Tomfoolery: Smartnews goes live April 1

In Freelance, Publishing, smartnews on March 30, 2009 at 6:22 pm

Randy Foster sent along a note to all our Facebook friends. I thought I’d repost it here:

On Wednesday, when SMARTNEWS NC goes live, there will be three different flavors of the site:

1. The landing page and the only site that is public. This is where stumblers, referrals and prospects will encounter SMARTNEWS. It will include samples of content, basic marketing information, links to FAQs, resources for asking more questions, and online forms for joining SMARTNEWS NC.

2. The password-protected main site. This will be similar to the site you see now, but will behind a password protected wall. Members will receive user names and passwords via e-mail Tuesday. Guest accounts are available for our Facebook friends and for member prospects who want to get a better feel for the service.

3. Password-protected navigation interface. This site will be no-frills-simple and designed for busy editors who want to get to what they need quickly. Think of it more as a Web application user interface than a Web site.

We have 30 contributors signed up. If you’re one and you still haven’t sent me your information or content, now’s the time. If you’ve been thinking about joining SMARTNEWS NC, now’s also the time.

Thanks for being a SMARTNEWS friend.

So, meanwhile, check out Smartnews before it goes behind the wall. And join our Facebook group and help us figure this thing out.
