Today, the company is introducing a “build your own” (BYO) motif option that will allow individuals, organizations, and brands to construct and share their own collections of stocks online. In approximately one month, these fund creators will be able to make money through royalties when other investors buy their funds. Community BYO motifs will soon be featured in the equivalent of an investment marketplace where others can search, discover, and purchase based on these ideas, or use them as a starting point to make personalized modifications. Users can also share the motifs they create via Facebook and Twitter, should the wish.
This feature actually allows you to be your own hedge fund manager without taking all those pesky Series exams to get your license. The payout might not be as good but you can still earn royalties on the amount of people who are buying your ideas. You could even build your own brand on twitter and direct people to your motif portfolio. This combines social media revenue with your investing revenue!
