    Hi Nick!

    Currently there is no way to build a gadget and earn revenue, however, this is something I understand is being considered for the future.  Having said that it is possible to build a gadget that requires a user/password combo, so under a subscription model it might be possible to use a gadget to enable access to content.

    The key benefit of a gadget is "stickiness" or giving your users another way to get content in front of users and keep them coming back.

    I hope this helps!
