The owner/operator of this account is [[Directory:Gregory J. Kohs|Gregory J. Kohs]]. I love the idea behind [[Centiare:About|Centiare]] -- a wiki encyclopedia that encourages advocates' point-of-view and allows "ownership" of Directory pages.  My start-up firm, [[Directory:MyWikiBiz|MyWikiBiz]], is helping both for-profit and non-profit corporations, entities, and their products find a home within wiki spaces.

The owner/operator of this account is [[Directory:Gregory J. Kohs|Gregory J. Kohs]]. I have been managing businesses on the Internet since [[1995]], and I've been involved with wikis since [[2005]].  The new MyWikiBiz is a wiki encyclopedia and directory that encourages advocates' point-of-view and allows "ownership" of Directory pages.  The idea was spawned by Karl Nagel, and we incubated the project for one year at Centiare.com.  My firm, [[Directory:MyWikiBiz|MyWikiBiz]], has taken ownership of the wiki, and we're determined to actually let it ''define'' our future business model.  MyWikiBiz wants to help individual people, products, for-profit and non-profit corporations, clubs, athletic teams, and other entities find a home within wiki spaces.  The advantage to them is '''findability'''.  A page here will get outstanding search engine ranking -- sometimes even better than a comparable page on Wikipedia.

So far, so good. Our clients have been very satisfied with the services we've provided.

==Money and marketing ideas==
 +
The following are some concepts that we've been thinking about to monetize MyWikiBiz for ourselves and our editors.
   −
When we're not authoring and marking up free-license content for clients, you may find us engaged in various Internet and traditional media discussions about the future opportunities of wiki domains.
+
* Place global Amazon ads in the sidebar of every page.  Revenues of which go to MyWikiBiz ownership to offset server and hosting costs.  Editors would not be allowed to place their own Amazon ads, as that would likely conflict with Amazon's terms.  Editor-placed Google AdSense ads and other marketing within Directory articles would continue undisturbed.
 +
 
 +
* Sell rights to have a "featured article" on the Main Page for different periods of time.  For example, [[Directory:Lion Graphics|Lion Graphics]] might pay $5 to have its Directory page featured for two days, or $10 for seven days.
 +
 
 +
* As [[Directory:Page Creations|Garrett Minks' ''Page Creations'']] service does, we may offer (in addition to the "do it yourself" option) Directory page authoring services for clients who understand the potential of a semantic wiki listing, but don't have the skills to create and optimize such a listing.
 +
 
 +
* Run a promotional contest to see which page editor can achieve the highest Google search engine result for a MyWikiBiz page about some relatively unknown celebrity-of-the-moment, such as [[Directory:Ellie Rountree|Ellie Rountree]] or [[Directory:Liz Cohen|Liz Cohen]].  Reward would be prominent mention for that editor's services in a press release, plus a modest cash prize.
