Monetizing Online Communities

This is a presentation to ConnectNow in Sydney 2010. It’s really about “what is money” – the community requirements, how community uses money, that all money even “real” money is virtual.

I’ll probably put more up once I actually GIVE the presentation. It’s just that I promise people at conferences that I’ll put the preso up on my blog and then I go to drinks and dinner and the next thing I know a week has passed and – the curse of timely content – the subject is dead.

  2. I used chipin for Aaron Kim’s going away lunch. It was a simple and effective way to collect money globally. I was happy with it, but I found my needs were alot less than yours.

    So, for simple collections, it may be fine.

    My biggest beef was Paypal, who took a huge percentage (IMHO). But with chipin, I was happy.

  3. Yes Bernie I think you’re right, it probably works well for a simple collection but maybe not suited to a long term fundraiser.

    And Paypal did seem to take a hefty chunk of fundraising dollars, even more for dollar conversion.

    Thanks for your comment Bernie, as always!
