What do you think of a site that takes the angle of saying, "I'm not an expert, but I know a few things. Let's become experts together." I'm thinking of doing something along those lines in a near future project. Raj,

Dee: The question is, do people trust free content enough to attribute it the value it deserves? Sometimes not. But yet, a business' blog is not the place to test the paid model, so only the free model is left. However, that doesn't mean there can't be some sort of additional membership offer. It just has to be offered carefully. Anthony, thanks as always for the link nod. Hi Dee and Anthony, thanks for dropping by and commenting.

I especially like your recommendation to move the advertising part of the effort to a separate cover, so as not to spam the customer right from the get go with flashing "Click here!" ads.

I find that I'm always impressed when a business starts a blog and gives away valuable free content in their posts. This leads to higher trust and more mindshare, which translates to many sales in the long term. Thanks for the link too. Great points.
