Pricing

Overview

United Robots use a Content-as-a-Service model. All our content services include an unlimited number of texts a month generated from the data source used. 

In addition to texts, content services include any features listed as Standard Delivery for that product. For example, Real Estate articles include images from Google streetview, Sports articles include graphics of team logos with the final score.

The value of the volume

The Content-as-a-Service model benefits publishers who leverage the volume of content which lies at the heart of the value of automation. Simply put: Robots have no issues with scale – one article takes as long to write as 100. And that’s the key.

A robot can write about all divisions of all sports or fill in news deserts in the local reporting map with stories of company registrations and house sales – coverage which would be too resource intensive to have reporters produce. And suddenly value is generated: reader engagement and revenue and even ad impressions – without any impact to newsroom resources.

In other words, with our subscription based business model, publishers can drive incremental value at no extra cost.

Scaling

In addition to driving value by leveraging volume as described above, publishers do the same when they scale our products. Our pricing model includes relative cost reductions when a publisher:
– extends the coverage selected within one content service
– adds further content service(s)

Price model

We price our content services based on two factors:
1. Coverage selected (publisher specific)
2. Data source (content service specific)

The coverage selected defines the breadth of the scope, e g:

  • Real estate, traffic, weather: specified geographical area(s)
  • Sports: leagues / games
  • Company registrations: industries / company size etc

The data source defines the depth of the scope – the length and complexity of the generated texts. Each content service in each country/market has a specific data source.
Different data sources carry different costs, and are charged separately from the content generated (coverage selected).
