The (endless) Web Monetization Summary Table! Start planning…

Have you ever opted to find all the answers you are looking for in just one place? Are you tired of visiting 30 or more websites to get the answers you are seeking: the how to’s, if’s and when’s to an issue of your interest? Well, your wish is our command: We are walking the extra mile for you :)

In this article, we will present you with all the unbiased and useful links, information and updates about the ins and outs of Web monetization; how intrusive Web 2.0 system monetization methods are, the most common utilized monetization methods and how successful are they. All you need to know about Website, Web application and Blog monetization is summarized with loads of links.

The six main monetization methods are listed in our humongous table below. In this table, we will be discussing, in details and with examples, how intrusive, successful and viable each of the monetization methods is in order to help companies, and start-ups in specific, develop an overall concept of what works most and why. We are attempting to summarize the 50+ articles we read, to help you cut through information clutter and develop a clear idea of your next move towards effective monetization planning.

Another method of monetization is allowing access to your unique dataset for statistical/marketing anlysis. Take Facebook advertising for example, it is light and non-intrusive from an interface perspective, and it guarantees privacy, by limiting possible information inference, through just giving general statistics for large numbers of users rather than to smaller groups. As mentioned in an article by Nial McFadyen of the VirtualMarketing Blog: “Facebook plan to give advertisers access to a wider of array of characteristics without exposing an individual’s personal information.

Finally, we hope that you’ve found this (quite long) summary helpful, and we would like your opinion on something: Will the current monetization tools become obsolete at a certain point in time and how soon do you think that will be?
