So glad to see this! I started messing around with the Onepager app a few months back with the same idea in mind. It’s nice to see someone making a go out of it. After seeing this I reached out to him and he’s sharing some of his pricing strategies. This could be interesting. Lots of mom and pop businesses in my area with poorly designed, SEO unfriendly, expensive(!) websites. Could be a market there.tags: entrepreneur • inspiration • onepager | category: Strategy
Fascinating article about the business end of the WordPress ecosystem. Mullenweg’s dedication to his original ideals is truly inspiring. So much recent press has been given to the tribulations of twitter and facebook, as they try to squeeze every last cent out of their users. Mullenweg took quite a different approach and has now ended up with a vibrant, sustainable business that supports a vast network of freelance designers, developers, and content producers.tags: entrepreneur • wordpress | category: Strategy
Up to 70 percent of Fortune 500 companies registered .xxx domains over a 52-day period starting Sept. 7, says Lawley, who declined to name the companies. Their goal: to protect their brands from falling into the wrong hands.
I’ve been fascinated by the goings on of ICANN lately (and the controversy it’s causing). I was of the mind that the new domains would be great for creating new business ideas. But 70% of the Fortune 500 companies registered to protect their brands? Starting to sound like blackmail. It’s one thing to spend $100 a year to withhold the .xxx, but spending 185K for the new domains is going to get pricey.tags: domain names • entrepreneur | category: Strategy
It’s like Facebook is just going to toss all of these great star-tups and great ideas into the Facebook funnel and make Facebook sausage out of . Also can’t help thinking that this is a Gen Y phenomenon. Gen X’ers don’t sell out quite as easily.tags: entrepreneur • facebook | category: Strategy
This is interesting. Magazine/blog style site with loads of content that is owned by P&G (and produced by an outside media company). This is the first I’ve taken notice of something like this although I suspect there are lots of these lurking around the net. A corporation owning content just for the sake of advertising their own products.
This could bode well for small potato publishers (or slightly big time bloggers). The question is how do you pay for so many writers? And is that value ultimately transferred to advertising? I found it as a paid linked from USweekly.com.

Great example of how an indie writer self publishes on Amazon and makes money by selling for less and increasing the volume.tags: entrepreneur | category: Strategy
