When we launched Product Portals, we did so with a model of a 50/50 revenue share. However, with sites like IceCreamMaker.com racking up $1,200 in monthly net, and Epik-developer Kenny Hartog now operating more than 500 Epik-powered sites, the monthly revenues quickly become material. It is time for Epik to up the ante.
Introducing increased revenue shares for Product Portals
When we started building portals, the idea of 50/50 revenue share made sense to us. We figured most folks would do as we do and want to re-invest what they earn. What we discovered is that different network partners have different objectives in terms of allocation of operating cash flow.
Many Epik network partners are very clear in their objective in terms of monthly operating cash flow. For example, a number of independent portfolio managers are looking for $10,000 in monthly cash flow. The sooner they get there, the sooner they quit their day job. Makes sense to me.
With the new revenue-share model, the more your portfolio makes, the more you keep. It is all out there — 100% transparent. Here is what it looks like:
Introducing 100% Revenue Share Minisites
In addition to improving payouts on Product Portals, we have also been taking a close look at our Minisite offering. For sophisticated developers who are doing things like traffic arbitrage, the economics of revenue share can become material in the planning on where and how to build. Minisites that Epik produces now have the option of using the owner’s own native ad feed or Adsense Publisher ID in order to capture 100% of the advertising revenue.
