I have a ten year established FREE site for readers and writers around the world. It was rebuilt on a laravel platform two years ago and is now running on Laravel version is 5.5 and php 7.1 . My site has never earned an income, but now I need to find a way to monetize my site, so I can afford to keep it going and growing. That's why I need your help.
One of the ideas I've had is to allow writers to boost their stories to the top of the page for a week at a time, for a small fee. (Only 3 boosted stories allowed at the top of each page/section, so it does not take up too much space, and also so that it is a more lucrative opportunity for writers.) I would like this boost feature to be set up for payment via Stripe and Paypal, which would need to be integrated into my site. I would also like it to work with the current points/rewards feature already being actively used by site members, so that writers can use their points to pay for boosts, and can receive points equal to their paid boost they can use next time. IE: buy one get one free, via points. (It might also be easier to just allow site users to purchase points they can then use to pay for things on my site, rather than paying any fees for anything with money. They earn points too, so if they want to buy something and don't have enough points they can wait till they earn them, or just buy the extra points they need. IF this would be an easier way to set up payment. ?)
Currently my site has one main reading category, and then numerous sub-categories. I need to offer boosts for all the categories that are available, in order to have any hope of recovering the funds to pay for it. So I want writers to be able to boost in different categories, and to charge different fees depending on the category. IE: MAIN category/pages is at the top of the 'read stories' section which can be accessed directly from the index tab. Then there are the 'true life' and 'fiction' categories, 3 age categories, and ten theme categories, plus many subject categories.
All these categories can be accessed from the front page, and from the site 'search' feature. So, when they choose to boost, they can choose their category with the associated fee. And perhaps choose multiple categories if they want to.
Please let me know if you have any questions about it, suggestions for improvement, or better ways to do it that might make things easier and less costly, and what the costs would be for you to do the work described. I am also open for any other ideas you have that might' help me turn my site from a money pit into something that can actually help me earn some income. Thank you
