A catch phrase will go here soon.

Revenue sharing comes to Mahalo Answers


Mahalo Answers is about to launch something really innovative I believe: We are going to start sharing Google AdSense revenue with our Mahalo Answers community in the form of our virtual currency, Mahalo Dollars. 

The way it will work is that the person asking the question will receive up to M$100 in revenue sharing and the best answer will get up to M$100 in Adsense revenue. 

What this means is that you might make M$100 ($75 US) for just ASKING a good question…. you might also get up to that amount for getting the best answer. This is, of course, in addition to the virtual currency (Mahalo Dollars) put on questions already. 

This is part of my overall vision to match virtual currency to knowledge exchange, content, UGC and search. The reason Mahalo rocketed to #150 on Quantcast and 15m uniques and operational breakeven is because of this new(er) vision.

    I think it is brilliant. Seems like a natural progression for the site.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
