Why Not Ask for Donations?
(Page 1 of 4 )
Everybody loves the fact that the Internet is free. Then again, not everybody realizes how much work goes into building even the simplest web sites. If you're creating a web presence for the first time, you're probably painfully aware of it. You don't have to just give all of your effort away; you can ask for donations to help you keep going.
Before you dismiss the idea as crazy, stop to think about it. It takes a lot of time to create even a very basic Web site. First, you’ve got the find the perfect host. Some Web hosts may charge money (which you’ll have to pay out of your own pocket to provide), while some offer free sites (with some stipulations regarding advertising).
Next, you’ve got to settle on a great-looking design (which costs another time investment, and might even require you to hire a professional). You spend hours working on easy navigation to keep visitors happy, and give up even more time putting together great content to entertain all that traffic you hope to get.
You take a lot of steps and put a lot of effort into giving them great pages, into creating a good-looking and highly entertaining Web site. Then, you don’t even charge any fees to allow visitors to admire all your hard work at their leisure.
Why not ask for donations, and ask your visitors to contribute something monetary for a change? Your site certainly wouldn’t be the first to create revenue through charity.
