Release Asset Monetization Tools via Application Approvals
I request Horizon open monetization tools to a wider audience, or to those active in monetization programs. As a user that mans multiple monetization programs, Metaverse monetization is the one my audience wants to see and the one I cannot rightfully promote.
I am not seeing its promotion elsewhere either. The press that followed the release was great, but then fell off and saw zero following press.
People come seeking those particular tools and then cannot find them. As increasing the user base via consistently incoming new users is a priority, I would say providing the users with incentive to stay. Many users follow me into the metaverse from social media, believing they can directly earn. They cannot yet.
The largest problem I can envision is age restrictions and abuse of the system. This could be circumvented with a simple Google form, as has been done in the past. If a feature is this well controlled, allowing Meta to retain the right to vet those they'd give access to.
I propose releasing the features for a number of positive benefits:
Offset the hefty community responsibilities put onto leadership via sustaining their voice through their own hard work.
Increase the user base.
Only accept age-appropriate or vetted users.
Allow users to grow and provide for themselves via their Metaverse ventures.
Create new leaders to continually lighten the load lifted by community leadership.
Further community trust and inclusion by finally opening access.
Increase overall time in headset and retention, by creating a reason for money-driven users to stay in headset.
Finally, I know this would dramatically increase the time and hours I personally put toward Horizon. If I could focus on earning income inside of the platform, I won't have to spend as many hours stabilizing myself outside of it.
This is my official request to release these features in an appropriate manner.

The ability to make real money will drive Metaverse growth. It's as simple as that. Without it, we're only dabbling in a casual gaming and educational platform.

The ability to apply and be reviewed for a partnership. My world is top 12 in Horizon World's and there are creators with the buy button that gets zero traffic. I want to be able to make money as well. I had 4,000 different people come in my world in a week. Why I'm not eligible for Go Crazy Theme Park? Please review this

I have 2 successful games running on the platform right now and I have so many other ideas for worlds/games, but not enough time. My ultimate goal would be to support myself and my family by becoming a full-time creator on this platform. It’s so much fun! But there definitely needs to be more incentive for creators to stay. Monetization tools would take this platform to the next level!

This seems like the e next logical step! Let’s get this moving!

Meta would be making serious income off the taxes transactions, I don’t think they know the 1000s being moved around outside the platform because they don’t monetize more creators…

Yes please. I have been asking for this as well! One huge reason that I am not in there more now... is due to not being able to monetize from my work. I think Meta would be extremely happy with the results that we would be pumping out once money is involved. It provides an incentive to do good work as we have seen countless times here. I think this will be a great addition and hope that we can add this ASAP.

I voted that this is critical ! Right they talked about users being able to earn with art and things in the Metaverse it would be great if they made this happen now. I know things take time but they should at least get some programs started! Plus like you said it would make users spend more time in there, and then also more new users will join if they know they can earn for being creative.
