Idea behind Crazygood™
The idea behind Crazygood™ is really quite simple. Take all of the good stuff that Social Networks offer and eliminate all of the bad stuff. Then offer a helping hand to those in need and create opportunity for everyone else.
The good stuff…the intrinsic value social networks offer, which is the ability to connect, interact, and share with individuals and groups of people over the Internet and around the world. The bad stuff (as we see it) includes the customary annoying advertisements offering performance enhancing drugs, miracle weight loss solutions, and the opportunity to meet singles in my area…tonight! (btw…do people really believe that girl in the upper right hand corner of their profile page is really looking for "you" right now? Really….really?
Even worse than the insulting advertisements is the aggregation and exploitation of its users' content, whereby social network operators harvest information about its members and SELL it to the highest bidders.
'you specifically give us the following permission… you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with
(fill in the blank of your social network) ("IP License").'
'we are under NO obligation to compensate you for it, (just like you are under no obligation to offer it)'.
We didn't think we were "offering" them anything. BTW, IP content stands for Intellectual Property and includes your information and anything you post in the social network.
Now, we recognize and understand the necessity of commerce to support any "community" and Crazygood is no different. We just don't want to operate Crazygood using that particular business model. We don't want advertisements, for a whole host of reasons including issues with security, and we value privacy. So we don't support the selling of an individual's information to generate the revenue that is needed for operations. Our view is that the content you provide (your Intellectual Property) belongs to you and that any monetization of it should be shared with you…the author. The pictures are yours, the stories are yours, the videos, the opinions, the friends, the whole community…..isn't it all yours? We think so. We believe that the real value of any good community is in its people and what the people share with each other and the community. That's why we share the company revenues with all of the people who help us build a solid community. And we share it in the most fair and equitable way possible.
We offer a private social network that is about privacy and people.
But it's also about principle. We chose to offer a quality service in exchange for a fair price.
We charge a fee -- $10. That's it. Just $10 a month is all it takes to power a network that respects and protects your privacy while helping others and providing opportunity for its members. It's not a question of "how much does it cost to subscribe to our service?", but rather what do we do with the money -- 3 things
- First, we give it away -- not all of it, but it is the first thing we do. The first 10% (right off the top) goes to charity. That’s right, we give 10% of the GROSS revenues to three worthwhile causes: American Red Cross (Human Services); Feeding America (Hunger); Habitat for Humanity (Shelter).
- Second, we share HALF of all revenues with the very people who help us build this community. Those revenues are distributed based on your success at referring us new subscribers as well as your activity in the marketplace. The more members you refer to us the more revenues you share in. The model is simple, clean, and fair.
- And third, we reinvest the last 40% of revenues to add features and functionality, bandwidth and servers, translate into different languages for other countries, and so on and so on, and hopefully turn a profit. It takes a lot of work and a lot of people to build this thing and keep it running.
