Web Business Models

Making money from an idea. This is something most of us would like to learn more about. Dan Zamboni over at Box UK gives a nice breakdown of Web business models. Dan’s Web business model taxonomy is loosely related.

In general, Dan defines 2 top-levels “immediate” and “long-term”. The immediate (short-term) level breaks down into what we see in most Web revenue models –subscription based, one-time payments or 3rd-party (sponsor/partner/advertiser) supported. At the long-term level (do you have the patience?) the general idea is to build an audience before expecting any return — “Attract a substantial audience before monetizing”.

Now to figure out which ones are the most successful. What do you think?
