Why Not Ask for Donations? - Depending on the Kindness of Strangers
(Page 2 of 4 )
Many of those who create online content, from casual bloggers to professional Webmasters, include a donations link on their Web pages -- in effect, asking their visitors to contribute and create revenue for the site through their own charity. For some, this may seem like an ill-disguised attempt to beg for money. Is this something that will make your site look bad, or make you look needy? Isnít asking for money online sort of tacky and uncouth? After all, you donít want to put your visitors off the site!
Itís common practice for sites to offer pages and pages (and pages!) of online content to their users, which could include anyone from anywhere in the world. Sites go to a lot of trouble to find and create great content, to provide search engine-friendly keywords and to put it all together in pretty, pleasing designs which are easy to navigate.
Many Webmasters even go to the expense and the trouble of hiring writers, graphic designers and other professionals to help them with the day-to-day maintenance and content on their sites. All of it is done for no other reason than providing free content for as many visitors as possible.
So whatís wrong with asking traffic to fork over a little of their own cash to pay for it all? Why not ask for donations, and create revenue through charity?
