In the good old days, publishers created content and ads paid the way. But Internet ads are quickly becoming yesterday’s news. Ad blocking has grown significantly over the last few years. Now over 500 million people use software to stop ads on their mobile and desktop devices.
Without some change, smaller publishers could disappear and larger publishers' staff will continue shrinking.
Today, your visitors want minimal ads but you want maximum return for your great content. Brave gives both sides what they want.
How does it work? Readers may choose a monthly contribution amount which is divided among the publisher sites they visit most. And as Brave grows, so does your revenue.
Here is the best part. Neither the readers nor the publisher need to do anything different. They just keep surfing and you just keep publishing.
Well, one small detail... you do need to collect your cash.
Once a user enables Brave Payments, the Brave browser automatically and anonymously keeps track of the publisher sites each user visits. The more times that a user visits a site, the larger the proportion of the user’s monthly contribution is “ear-marked” for that publisher. These funds grow as new micropayments are added. When contributions for a publisher exceed $100.00 USD, an email is sent to both the webmaster of the site and the registered domain owner from your WHOIS information. The email explains how to verify the ownership of your website with Brave Software.
Brave Software uses a process similar to verifying a domain name to verify publisher sites. Just follow these steps:
A strong percentage of web users want to pay for content and support the Internet. But the Internet moves fast and so do users. The best way for users and publishers to stay in sync is through an anonymous and automated contribution platform. That’s Brave.
