Someone Had to Try It

Roger Ebert is experimenting with an idea to monetize his website content by charging people to join a special club. Members get extra content and access to him at his events.

We all need to find ways to make money writing online. If Ebert can't do it, I suspect that very few of us can. I'll be watching to see how it works.

  1. "Access to him..." I doubt I could charge for that.

  3. Per your suggestion, I did read about his business model. I figure if I charged $5 per club membership, that would come to (hmmm, multiply by five, carry the one...) $15. But only if I offered prizes.
