Most bloggers know that getting paid for content takes some time, and many times advertising money alone can't cover all the costs of your project. Oronjo is a new platform for selling your content that has a lot of people excited about how it might be able to adapt to the changing face of online media. In a way, you become your own boss with their model.
Making an Oronjo account is simple, as they merely ask for an email and a password. The next thing you want to do is update your country and currency preferences, and then you're ready to start selling. You can either choose to sell a particular document, or sell online content such as a blog or a website that you've created.
Once you upload a file or indicate the site you wish to sell, you'll be given the ability to set a prive anywhere down to 'zero' dollars. Then you'll get a small embed button to use to promote your sales on Oronjo, and be able to track the money you've made off of any of your uploads. For now, Oronjo is a completely free service, but if you read the terms of service agreement, you'll see that it may not be like that forever:
"Oronjo's service is offered for free. However, Oronjo may change its
pricing and/or payment structure at any time. If You dispute any
payment made under the Program, You must notify Oronjo in writing
within thirty (30) days of any such payment; failure to so notify
Oronjo shall result in the waiver by You of any claim relating to any
such disputed payment."
Payments that you receive from Oronjo take out the applicable fees for using either PayPal or Google Account. Also, there's an option for purchasers to use their Oronjo "wallet", which probably reduces those costs slightly, although I'm not sure. If you're a writer, photographer, or any sort of freelancer, go check it out, and let us know what you think of this new business model in the comments.
