    Greeting Card Sites Equal Profits???

    Is there money to be made in Online Greeting Card sites? If so, where do they make their money?

    Does anyone here own one and if so, is it making you money?

    Thanks,

    Not much money.

    They have an untargetted demographic, most anyways... there are specialty ones, and so even in todays bad ad market the ads they can get are even worse.

    Actually, they can make quite a bit of money. I run a joke website, and many people say entertainment sites aren't worth having, but I disagree. I'm speaking in terms of humor/entertainment sites, putting greeting cards into that category.

    Sure, it may not make as much CPM, etc. as a targetted one, but it sure is a heck of a lot easier to promote.

    Thanks for the info. I own the 2 domains, "RomanticGreetings.com" and "FunnyMessages.com" and right now they just point back to my web site. Those two names together get more type-in hits than my other 1100 domains put together, so I thought they might be worth developing.

    Any suggestions on a premade script, or should I have someone create one?

    Thanks a ton,
