We are considering adding some type of ad slot that users do not see unless they opt in which boosts their rewards.
This would be great (h/t to @kr as well on this topic)
I would love to be able to promote certain content and feature releases for my product on SN, and differentiate from more general questions/discussions/news.
I am also happy to pay more to be featured without decay for a certain time length as well, and it would be great for a user to recognize the transparency and intent of my promoted product post as compared to other times when I'm happy to boost to help get visibility on a discussion or general question. All of which has been tremendously valuable thus far - SN is such a great community and I'm a big fan of everything you have/are building at SN. Looking forward to sending a mega-boost soon 😅🚀
That's a great idea! I wonder if you could allow users to customize how many ads they see to earn proportionately more. This is an interesting rewards model that Brave browser uses (you can choose how often you see ads)
Ads in the text based industry are very low yield. You can try playing play2earn games that are almost 100% ad watching for sats. It could make good income for the platform but not very good per user.
It’s just an idea. If users don’t make money from it, they would just never turn it on.
We are just trying to come up with ways for users to make more sats + given all the boosts that are happening, there’s demand to show stuff to them.
You're coming up with great stuff here @k00b
where exactly do you plan on positioning it? can each user choose? for me i won’t use unless I control where it sits on the ranking
It'd sit at the top probably. Sounds like you wouldn't Opt-in which is good feedback.
ya for me the best part of SN has always been how clean everything is but im kinda a aesthetic kinda guy
love that you gave that option for turning it off and on, this is how ads should be…think you might be onto something 💫
