Team
Business model

When we have a critical mass on the Pugmarks.me platform,
we will pursue these business models:

1) Sponsored content : We have the context and interest graph of our users.
We will show promoted articles that are relevant to the context of the user.

2) Freemium model : We will offer premium features to enterprise customers.

Competitive advantage

We take online reading to a higher plane clearly because of our ability to understand and harness the Context of the reader. Context can be leveraged without expecting users to visit Pugmarks.me. One such scenario is reading an article on the web – Pugmarks.me automatically notifies the user if there is any ambient reading he can do around the current article. This ensures an untethered contextual
web experience that our competitors lack.
