First of all, please get rid of google, please. They have eyes enough in the centralized world, let me rest in peace here. :)
Instead of Google, you could start to use Nfogix. It's an encrypted tracker, and you are truly the only one with access.
Suggestion: Give users the option to add their own tracking code on-top. PLEASE :)
Let's be honest - Google Ads are awful, and I doubt they make Steempeak enough money. Ever.
Suggestion: Sponsorships Widget.
See how ReadCash does it.
Basically there is a Sponsorship widget under every post, and sponsors can apply to get their banner&link added.
- 10%(5% with ref) Steempeak
- 5% Referral
- 90% User
That way we all have an incentive, and sponsors have the potential to be seen on a lot of posts. Also, with tracking stats it's easier to approach potential investors.
Copy ReadCash, they have the absolute right idea about how to do this.
On sign-up 5% beneficiary set to the affiliate. Bonus add it as metadata, so other frontends can follow suit.
Here's the kicker though: User can pay their way out of the 5% share.
- 5% > 4% price: 1 STEEM (10% to Steempeak, 90% Affiliate)
- 4% > 3% price: 10 STEEM (10% to Steempeak, 90% Affiliate)
- 3% > 2% price: 100 STEEM (10% to Steempeak, 90% Affiliate)
- 2% > 1% price: 1000 STEEM (10% to Steempeak, 90% Affiliate)
- 1% > 0% price: 1000 STEEM (10% to Steempeak, 90% Affiliate)
Just as an idea. This way Steempeak (or any other frontend, looking at you @esteemapp ) has an incentive, and this would end up as a win-win for every party.
Not Sure If
Possible, but let me "stake" my account creation credits. Anyone that signs-up using them (via a queue system) should be assigned as the sponsors referral (if there was none set).
I would also like to have the option to "gift" the account to people signing up under my referral link...
Anyways, those are just ideas and suggestions, I hope Steempeak and other frontends can get some inspiration from it :)
