Monday, October 3, 2011 - 11:00am

Live365 Pro PointsInternet radio network Live365 has introduced an ad revenue sharing program to reward operators of popular stations.

An impression is one listener hearing an ad once (ten listeners each hearing ten ads is 100 impressions).

Impression points carry over each month and don't reset until the operator has reached the 500,000 points needed for the $1,000 reward. Station operators can opt-in or opt-out of the system at any time.
