In order for the app itself to make money, there have to be either ads or some sort of payment by its users. The second of which doesn’t sound fun. I think there should be ad banners on the homepage every 10-20 videos or so. Then artists can also have the option to put ad banners on their profile too. A lot of times viewers will go directly to the profiles of their favorite creator to watch their videos, so having a banner at the top of the profile or in between videos would allow the artists to make money as well.
A button on the artist’s profile that allows sponsors to contact them with offers would be helpful as well.
And being able to donate directly to your favorite artists would be great too! Maybe a small portion of the donation could go to V2? @dom
