Interesting Business Models

Briefly:

1) SpiralFrog– Allowing users to download music for free, with advertising inserts. They have signed up Universal and are currently in beta.

2) Niche job advertising. 37 Signals blog– these guys have taken in $100,000 since April charging between $200 and $250 per ad for a 30 day listing. OmMalik’s site has also launched job listings.

3) YouTube’s revenue share announcement with Warner

I highlight these because they are online revenue models that are not dependent on Google Adsense. Obviously, as spending time online takes more of our (and younger generations’) time, these will become even more significant. Theresia Ranzetta talked through some of the online demographics in a PodTech podcast late last month.
