Monthly Revenue Stream ToonGoggles.com has a significant advantage. itâ€™s manufacturing partners get an ongoing monthly revenue stream. The ToonGoggles.com business model includes a monthly subscription fee of $4.99 for unlimited access to the site. Based on a revenue-sharing approach pioneered by Apple, the revenue generated by patrons who sign up on the manufacturerâ€™s gateway site will be shared with 10% of the subscription revenue and 20% of ad revenue going directly to the manufacturer. What this means for our partner companies, such as Sony and Panasonic, is that not only do they make money on each sale of their products, they also receive a monthly stream of revenue from ToonGoggles.com users signing up through their smart device or TV set. When the number of units sold rises, the ratio of subscribers increases. Along with this, the monthly revenue generated for the manufacturer increases as well. This is a profit opportunity for manufacturers to join the Toon Goggles family and share in its growth.
