I have collected alot of photoshop brushes/vectors that I plan to share on my website. (~10.000 images) What do you think the most profitable way to run a site like this? Should I charge for my product or give it away and focus more on building traffic and make money on affiliate links and ads? alt 1: The classic - Pay a few dollars to download a brush set. Subscribing is optional. alt 2: Getting subscribers - All downloads are free (if visitors sign up for newsletter.) alt 3: Crowdsourcing - Users get access to all downloads in return for a favour (like linking to my site) So what is the best alternative in the long run?
