"The New Internet - FREE VS FEE"

Written by A.T.Rendon

Continued from page 1

Their Basic FREE service is now little more than a Business Card Web Page, with ads inserted and a forwarding email address.

The next step up is their Charter service which allows members 35mb of disk space with a monthly fee of $7.95. On top of that, there is also a set-up fee of $7.95.

It is VERY doubtful that they will continue to boast of nearly 1 MILLION members.

Especially when you consider that there are still many web sites around that providerepparttar same level of service for FREE on which Bizland.com wants to start charging a monthly fee.

A survey in our FBCN newsletter clearly showed that 100% of our 282 respondents, would NOT pay a fee for service or content they can aquire elsewhere for FREE.

Perhaps some online businesses can get away with now charging a FEE for previously FREE services or content.

However, any business playing withrepparttar 119119 idea of changing their structure would do well to researchrepparttar 119120 competition.

The Internet was born on a FREE exchange of ideas.

I do feel we will NEVER seerepparttar 119121 complete removal of all FREE based services fromrepparttar 119122 Internet.

However, it is only natural to presume that some online businesses MUST charge a fee or cease to exist.

Which ones will depend onrepparttar 119123 unique type of service or content that they provide.

However, I predict thatrepparttar 119124 most valuable properties online will be those that have a business model based on BOTH FREE content and services, but with FEE based content and services that are much more enhanced.

The promise of a FREE service or content will continue to drive traffic to a web site. Once there, visitors will be givenrepparttar 119125 option of paying to receive PREMIUM or ENHANCED service and content.

That will berepparttar 119126 nature of , "The New Internet".
