CARDINAL COUPLE keeps on keeping on -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
I had an interesting discussion the other day with another UofL sports website owner and it evolved around the concept of having premium content.
As you well know, there are some web sites that give you "exclusive" inside-information for a fee on their "premium" boards. It is a money-maker for them and, although the news on them does get out to the mass public eventually, it gives subscribers first chance at it.
We have toyed with the idea of doing a "premium board" over the years but always decided against it. We are a non-profit, no-fee site that would rather earn our keep by having donors and sponsors instead of charging our readers for information by the month or year.
It's our call. Thanks to you...the sponsors and donors...we keep on keeping on. The early days of "out of Paulie's pocket" have ended. We're able to get down the sidewalk without having to go to the "information for a fee" tactic.
You can help us stay that way. At the top of the website, there is a link to PayPal. Help us that way if you choose. On "The Right Side of the Site" there is information where you can send a check.
We know there are a lot of places to distribute money these days. We appreciate whatever we get. We reach out to other charities and program if we're lucky enough to get a surplus. It's all about helping each other. Always has been here, and will always stay that way.
The person I had the discussion with is seriously considering going to a "pay for premium" concept. We are not.
