If you have worthwhile content, a sizable social media following and the vision to monetize all of that, then Arielle Jordan would like a word with you.

Jordan, of Miamisburg, is the creator of Curafied, a new Internet platform that enables users to place what they believe is expert, valuable content behind a paywall for publication in a user-friendly, ad-free environment.

Users on Curafied — the company name is a variation on “curated content” — receive subscription funds for access to their content.

“They’ll receive a dollar per subscriber per month,” Jordan said in a phone interview Friday. “It’s free for them to sign up to use our platform.”

Curafied aims for seamless transactions for users, handling payments and offering an array of features, such as the uploading of PDFs and charts.

“It’s behind a paywall,” she said. “It’s a way for people to directly monetize their content.”

Curafied can be a home for expert instruction in, say, auto maintenance or martial arts, arts and crafts or history. The content can range from posts to photos to videos.

“It’s less than a cup of coffee for all of this information,” Jordan said.

Posting mechanics are similar to Facebook, but ad-free. It’s also meant to be a friendly environment for customers, too.

“When you’re connected with an expert whose content you enjoy, but you don’t want to see on Facebook all those ads and trolls and all kinds of other junk mixed in … it would be nice if these people had their own place to go,” Jordan said.
