Amazing post. Well researched and simplified.

Anders

It would be very interesting to follow this over time and also look at the financial results from the "Top Web apps". Also, comparing similar sites with similar content using different business models such as I.T.A vs I.S.V would be very interesting. Anyone knows any research?

Nice survey - thanks for this valuable info!

Very topical right now, obviously, with newspapers falling like flies and flailing around in search of a business model that works and doesn't involve dead trees.

Paul Marion

What a valuable post and great way to see the popular business models today. Thanks for sharing.

Fred H Schlegel

It's not surprising that advertising has such a high percentage of models, given the ease the model can be set up and the low barrier that sets on getting 'customers.' I was surprised at how few IPP (physical product) models their actually were. I'm with Anders in wondering if the revenue numbers would significantly change the look of this chart.

Simplified?

I think, it's more complicated...

Thank you for sharing this. This is the first time that I see that kind of study on startups.

Subbaraman Iyer

Well, all this models are fine, but at the end of the day, are these business models sustainable and provide shareholder value.

Facebook is an interesting case study as it is the poster boy of social networking. I have described the business challenges that they face at: http://subbaiyer.wordpress.com/2009/03/31/facebooks-positive-and-unique-problem/

I've recently started exploring the world of e-books, and it is striking that even a switched on retailer like Amazon is pursuing a totally outdated business model. Charging $15 or more for an e-book? Ridiculous. The distribution and printing costs just dropped to zero - and the first publishing house to realise that can cut retailers (including Amazon) out of the loop entirely. For the first time direct sales from the publishers are a possibility - which they are ignoring.
The result of overpriced digital books? Irritation and piracy.
The intro on the Baen free books library makes a good point - people only turn to piracy when the legitimate option is overpriced. Now is the time to stop that market from being created in the first place - by dropping the prices to a reasonable level.

This is a cool study. One interesting additional would be to show the increase or decrease in each different model. For example is I.S Subscription model actually gaining or losing ground compared to previous data?
Thanks,

I find these business models very interesting, in particular their creativity and variety. However, I have a problem with labeling them as "free."

Хайям призывает вас в Ислам

Он разделяет свои рубаи на две группы:

*первая группа для "искателей" и очень привлекает людей (тех,которые любят вино,женщин и для людей,которые не верят в бога).

*вторая группа для Лидерство, руководствующие людей(прямой путь-маленькое писание и непрямой путь - большое писание).

Маленькое писание (не очень важное):

*если у тебя есть только кусок хлеба и кувшин воды, это достаточно для тебя и ты не нуждаешся ни в чём другом.

*ты должен жить в этом мире как следует,так как этот мир короткий и он принадлежит Богу.

* если ты живешь в этом мире хорошо,я вознагражу тебя вином в раю,т.к. в раю бог дает мне вино и я раздаю его людям.

Хаям говорит: "Когда я умру, мой прах обмойте вином, а если захотите искать меня в раю, то найдёте у стен кабака"

Большое послание (очень важное):

Не дайте писанию, девушке и вино "умиреть" и книга.
Коран - это великая книга,но вино ещё лучше.
