How can I monetize a talk like TED?
I am currently working along side with Phillips Healthcare's Education portfolio in providing continuous medical education on different specialties of Healthcare (Cardiology, Physiology, Oncology, etc.) in the UAE. I would like ideas on how to incorporate medical education tourism and a TED talk in the Middle East region and monetization options.
Regarding monetisation of an actual TED talk you should keep the following in mind:
"TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). " quoted from their website.
That aside monetising conferences is usually done with sponsors and selling advertisement opportunities.
Leroy: I concur with Daniël A.D. Berckenkamp, monitization in the medical education arena is normally done via sponsorships (and to a lesser extent advertising). I would also consider a paid-access membership program.
With TED being non profit, there are ways to create partnerships that benefit both parties. It all depends on the legislation of each organization.
