One Story Stud
For one quarter (3 months for the guys and gals without green visors) your story is up for individual downloading, like songs on iTunes. Hit 25 downloads: you get 25% of the profit. It’s simple, until 25 individual downloads, you see nothing. At 25 downloads, you get one-quarter of the profit on those downloads. Now you’re getting paid. Hit 50 downloads: you get 50% of the profit on downloads 25-50. From 25 to 49 downloads, you’re still making 25%, but hit 50 and the last 25 downloads jump up to making you 50% of the profit. Hit 100 downloads: you get 100% of the profit on the remaining downloads. This is your story and you earned it – after 100 downloads, the profit goes straight to your pocket.
The Full Jackpot:
One story stud is a solo effort, but the full issue is a team bet. This is the one game when the house is betting on you. If we hit a jackpot, everyone wins, including the readers. Full issue hits 250 downloads: the contributors split 25% of the profits on the full issue. This is a partial jackpot and nothing to be ashamed of. Full issue hits 500 downloads: everyone wins. The contributors and 1 lucky reader split one-third of the profits on the full issue. You hit the full Jackpot, baby. Celebrate, have one on the house.
The numbers to hit: 25 , 50 , 100 , 250
