Offer Incentives - Community Tip #9 on Educating Others About Web Monetization

For the adoption of the Web Monetization Standard and fostering appreciation and understanding as why it is important to support content creators through Web Monetization, education is needed. To help the Web Monetization Community, and past, present and future Web Monetization projects with educating their communities on the Web Monetization Standard, we've created this series, entitled Educating Your Community About Web Monetization.

Visit the links to the series above to explore pain points and community tips to educating others about Web Monetization.

Coil membership giveaways would be cool to get small portion of people gets started and to get their testimony first before recommending them to other people. I recalled Andrzej Mazur (@end3r ) did some giveaways for some participants for his games competition. Would be great if we can buy bulk membership giveaways directly from Coil dashboard somehow.

You can still reach out to Coil folks for the codes, but yeah, being able to just bulk buy a set would be so much easier. And yes, giving "test" accounts to devs made a huge difference, as they were able to debug the entries on their own before submitting to the competition.

Yeah, seems like getting them is in a must list when doing competition or other events.
