Interested in joining Helio as an Alpha? Some answers:
How is Helio different?
Helio is the publishing platform for passion economy creators and small businesses who are already established: We're boiling down the tool suite of some of the biggest publishers, for solo creators and small teams, with everything under one roof. Intuitive and flexible is our sweet spot for Helio: we're building tools for creators, not engineers!
Who is behind Helio?
We're a young company with deep experience in publishing and delivery platforms, advanced monetization and analytics (at the New York Times, Taboola) We were incubated at Founders Factory with funding from GMG Ventures (The Guardian)
What kind of creators do you support?
We are for every type of creators: whether you monetize your content directly with one-off sales (like courses), or want to establish subscriptions. There's no limit in topics (except certain activities like guns or porn), and we're very focused on being able to support very visual creators -- across the lifestyle and artistic spectrum
How much does Helio cost?
Our Alpha users will pay nothing for several months and receive deeply discounted terms for several years for joining early. Eventually, Helio will run with a mix of hosting fees tied to your traffic, some usage fees (email) and revenue-related fees for monetization tools at the low end of comparable tools. We're in it to help you scale big, and our pricing reflects that
Is Helio running on my own site?
Helio can run under your domain (which we recommend for your long term SEO), or Helio's own. We send emails from your domain, like the pros: you're making a long term investment in your domain authority and insuring you can't be tagged as spam if other creators don't behave well
