As of March 2020, Quid is no longer in operation.
Raise your hand if you like passive income. We all like to make money, especially content creators who work so hard to create content for our readers. In fact, any website owner knows that passive income is the best thing since sliced bread. As a blogger and website owner, every bit of extra money from another revenue stream is welcome income.
Thanks to QUID for sponsoring this conversation on monetization. As always, all opinions are my own.
QUID is a Canadian startup tech company that developed a micro-payments processing system that allows content creators like me to accept tiny donations and small payment from readers and fans without the associated high fees. Bloggers can earn extra revenue by monetizing website content through the use of a widget on their website in addition to (or instead of) the use of ads. You sign up for a free account, and as the end-user, you get to decide how you
incorporate QUID on your website.
Let your fans support you with QUID
One of the best aspects of QUID is that you can earn extra revenue by adding a QUID payment widget to your website. You can empower your fans with the option to support your work, with no hassle or pressure for fans to contribute. You have the ability to customize the QUID payment buttons, sliders, or penny walls to match your brand and track your earnings all in your dashboard. QUID is the perfect way to earn extra income on your blog.
Why using QUID helps content creators
As a content creator, we spend hours creating content—like recipes and printables—that our readers and other Internet users find, read, and often download for free. Sometimes content is sponsored and sometimes blog and websites run ads as a means to make a little revenue, but QUID is another means to earning extra revenue. For growing creators, QUID offers a unique pay-per-use model, with no hassle or pressure, for fans to support you.
