model," says Znak Inc. founder and CEO Greg Golebiewski. "Indeed, Ted Nelson, considered by many to be the father of the World Wide Web, says that he came up with the idea of micropayment to make hypertext possible. It's an idea as old as the Web itself and we're excited to help bring it to full fruition."
Znak Inc. is a Delaware corporation with development offices in Portugal and Poland. Znak Inc. develops software-as-a-service (SaaS) and server-based solutions for digital content creators and distributors, designed to effectively curate and monetize premium content, ad free.
Znak Inc is a two-time Silver Sponsor of Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco and was recognized by the VDZ, the umbrella organization of German Magazine Publishers, as one of the most innovative digital content solutions. Most recently, the company's flagship content monetization platform Znak it! was awarded the prestigious 2011 Florin Community Award given to the most innovative payment transaction services by the payment professionals and online users.
