Ad revenue sharing
Though Found My Spot is only just beginning, Found My Spot is growing and to make it grow faster, I intend to connect all of my contributors into the ad revenue stream. How much each author will get, is yet to be decided but it will be more than fair. I cannot though promise that it will be allot if all anything, it all depends on how much visits the article gets, how many articles have been published by you and how many of those visitors click through on the ads on those articles. You, as an author, will though get a link (once the ad revenue share starts) which you can share on your social media and/or where ever you like which will help you divert more visitors to your article and hopefully help you earn some ad revenue.
As stated here above, this program has not yet started. Authors will be alerted as soon as it starts. please note, though there might start to show ads on the website, it can take time until there is any kind of revenue stream, when that ad revenues start to tick in, you as an author, will be alerted as soon as possible.
