CrunchNotes asks What Web 2.0 Services Are You Paying For?.
It is amazing when I think about how many I’ve played with, and how few I’d pay for. I think the reason is because very few of the tools actually can be looked at as an investment in making me or my businesses more money.
People tend to pay for things that are so useful they’ve become a necessity, or things that are investments that will make them more money in the long run.
A few services are getting close to the “so useful it’s a necessity”, but not many of them yet are helping people either make money, or save money.
How come so few of these services are aimed at helping people make or save money?
And better yet, how come they all seem to rely on hoping to charge the user, or rely on Adsense for revenue?
