I'm just doing a bit of market research for my own websites. I've recently started some business and social networks as a way of generating revenue to keep me afloat as my usual business in web design/ web development has seriously gone down in recent times. The way my websites work is that I sell a 'platform' or advertising space for a small fee. I'm thinking the more users I get, the more chance I have of making a decent wage for myself. I'm just wondering about a few questions. I hope some of you can help me out. 1. Would you pay to place an advertisement online? 2. How much of an audience or a platform would you need to make it worth it? 3. Would you pay to post jobs? 4. Would you pay to view a booking sent to you via someone's website? It's a definite booking of course. 5. Do you think online advertising is worth it? Please let me know. By the way, I have a nice little payments system using paypal and ASP that allows users to pay for a service on your website and get something in return. If you are looking for this kind of system I can set it up for you.
