Some People Pay For Content
from the but-just-a-few dept
A new study shows that (not all that suprisingly) a few sites out there are gaining some traction in getting people to pay for online content. However, most people are still unwilling to pay. The article lists some of the sites that get the most traction. They list NCSoft’s site as the biggest one, though, I’m not sure if I’d really count that. They’re really talking about players of the Lineage video game (mostly in Asia). Second on the list is Classmates.com, who has been charging people from the very beginning. They also mention dating sites as getting a lot of people to pay. The one that still surprises me, though, is the number of people who pay for American Greetings to use their electronic cards. There are still plenty of free online greeting card sites, so I don’t really understand the incentive to go with the pay versions.
