Education Ecosystem Changes Revenue Model to Focus on B2B Developer Relations as a Service Monetization

After running revenue model A/B testing in the last 3 months with B2C and B2B monetization, we decided to make the Education Ecosystem platform free for consumers (removing the subscription paywall) and instead charge businesses, by offering them developer relations as a service (DRaaS). The main reasons for switching to B2B monetization are that we realized there is a bigger revenue opportunity with B2B sales and removing the paywall will simplify our product and help grow the user base faster by providing unlimited content access to all viewers.


Developer Relations as a Service (DRaaS)


We offer tech companies Developer Relations as a Service (DRaaS). Through this service we help them to reach their target audience in the most cost effective way.
