WeGather is a global online platform where experts and enthusiasts can lead discussions on topics that matter to their community, and earn an income for providing that expertise and content.
In a world where social media users are bombarded with an overwhelming amount of low-quality content online, from clickbait articles to overly sensational stories to fake news, it’s a race to the bottom. We believe this trend is perpetuated by the free-with-advertising revenue model where users pay for content consumption with their attention.
To turn this dismal trend on its head, WeGather works towards bringing content delivery and the features for fan-funding together in one service where the quality of content and reputation of the content creators are paramount. Netflix has shown how people will pay for quality content. Patreon has shown an audience will voluntarily support creators they love.
On WeGather, validated discussion leaders can earn through tips and donations from their followers/audience and by hosting pay-to-access discussions. Discussion leaders are brought together in Communities (e.g. Fitness, Business, Relationships, etc), so it’s easy for users to find experts in that field and all their discussions in one place.
