What is Plottu
Plottu is a place for professionals to capture practical business Know-How. The Know-How is stored in small knowledge slices with < 1800 characters. This way your readers can master Know-How in less than a minute. You can share Definitions, Instructions, Trainings, Tips & Tricks, Processes and Directives. There is an open public Hub for Professionals and a closed private Hub for Companies.
Give your Know-How a Second Life
Professionals appreciate quality thinking from other professionals. That’s why we’ve created the Knowledge Hub. It’s simple to use and connects your Knowledge to curious professionals. So you can be assured your Know-How is being given a second life and recognised by others.
We believe your Know-How is worth Money
Professionals should be paid for the quality of their Know-How. That’s why soon anyone can join the Plottu Partner Program and earn money when Plottu members consult their Know-How.
Who are Your Readers?
Professionals in business who love to learn new things. People who work for companies or self-employed consultants, they all like to learn from you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Write on Plottu?
Plottu presents an opportunity for you to reach a new audience with your Know-How and help them with your experience and ultimately make money with it. The platform is geared toward sharing more well-thought-out content that is valuable for professionals.
Why types of Know-How can be added?
Any Know-How that professionals love to learn about. Things like Definitions, Work-Instructions, Trainings, Tips & Tricks, Processes and Directives. Although we keep the text for the Know-How slices limited, users can easily add existing documents, images and video’s to boost their contribution.
How many characters can I put in a Know-How Slice?
We strongly believe that Know-How should be mastered in less than a minute. On average each word has about 6 characters and it takes about a minute to read 300 words. That is why we limit the characters for each Know-How Slice to 1800. Limits are great for creativity and brevity and perfect for “to the point communication”, something readers really love too.
How to get started
In order to publish and interact with folks on the platform, you need to have an account and be logged in. You can create an account by just clicking the “Go to the Public Hub” button on this website. From there you’ll have the following sign-up options to choose from: Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter and Microsoft.
Does Plottu own your Know-How
No, you own the rights to the Know-How you post on Plottu. You’re welcome to post Know-How that you’ve published elsewhere, as long as you have the rights to do so. By posting Know-How to Plottu, you represent that doing so doesn’t conflict with any other agreement you’ve made.
Is writing on Plottu free?
Posting Know-How on Plottu is free. Content that you publish will be made available to all members of the platform for whom it is relevant.
When can I earn money for my Know-How?
When we launch the platform for companies (expected early 2021), you can join the partner program for a small membership fee. This will then give you the opportunity to distribute your work to companies and start making money from companies that consult your work. Your membership fee is used for content screening and moderation to ensure companies receive high quality Know-How.
How much can I earn?
When companies consult and like your Know-How, a portion of their membership contribution goes to the writer of the Know-How. We believe in fair sharing; our algorithm is made in such a way that someone who shares specialist know-how for a niche market and is viewed by a small audience can earn the same as someone sharing generic Know-How for a large audience. In addition we like to organise a yearly public fundraising amongst all readers of the Public Hub to make a voluntary contribution. This is then distributed among the writers in the Public Hub.
How does Plottu make money?
We make money through memberships from companies and members of the partner program.
