If you haven’t heard of the new teen startup Surely, it is an advertising platform aimed at simplicity. Surely’s team consists of all teenagers. It was founded by Jack DeFuria, an uprising entrepreneur who co-founded Klassio, and some of the team have worked on some really big products. You might remember Klassio, the blogging platform also aimed at simplicity. To match this reoccurring theme, half of the Surely staff is made up of Klassio’s team, while the other half of Surely consists of Zachary Collins, Manu Gill, and J.D Remington. Surely has announced they will be going into public beta sometime this November.
I’ve had a chance to play around with Surely, and it is certainly a very cool product. Advertisers can publish ads for just 15-cents per click, and publishers will be paid 10-cents clicks. This is an excellent way to get your product out there, noticed, and an even better way to make money from your web properties.
We will have more coverage as Surely goes into beta. Be expecting an interview in the coming weeks, and in the meantime, take a gander at these screenshots.
We’ve contacted a ton of sites on the web in the past few weeks and we’re happy to announce that our network is ready to launch a beta. If you’re on the mailing list you’ll be receiving an email today with more information. If you are an advertiser or publisher that wants to join our network (or you want to be on the mailing list), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
SaySurely is taking basic pay-per-click advertising and making it beautiful. And simple.
