    Just joined this forum and have spent a few hours looking around.

    I've developed a simple to use web app for building time-limited throw-away mobile-friendly "mini" sites suitable for small businesses (eg to go with an offline ad, flyers etc) and individuals (adult contacts jumps to mind).

    I'm hoping to learn how to monetize it here.

    I can see a few possiblilities in principle like

    - giving it away for free in return for putting on ads;

    - monthly fee that others can add value to and sell on to businesses as a service;

    - joining forces with someone else (or more) with complementary strengths to turn it into something really serious, etc.

    But whatever I do I need to get to grips with marketing or I'm going to get nowhere!

    This looks like a great place to learn.

    Thanks aheebs. I think I've got something valuable - but I've really got to do something with it now.

    I've got 80/20 pinned on the wall above me - lesson no. 1 that's got to become 2nd nature somehow.

    No commitment. Cheap. Can be used just to put an ad up in a shop window etc. Anonymous. Won't be left lying around to embarrass the owner in the future.

    Doesn't have to be thrown away, of course.
