So, I have been working on this idea for a while... I personally consider trying to sell software as a stupid idea, so I tried figuring out other ways of making money from it. My idea is making it ad powered. And yes, I know that has been used before, but I think I thought of something new. The software itself is free. The user has a limited amount of time to use the software. When that expires, they have to watch an ad. Let's say (I am making all numbers up) 30 seconds of ads every 15 minutes. You can binge watch ads to store up to 500 minutes. If you don't have internet connection, or you somehow block ads, you get your "usage time" for watching a black screen. Yes, I know that gives me no money, but ads are server-dependend and I can't risk a terrible DRM. To encourage you to actually view them, you need to stare at the black screen for 90 seconds (tripple) to get your 15 minutes of usage time. And finally, to really encourage you, I would be willing to pay you. Let's say you get 5% of the money I get from your ad views. Conclusion: Free to use, you get paid for using it and I get income from ads. Thoughts?
