Types of Bonuses
Let’s talk bonuses.
With Dreame, you get 3 major bonuses – sign-up bonus, daily bonus, and completion bonus.
The Sign-Up bonus
You get the Sign-up bonus after your book is signed with Dreame exclusively (they don’t offer non-exclusive contracts currently). Once you have uploaded over 30,000 words for it, you automatically get the bonus deposited into your account. Well, technically, you get it on the 1st of the following month, but you get what I mean. The Sign-Up bonus is 50$.
The Daily Update bonus
You get the Daily Update bonus (DUB for short) after your book is signed and you have updated it every single day in the span of 1 month (counting from the 1st date of the month). You may miss 2 updates only during that month. You also must publish over 50,000 words during that month to qualify for this bonus. The Daily Update bonus is 150$. If your story is really long and you have already claimed DUV 3 times for the same story, you can continue to claim the DUB only if your story has become Pay-to-read and its earnings (writer’s part) are above 20 USD per month.
The Completion bonus
You get the Completion bonus after you finish writing your story and apply for completion. Once your editor approves it, the story is marked as complete and you are given a bonus depending on the word count of your story. For 100,000 to 299,999 words, you get 150$. For books longer than 300,00 words, you get paid 500$. Stories below 100,000 words don’t qualify for the Completion bonus.
Depending on how your story is doing and where is it put, you can get royalties for advertisement, subscriptions, audiobooks, comics, paperbacks, etc. How much you get depends on the % in your contract and how much the story earns.
For those who sign with Dreame as exclusive writers (this means you can only write for their platform and usually the contract is for 3 years), you can get a ‘Remuneration bonus’ the size of which can vary depending on the writer and the quality of their work. This is a bonus you get every month as long as you publish over 60,000 words (it can be counted from several stories, as long as they are signed).
I hope this helps you understand the bonuses a little better. If you have any questions, you can leave a comment below or reach out to me 🙂
