"In just over ten days, I had thousands of readers of my articles on Ulitzer, mainly on marketing and sales. It would be nearly impossible to get that at Ning for a new community site!"
What is Ulitzer?
Ulitzer is a brand new social media tool for creating, delivering, and consuming content on the Web. Anyone can create topics, magazines, and subject-based portals on Ulitzer, pre-populate them with over one million articles available, and launch a new Ulitzer topic in minutes.

Can Anyone Apply To Become a Ulitzer Author?
Yes, it's for anyone who wants to have a personal presence on the Web, and who wishes to take advantage of Ulitzer's revolutionary content delivery functionality, coupled with unmatched syndication and exposure capabilities.
What Kind of Topics Can I Start?
You may start a new topic on any subject or write a story and post to any existing topic. Trademarked topic names can be launched by trademark owners or Ulitzer editors as sponsored sites only. If you would like to start a sponsored topic, the Ulitzer sales team will contact you with sponsorship opportunities.
Is It Free?
Yes. Bona fide individuals/professionals - subject to approval, confirmation of ID, etc. - pay nothing. Ulitzer also offers sponsored programs for corporate customers, through which they can create completely customizable company and product portals and enjoy the entire rich Ulitzer feature set at highly competitive rates.
Do I Get Paid As a Ulitzer Author, Topic Editor, and Founder?
Yes. You earn 100% of the Google AdSense revenue as a Ulitzer author and blogger on all Google ads placed on your article and blog pages and syndicated through Ulitzer and its affiliated sites.
Ulitzer authors can add their Google AdSense account numbers to their profile pages to start earning 100% AdSense cash immediately. Topic editors should obtain a new AdSense account from Google to be used strictly on their Ulitzer story pages. Ulitzer will match their AdSense revenues 100% and payment will be made to their PayPal accounts. Just submit your AdSense revenue figures once a quarter to accounting (at) sys-con.com for your matched revenue payment.
Can I Earn 100% Revenue with Ulitzer If I Blog Elsewhere?
Yes. If you maintain a blog elsewhere, you simply create your Ulitzer author profile page, link it to your existing blog with a simple RSS or Atom feed link and you are good to go. Ulitzer will act as your syndication and distribution agent and you will get paid 100% of the Google AdSense revenue on all your stories.
1) Make sure you are feeding full text to your Ulitzer site, not a summary. Summary blog pages will not be picked up for syndication but they will still appear on your author page.
2) If you submit your articles or blogs for approval rather than feeding them, you have a better chance of "wide" syndication, since all submitted stories go through editorial review and the Ulitzer editors make sure your stories are syndicated throughout all relevant affiliate sites. An RSS feed set up from your external blog will update your author page; however, your blogs do not get the maximum exposure they deserve. Always submit a story for syndication outside your automatic RSS setup!
Three Easy Steps to Get Started!
1) Create your author profile page by filling out all fields and submit it for approval. [Note: Your submission will be REJECTED if you have typos or missing information fields, including bio and a 100 x 100 pixel photo.]
2) Once you receive your author approval notification, create a number of topics you are interested in writing on and submit them for approval. You may submit stories to existing topics as well.
3) Submit the stories to be published on each of your topics and other relevant Ulitzer topics.
The Key to Ulitzer: Your Author Site
The first step is to create your author site. Once you have an author site, you will be able to create and manage topic sites, write articles, and manage your author site. Your author site must have your name, professional bio, 100x100 headshot, and a slogan otherwise it will not be approved. Do not use your company as the name of the site or the domain name. You can insert your company name in the company field on your site as well as your company URL. Once you have created your author site and it has been approved, you can then create topic sites that pertain to your company.
I'm a PR Agent, How Shall I Use Ulitzer?
After the three steps above, select the "Author = News Desk" option; this will post your story at the relevant topic news desk without your byline.
Ulitzer Will Change the Face of Online Media
"Ulitzer is simple, intuitive, and provides a powerful digital tool for creating, distributing, consuming, and aggregating content. Within minutes of registration, I had a personal author site connected to my external blog and I had launched a new e-zine (Cloudonomics Journal) with content contributed from twelve different authors. Combining simplicity with powerful functionality, Ulitzer will change the face of online media."
Founder, Cloudonomics Journal
Ulitzer Made Our Community a Global Phenomenon
"Since launching the Cloud Interoperability Magazine on Ulitzer.com, I have seen both our community as well our cloud interoperability movement blossom into a global phenomenon. I can thank a large part of this to the increased exposure Ulitzer has given us. Ulitzer is one of the most powerful and the easiest online media interfaces I've had the privilege of working with."
Founder, Cloud Computing Interoperability Magazine
My Ulitzer Enthusiasm is Contagious!
"I became a Ulitzer author by creating my own two magazines under the Travel and Hospitality subject section where I am regularly posting my travel articles. My enthusiasm which Ulitzer created is contagious. I can't wait to visit 'Greek Isles in the Summer' and 'Turkish Riviera' magazines several times a day and see which one my most popular articles appear on top stories section!"
Founder, Greek Isles in the Summer Magazine
Who Are the Ulitzer Authors at Beta Launch?
At the time of this beta release, Ulitzer authors include recently approved authors (spread over all 25 subject groups) as well as SYS-CON published authors (computers and software subject group).
I'm Listed As a Ulitzer Author and I Want to Update my Profile
If you are listed on the Ulitzer author pages as a SYS-CON published author, you can now update your bio, photo and other profile information yourself. You can also continue publishing new articles and blogs by posting them directly through your author page or by linking your external blog feed into your Ulitzer author profile. This feature allows you to keep your favorite blog engine and Ulitzer content syndication at the same time.
To update your existing SYS-CON author profile, simpy log in and request your temporary password to be emailed to you. If you have any difficulty in obtaining your temporary password, please contact editorial (at) sys-con.com for assistance.
I'm Listed on Ulitzer As SYS-CON Author and I Wish to Turn Off My Author Page
Simply email editorial (at) sys-con.com; your Ulitzer author page will be turned off within 48 hours.
How Do I Publish My Article To a Specific Ulitzer Magazine or Topic Site?
Every Ulitzer author has a Ulitzer Dashboard, which appears when you sign in. To give yourself the ability to assign articles to appear at Ulitzer.com at other places than just your own Author page, you need to go to Author Site on your dashboard and use the Topics tab. Here, as you will see, you can assign up to six Topics within Ulitzer to which you wish to be able to assign your articles, news items, book reviews, interviews, press releases, blog posts, etc.
Once assigned, these Topics will always be available to you. Every time you complete a new item, just return to the Topics tab and click on which of the six Topic sites (including all of them) you want the items to appear on. Requests are subject to approval but you do not usually have to wait more than a couple of hours, tops.
After making a doctor’s appointment via your mobile device, you receive a calendar invite. The day of your appointment, you get a reminder with the doctor’s location and contact information. As you enter the doctor’s exam room, the medical team is equipped with the latest tablet containing your medical history – he or she makes real time updates to your medical file. At the end of your visit, you receive an electronic prescription to your preferred pharmacy and can schedule your next appointment.

Wearable technology was dominant at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) , and MWC was no exception to this trend. New versions of favorites, such as the Samsung Gear (three new products were released: the Gear 2, the Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit), shared the limelight with new wearables like Pebble Time Steel (the new premium version of the company’s previously released smartwatch) and the LG Watch Urbane. The most dramatic difference at MWC was an emphasis on presenting wearables as fashion accessories and moving away from the original clunky technology associated with t...
