Teckedin Journey and more

  • Dark

Article Summary

Teckedin.com started as a custom two-sided platform. Its focus was on technology hardware and software vendors on one side and end users on the other.

I wanted to build a site where end users could access good content like white papers and reports without giving up their personal information. End users would log in to see the great content, and vendors could share it and have links to their sites.

___________________________________________

This concept proved a mistake as the vendor community was reluctant to share their valuable content without personal information in return. And users had to create an account (another username and password to remember) to access the content.

 

I shifted gears and started over from scratch. 

Teckedin has been built as a public knowledge base using the Document360 platform.


 

Some have said, “That’s a lot of work,” and it feels like what they really wanted to say was, “How foolish.”

Others have asked why we don’t send a newsletter or something similar.

We don’t want to collect anyone’s data, and who needs another newsletter in their email box?

______________________

There are two main reasons why we work the way we do:

1) I don’t trust content coming in automatically onto our site. We don’t want politics, celebrities, or hateful comments. The minute I give up that scrutiny and let content come in automatically, I might as well trash the whole site.

2) You can’t learn or grow unless you read and absorb the information you have been given. We offer content curated from multiple sources so that our readers have a broad perspective and hear different opinions and insights. We also want to learn. If we didn't touch everything we share, we would be missing out on our own learning and growth.

Here is what we offer.

  • We curate and categorize business technology information from numerous sites every day. We make sure that the content we put on our platform has a share button and a direct link back to the content. No company is paying us to put their news or articles on our site. We curate what is interesting and applicable to private and public entities.

  • We categorize all content so that you can get to a category of interest quickly.

  • We have no login or sign-up. When a visitor clicks on a link or an article to read, there are no requirements to provide personal information. They get the content. No questions asked.

  • We reach out to many technology experts we see posting on LinkedIn, Medium and other places. We are glad to put others' content on our site, enabling them to reach a larger audience.

  • Our site is structured as a self-service knowledge base. Visit us on your timeline and terms.

  • Our goal is to share content that will enlighten our readers, give them new perspectives, and keep them current in the ever-changing world of business technology.


How do we support our knowledge base?

Teckedin is self-funded. We have spent the last three years building our knowledge base and creating the value to justify asking for sponsors. 

 

We now have sponsorships for many of our curations. If you want to increase visibility for your product or service and see the value of providing information without asking for personal information, here are some details on our viewership and sponsor opportunities.

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope you make it a regular habit. And if you want to contribute your expertise and content, let us know.

We always welcome feedback or suggestions on how we can make our knowledge base more valuable and useful to you.

The following are the sites that we support and the applications used inside our knowledge base.

Technology applications used:

Document360 - Teckedin is built using Document360, which is a Self-service platform to build, share, and manage knowledge base, product documentation, manuals, SOPs, Wikis, and more. We began using this application in 2021.

UpContent - Teckedin uses UpContent to source blogs. The application also allows us to add other blogs to the collection. Every blog is checked before adding to our collection. UpContent is an AI-powered curation solution that tailors content to the unique needs of organizations, its representatives, and its audiences. We began using this application in 2021

Sniply - UpContent integrates the Sniply application into their curation tool. Sniply is a simple tool that shortens links and allows you to overlay your own custom message onto any piece of content, creating an opportunity for you to include a call-to-action with every link you share. We began using this tool in 2024. We share a lot of links and feel it is important to add our information so the source of the link is recognized.
