After reviewing the original business model of the Entrecot restaurant I’d like to write today about a second original business model: blog micro transactions.
The idea is to write a blog post interesting enough so that people want to know more about the post topic. Then, as part of the post, you offer the reader to buy this “more” (a pdf with extended information, a more complete example, some technical details not explained in the post, etc) for a small price.
The best example of this is WildBunny that sells the source code that accompanies his technical articles (on how to make games). He explains his not-so-bad results with this strategy in this post. Definitely worth reading!
Most likely you won’t become rich with blog micro transactions but it’s a possible strategy to complement to your main revenue stream.
