I have been thinking for some time about how to create some income to cover my bandwidth and production costs for Winecast. After the iTunes launch, my traffic has increased 400% and I will have to pay for additional server bandwidth to keep the show available. Not a problem for me, but should this trend continue, I will need to think about ways to start to cover these costs. For those who donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t understand the economics of a website, the owner pays a monthly fee for a fixed amount of downloads from the site per month (commonly referred to as “bandwidth”). Since audio files are relatively large in size, this adds up fairly quickly.
So I’d like your help in deciding what to do here. On the right menu I have placed a short poll with every money generating idea I could think of to support the show’s costs. Have a look and vote for the option you would support. Be honest, please. This does not mean that I will abide by the majority vote, but I wanted to get a sense for your opinion. I will be talking a bit more about this on my next episode to be posted shortly.
Thanks in advance for your help!
