Make money on Caffeine without a partnership program

Earlier this year I announced Caffeine, a new social broadcasting platform that’s simple to use, real-time and a lot of fun. The content our community is creating is truly amazing and we think it’s a great time to level up the entire experience.

Introducing 3D digital items — a new way to make money on Caffeine

Starting right now, broadcasters on Caffeine have the opportunity to earn money in a way that enhances broadcasts instead of detracting from the experience. Through the use of animated 3D items, viewers can purchase and use these items to enhance a broadcast and Caffeine will award the broadcaster Credits based on this activity. The broadcaster will soon be able to request to cash out Credits into real money. The best part: there’s no partnership required — this is open to everyone and your content won’t have to be exclusive to Caffeine.

You might be wondering why we decided to focus on digital items rather than take the more traditional advertising approach. We think there’s a greater opportunity for broadcasters to earn money this way than with advertising-based models for several reasons:

We can’t wait for you to give it a try and to let us know what you think. Send us your feedback at The entire team has worked really hard on this and we’re very excited to share it with everyone!

If you haven’t already, you can check out Caffeine at today or download our iPhone App. And of course, be sure to follow me on Caffeine too. ;-)
