As majority of our readers and members know, we want Naijastories to be self sustaining. We also believe in rewarding writers for good writing. This has been demonstrated by the writing contests we have organised in the past, these go beyond just feedback and reviews from judges, but also include substantial cash prizes. Previously, we had also paid cash for the integrated points rewards system on the site. All these were made from sponsor’s donations.
Recently however, we have been earning steady income from advertisements and now we want to use this as a basis for rewarding writers by paying them regularly based on the work they have on Naijastories. Each and every writer will be eligible for payment, and will be paid in arrears from the beginning of 2011. We have started a discussions in our forums along the following options;
– publishing stories as eBooks and paying writers a percentage of sales.
– Pay per view (CPM) on stories as they are currently on the site.
– Conversion of activity points based on an agreed rate
– Once a year writing contests with larger prizes or monthly contest with smaller prizes
– Pay members for new registrations on the site based on referrals
What do you think of these ideas, and how do you suggest we go about it? Join the Discussion.
