Its really cool seeing people from all over the world using something you’ve built. Actually we think over half of our users are outside the U.S. Teachers are posting classroom curriculum. Students are making online book reports. Bands are creating their online presence. Gamers are creating fan pages. And of course there is some other stuff in there we have to remove from time to time that’s’ not PG-13 rated. :) A lot is being published and its become impossible for even us to track.
Our next challenge is trying figure out a business model that makes sense. Fortunately though since everything is so darn cheap to run on the Amazon cloud platform we haven’t really felt pressured to do so, focused more on product and kept the service free. Premium subscription pricing seems to be the way we’ll go, much more attractive than advertising, but we’ll probably try that to. Maybe I’ll post again when we hit 50K users, that’ll be something!
