Is blogging a dead-end profession and business? (Reseaux et Editeurs de blogs)

It probably isn't a surprise that of the millions of blogs, the vast majority of active ones generate little to no revenue for their authors. For those who rely on their blogging to pay the bills and for and those who have started blog-focused businesses, however, the economics of blogging matter a whole lot. Earlier this week, I learned that Know More Media, a blog network, is allegedly going out of business and that Jeremy Wright, the CEO of b5media, which itself runs a large network containing several hundred blogs, had offered Know More Media bloggers an out. His proposal: "We will ask that you blog for $50 for the first month, while we ascertain the value and advertising potential of the blog. After that month, we will likely need to restructure the network (there’s a reason it wasn’t making any money), redo the pay structure and even let some bloggers go. But, if you let us, we will turn the network around and make it profitable. We are fully committed to doing what’s fair (and in many ways, being more than just fair)." While he shortly thereafter offered an alternative proposal, I was struck that the CEO of a respected blog network would suggest to any blogger that he or she blog an entire month for the paltry sum of $50.

Se mettre dans la tête des annonceurs (Etudes de cas Publicite en ligne)

Par Cedric Motte. Quand on gère un site de contenu, la pub fait partie du business model. Maintenant que le mirage Google Adsense est passé, il est probable qu'il faille prospecter intelligemment. La question pour un éditeur est donc de savoir quels sont les mécanismes qui font qu'un annonceur achètera chez lui. J'avoue, je ne suis pas annonceur donc cela peut paraître fantaisiste comme raisonnement. Ceci dit j'observe et l'idée est de lancer la discussion. Nous parlerons ici de sites à l'audience importante qui vont chercher des annonceurs importants (on parle en dizaines, centaines voir millions d'euros donc). (Etudes de cas Publicite en ligne)


"Free" Business Models and Freemium (Business Models du Web 2.0)

The market has extrapolated from Google’s success that most anything can be supported from advertising. Google (GOOG) succeeds for two reasons. First, they understand your intent when you do a search. Or with AdSense, at a *much* lower level of success, they attempt to glean your context. This is great for Google, which operates at an Internet-wide scale, but is not very effective for most of the websites that Google places ads on. So while Google can be hugely successful because of scale, most of us can't. Advertising without intent and without narrow context is a very inefficient way to generate revenue. If you can only generate a few cents a month from your average user, you have to have a lot of users. So most companies won't have a big enough audience to justify any venture capital. But in the gold rush, many VCs are investing in things that they have no good reason to believe will ever scale to the level they can IPO or M&A. To be sure, the best VCs aren’t doing this, but there are plenty of VCs out there that are not Sequoia or Union Square. Freemium and the Psychology of "free" What about the freemium model? The idea of free, with an upsell, is great for some products. But far fewer things succeed with freemium than I think really should. Because unfortunately, a psychology has been created on the Internet that nothing should be paid for. This is a broad social issue that has most perniciously affected us in music, where we have a generation of kids with no compunction about stealing, They believe *everything* on the Internet should be free. Artificial abundance supports this psychology. (Business Models du Web 2.0)
