Publishers who sign up to the product would receive offers from brandadvertisers to produce content on their sites and then negotiate pricing withthe advertiser directly to produce the custom content.

For advertisers, they would be able to visually explore and discoversuitable publishers and gain real-time access to statistics and reach of eachpublisher. They would also be able to review unique users and reach of eachwebsite before making an offer to have content produced.
