Icon Font Monetization

over 7 years ago from , Product Designer & Prototyper

Hey guys, I'm currently working on custom icon font (something like streamlineicons.com) because I need some special icons for one of my projects. I also find it as a good exercise because I've never done it before and it's pretty fun too!

However I'm pretty curious about monetization once it'll get bigger (planning to have 200+ icons in a month). I know plenty of creative marketplaces but what about revenues? Is it worth to put it in there and expect at least some return? Or rather give it for free and get recognition (pay by tweet, etc.)? I certainly don't want to become rich by doing it but would love to hear some stories and numbers if anybody here has done it before. Quora, googling etc. didn't give me any information about that.
