“What did you spend?” Heh. 😉
For Cullect, the benefit of this model have been obvious: even with a small number of paying customers – the servers are being paid for from subscription payments. For such a highly niche service with nearly no marketing effort – I’m declaring it a success.
On the Cashboard project I mentioned yesterday, I’m building toward a subscription model even more true to the above diagram. It seems like the right, most interesting, most challenging, and most sustainable, direction.
All the things that I expect to see from the other web apps launching in 2009.
I started building up new project today, one of the 2 initial revenue generating projects on my 2009 list. While it’s a way from launching, much of the heavy lifting was completed today. Conceptually, I’ve been using a proof-of-concept of this project for a couple years now. Oh, and I spent waaaay to long looking for domain names for it. The Code Name thus far has been ‘Cashboard’ – but since it’s not available, it needs to be changed.
