Chris Brogan talks about unique perspective on how to make money with your blog. Loosely translated from a recent interview, he advises never to ask your community for money, but rather ask the larger corporations for money. By not asking your community directly for money, they in turn will seek you out. He notes that Oprah is successful example of that. When she recommends a book or product, people rush out to buy it on her referral.
If you find this at all intersting, I suggest reading “Trust Agents” by Chris Brogan and Julien Smith. Tell me what you think.
