    Would you pay for content?

    I'm considering starting up a site that deals with marketing and promotion content..as well as business tips and helpful information for both novices and experts alike. My questions is.. if the work were of a high quality standard, and the content inexpensive, would you pay to download it?

    The topic confused me... I thought it was to pay for content to put on my site. Which I would do if it was high quality and inexpensive and if I had that money.

    But, I suppose you meant buying content to read, etc. And I would depending on the topic, etc.

    I would probably do so, but I would like to see what I could be expecting first. I doesn't need to be a free download, it could as well be a summary of the article / content I am about to read. I just need something to judge the quality of the piece of content I am about to buy on, to give me a little insurance that it is worth the money.

    Sounds like a great idea though !!

    I would also eventually make it so that you could put it on your site

    I would pay for it if I thought it was worth it, and heard good things about it. I probably wouldn't without hearing good comments from someone I trust~!

    Oops - it appears that I too was confused by the topic. I voted yes.

    But as for paying to be able to read articles - I would actually not do so unless I knew and trusted the author quite well. Therefore I think there'd have to be a lot of free information that I could get familiar with first.
