What is the Content Partnership Program? The Content Partnership Program (CPP) enables organizations and professionals with either i) a vast quantity of content or ii) a set of premium content to share their documents on docstoc and include advertising and promotion built into each of the document pages free of charge.
Every document uploaded to docstoc has its own unique landing page. Depending on the popularity of the content, these pages may be visited by 100, 1000, or 10,000 people a month. We offer our partners the ability to customize banner or text adds that are displayed on each of their document pages. The Content Partnership Program provides you with additional avenues to monetize your content and utilize your documents as valuable marketing and self promotion. Whether you’re a service-based professional, small business, or large organization, if you have documents that other people would want to share and access, you can start leveraging new benefits immediately on docstoc.com.

How Does the Partnership Program Benefit You?
Easily Embed Your Documents Across the Web – Once your content is uploaded to docstoc, you can use our proprietary viewer to embed those documents anywhere on the web (just like sharing a youtube video on other sites) - Your content has the potential to spread virally all across the internet while you retain control of its use. More on Embedding Docs Sell Premium Content – In select cases, you can also use docstoc to help sell your content. For example, stock reports, market research, or complex documents that sell as high-end premium content, may be displayed on docstoc. You can choose whether to share all of the content or just a teaser portion. You can also disable downloading and the copy and paste functionality. We provide these partners with “buy now” links that take the docstoc visitor to your online ecommerce store. (these partnerships may have a CPA fee associated with them)
Who Retains the Right to the Content? You retain the rights to your content and can modify or remove any uploaded documents at your discretion. Will the Ad Space always be Free? In the future, there may be a fee associated with the ad space provided on the document display pages. However, currently all advertising is provided free of charge and special “grandfather” terms may apply to our early partners once ad space is no longer free.
