A revenue stream is the methodology a company follows to get its customer segments to buy its product or service. A revenue stream can be created through the following ways:

  1. Asset Sale: the company sells the right of ownership over the goods to the customer.
  2. Usage Fee: the company charges the customer for the use of its product or service.
  3. Subscription Fee: the company charges the customer for the regular and consistent use of its product or service.
  4. Lending/ Leasing/ Renting: the customer pays to get exclusive access to the product for a time-bound period
  5. Licensing: the company charges for the use of its intellectual property.
  6. Brokerage Fees: companies or individuals that act as an intermediary between two parties charge a brokerage fee for their services.
  7. Advertising: a company charges for others to advertise their products using their mediums.

When setting up revenue streams, it is important to recognize that an effective price for the product and/or service will be arrived at through the process of elimination.
