Monetizing Your Streaming Video Content

Advertising: DaCast is the only video streaming platform with an extensive inventory of ads for you to choose from. The process is simple; just find the right ad using targeted keywords, select the format, frequency and placement and you’re ready to monetize your content.
Subscription: If a provider has content such as featured events they want to broadcast periodically or on a set schedule, DaCast will allow your users to sign up for a subscription service. All you need to do is define the rates and payment schedule. DaCast’s Premium Manager will handle all the payments and transactions while you’ll collect new revenues every month.
Pay-per-view: If you have a special event or one-time video stream you want to show to a specific audience, a pay-per-view price may be best for your viewers. In that case, all you have to do is specify the duration of the event/broadcast and the price you want to charge. Like the subscription model above, DaCast will handle all the payment transactions and security so you just collect the revenues.
