  • Welcome!

    Below are items which 1up! feels will help you perform as a feed editor for THRU1.

    If you have ideas about other things that would benefit feed editors, let 1up! know, and they can be posted here, too.

    As always, 1up! is here to help you best do your job...feel free to reach out whenever you need!

  • The Business Details

    1up! has built all the underlying technologies, has the relationships in the online publishing world and is working the business with clients.

    Feed editors come aboard to provide their editorial work (gathering the headlines) and they do the production work (using the formatting doc's 1up! provides) to get the aggregate headlines posted.

    If the editor formats their headlines, it's a 50/50 relationship, and so is the split on revenues. Each month a THRU1 client pays $20 for a feed, so the Feed Editor and 1up! would each earn $10/client/month. 

    1 client = $10/mo

    10 clients = $100/mo

    100 client = $1,000/mo

    ...and so on!


    If the editor collects the headlines, URLs and the attribution details, then the deal is $5/client/month, as 1up! would need to provide staffing and will be doing the production piece of the editor's job.

    Either way, the beauty is that the work a Feed Editor does for one client is the same as for hundreds, so a Feed Editor's revenue grows with the addition of reach new client and it does so without having to do any additional work.

  • Content Guidelines

    With the the COVID-19 feed the 1up! staff builds twice each day, the following guidelines for picking headlines are used:

    • Something a reader can use today? Make sure to provide content that is useful.
    • Does your headline read quickly, providing some news value without clicking through?
    • Avoid "ranking" or "lists" headlines. We can add those lists to the reference links at the bottom of your postings.
    • Strictly political rants? If it is, avoid it.
    • Same story covered by many media sources? Find the best version of the story. Or if you find two stories about the same topic, but they have opposite viewpoints, then post them both.
    • Try to find a positive slant. Makes their day better?
    • Avoid opinion, stick to the facts.
    • Avoid content behind paywalls.
    • Avoid too much overlap with other content feeds.
    • Don't shy away from providing links to web pages with video, audio or other multimedia.

    This short list of guidelines is just meant to help you develop your own set of guidelines.

    It is not meant to force you to do your work in any particular way, but to help you formulate your ideas about and the direction of your feed.

  • The following is a guide for feed editors to post their subject's content into the remote publishing widgets.

    The following points, as a guide, are simply a starting point, and each editor is encouraged to modify the process to best suit their particular needs.
