StumbleUpon Becomes Profitable Venture in Mobile Era

The Mobile Era Makes StumbleUpon a Profitable Venture

The bookmarking setup named StumbleUpon is carrying on in the usual game of survival. But now it just might be on to something. At least, that is what its sales figures show. A growth surplus from the previous year by 33% has made StumbleUpon a force to be reckoned with. The annual revenue currently hovers between $35 million and $40 million. 

Expectations from the company of entering the mobile market are high indeed. About 40% of StumbleUpon’s functions occur on mobile devices. This is a leap of 20% since the year 2012. The company is looking into ways of browsing rather than merely searching for information. 

StumbleUpon is a unique online firm. The company’s website does not need textual input. You merely have to click a series of buttons in order to gain access to brand new content. Its name explains it all. You literally “stumble upon” all sorts of serendipitous information via this wonderful tool of modern times. 

A plethora of advertisers (at least 100,000 in number) use the platform on a daily basis. From Comedy Central to Elle and from Harper’s Bazaar to Levi’s, they all help StumbleUpon do its own thing in an even better way.  Lovers of novelty and excitingly fresh content will find StumbleUpon the ideal instrument to employ attaining their goals.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
