Refer creators to Scriber and earn up to $100,000 per creator
Building community and sharing success We know our creators all belong to a broader community of people with expertise and interest in the investment space — the eclectic, curious, and analytically-minded community we at Scriber are here to serve. Members of this community come across one another on finance or crypto Twitter, they host each other on podcasts, they subscribe to each other’s newsletters. Nearly all great writers and thinkers are themselves subscribers to other people’s blogs and newsletters. So, in response to users’ suggestions, we are today introducing a referral program whereby any Scriber creator who refers another creator who goes on to monetize their work via Scriber can share in their success. We will pay creators for successful referrals from our own (we think very reasonable) 7% fee (remember we reimburse all your payment fees as well). How it works Creators can refer other creators by manually putting the Scriber team in touch with someone from their network or just by having a confirmed subscriber of theirs go on to become a Scriber creator . Once the referred creator gets up and running on Scriber with a paid subscription tier, the person who referred them is entitled to a payment from us equivalent to 1% of that creator’s earnings , paid entirely out of Scriber’s fee (not the creator’s). Users can earn up to $100,000 per creator they refer and can refer as many creators as they’d like. Creators → Subscribers → Creators As part of their publication setup process, creators import their existing subscribers (if they have any) to their Scriber account. Then, as they publish new posts and grow their audience, new users are introduced to the Scriber ecosystem. If any of these subscribers then go on to become a Scriber creator, they are considered to have been referred to Scriber by the original creator. Creators can also always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to recommend someone from their network who might be interested in becoming a creator. Then, when we set that person up with a Scriber account, they will automatically qualify as a referral. Payment schedule and eligibility We will make referral payments on a semi-annual basis to applicable creators. To receive a referral payment, each creator will need to set up a connected Stripe account by completing the getting paid step of the onboarding process. To remain eligible to receive referral payments, applicable creators will need to still be publishing on Scriber routinely and in accordance with our terms and content rules. Here’s to you… We’ve been blown away by the passion our creators have brought to this product in such a short period of time, and this referral program is our attempt to reward these passionate early adopters. As always, if you have any questions about this program or anything else, don’t hesitate to contact us at the email address above or via Scriber itself.

Introducing Scriber—A creator stack for financial content
We launched Scriber in open beta a little over a month ago and have been really thrilled with the number of content creators who have signed up and are using our product to inform their readers about financial markets, macroeconomics, politics and more. In this Product@Scriber publication, we will be focusing on all aspects of the product here at Scriber: our roadmap, our process, feedback from content creators and much more. We will be previewing upcoming features, highlighting some of the things we’re working on and thinking about. But before we get to that, here’s a little Scriber history. From internal tool to global product Scriber was spun out of the technology lab at Tellimer , an Emerging Markets focused insights business. In growing that business, we came to understand that while investment analysts, editors and commentators know markets, they don’t necessarily have the technical expertise to produce, distribute, analyse and monetise their insights via their own creator stack—at least not without a bunch of different 3rd-party tools and some hands-on engineering support. As a FinTech firm focused on distributing hard-to-find insights to some of world’s largest asset management firms, banks and governments, Tellimer had to build a unified set of technical products that many financial research firms—let alone individual analysts—simply didn’t have the time, budget or expertise to build. This meant that we: And so, earlier this year, we decided to open up Scriber to anyone with insights about markets, macro, politics—or anyone who wants to connect with an audience interested in these topics—leveraging the technical work that we had already carried out at Tellimer. In essence, we built the creator stack for financial content. Now, what’s next? The public beta out now is modest in its scope but we will be shipping a number of comprehensive features over the coming months that will set us apart for financial content creators. At the end of this quarter we will start rolling out subscription and payment management, allowing creators to charge for access to their publications. We will preview this upcoming release, along with some of theexciting things we have on the roadmap for Q3, in a series of future posts. We are iteratively taking the parts of the product suite we built for Tellimer and adapting them for general use here at Scriber—all based on direct creator feedback and the expertise we have amassed running Tellimer. We’re so exciting to be able to share our product with you and we look forward to hearing from you about what you’d like to see us work on next. Get in touch with us at email@example.com with comments and feedback and, if you haven’t already, sign up for free to join our growing network of financial content creators.
