3 April 2012 | BetakitPostDesk is launching in private beta to provide long-form editorial content, publishing in-depth news, reviews, critique and opinion pieces, surrounding the topics of tech, gaming, culture and politics. PostDesk has an in-house editorial staff, as well as a network of 20 curated content contributors, and they handle promotion and marketing of all pieces. The community also encourages readers to comment on and debate articles – they earn points and badges through their comments, and the ones with the best insight or strongest followings will be invited to become a contributor. Founder Sam England plans to pay all contributors through a revenue-sharing model. He said the company is already profitable and it has a “solid revenue model,” and isn’t looking for additional funding. They have secured launch partners and sponsors for each section, as well as the site as a whole.
