Liveblogging platform ScribbleLive is to open up its syndication marketplace to allow freelancers to get paid for creating content for its clients.
ScribbleLive founder Michael De Monte (pictured) said the syndication marketplace, which will launch next year, will allow individuals who sign up to its freelancers’ plan to make money when they are covering or talking about live events online.
ScribbleLive already has a syndication marketplace for large organisations like Thomson Reuters and they plan to extend this service to other paying subscribers.
Speaking at news:rewired, De Monte said the product would help media organisations to cover breaking news from all over the world.
“You can’t be every place, every time,” he said. “Hopefully there will be a journalist producing that content and it can go into system.”
