New Orleans, LA – Today, more than one billion* people surf the
Internet. And that number is growing. So is the amount of revenue
being generated online.
For example, online advertising expenditures are targeted to
reach an estimated $11.6 billion by 2010, according to a forecast
from Forrester Research**, Inc., with ads specifically reaching
others via blogs and through RSS. And online spending from
average Internet users is predicted to generate revenues in 2006
of $1.8 billion and $1.7 billion just in the categories of online
games and digital music alone, according to a report by Jupiter
What draws people online to make these purchases? In a word,
“People want the sites that they visit to be information
resources, no matter what the subject,” said Jack Humphrey,
managing partner in the exclusive Content Desk Charter Members
publishing group. “Articles, reports, facts, tips, newsletters,
forums, blogs, audio, video, interviews, product reviews,
creative writing, public domain information, RSS and much more.”
Content Desk has a variety of tools to help members create and use
all types of content. The exclusive online community focuses on
four things; community, learning, technology and profits.
“Creating good, relevant content has always been the biggest
problem in creating a web site that can attract and retain
visitors,” said Sid Hale, co-creator of jvAlert and charter
member of Content Desk. “With Content Desk's Content Site

that content to my site within just a few days. That included the
Hale signed up immediately after reading a report written by
Humphrey entitled, "Building a Content Publishing Empire." Being
a content publisher and knowing how much work can be involved in
building content for a site, he felt the decision to join Content
Desk was a “no-brainer.” For a copy of the report and Hale’s case
study, both at no cost, contact: http://www.contentdesk.com .
The Content Desk membership community communicates via their
private forum, conferences, teleconferences, email and support
desk. Some of their tools are downloads, while others are online
applications and knowledge shared through learning. Learning is
offered in the form of videos, articles, help texts, tutorials,
member sharing and seminars/workshops.
Content Desk membership fees go right back into development of
new software and tools so that members are always on the
cutting-edge and far ahead of all the "point-and-click" site
builders out there.
Cyber-brains behind the Content Desk scene are the “Power Trio;”
Jack Humphrey, Mark Braunstein, and Peter Lenkefi. These three
renowned visionaries found themselves smack dab in the middle of
the emerging, fledgling web publishing industry.
“Giving (website visitors) what they want is the first step in
building relationships rather than one-time visitors,” said
Humphrey. “We feel it is crazy to work hard on traffic that will
never come back to our sites. Especially if the only change we
need to make to those sites is adding good material that visitors
enjoy! First time visits are expensive. Repeat visits are
