Incentive Program Review

Points:

Every review on Web Fiction Guide or Muse's Success is worth 5 points.

Every web subscription (twitter, e-mail alerts, or RSS) is worth 4 points.

Every link exchange is worth 3 points.

Each initial comment on a NEW story page is worth 2 points.

1 dollar equals 2 points.

5 dollars equals 5 points.

10 dollars equals 10 points.

20 dollars equals 20 points.


At the end of the week, if 10 points are collected there will be a parody. 15 points will get a bonus story. 20 points will get two episodes for the upcoming update instead of one.


Single donations:

If a single person donates $5, they get a parody of their choice.


If a single person donates $10, they are allowed to chose a character to be shown in a bonus story.


If a single person donates $20, they are allowed to choose a story written about two characters or a non-canon pairing. (PG-13 ratings only at the moment)


I think that the price of the incentive being so low will be pretty effective. How may people are willing to chuck in a buck for the greater good? I can't wait to see how this works out for you.


Wow, really comprehensive and creative point system! I hope it works out. :)


I'll let you know how it goes. I'm going to do some fine tuning and launch it in April.


This DOES seem like a pretty good, straight-forward points system. Please keep us appraised!

Here's my updated incentives program. I raised the little prices because I really don't have the time to do a bonus story or two episode update (because my buffer has some holes in it) but if people really wanted me too I can and I will.


I took down the donation thing frankly because there's not enough posted to ask for donations and stuff. Maybe when I get to thirty chapters I'll ask. (Most of my buffer is up to 25 so it's not absurd).


So far, it's working well. Everyone is two points away from a parody, but I need the votes so that I can figure out which parody people want.


If you want to get in on the action, you can read and write a comment or if you just want to see the parody choices, go a head and vote.


There is always enough posted to give people the option to donate. Maybe not enough to make specific pleas or to expect anything, but giving people the option doesn't hurt. You work hard, right? People might wanna pay you, but only if you let them. I would say to leave the option to give "skrilla." Can't hurt.
