(Nationwide)—There are a variety of website archetypes that can be utilized by online publishers to generate revenue.
In some of these website archetypes, the audience pays for the content. The audience members that end up paying for this content may be purchasing specific products, services or subscriptions to content that can be printed out and kept in the physical form.
Other subscription website models house content that allow publishers to charge for access to the subscription website. These subscription models are utilized to generate revenue through a continual renewal method. As long as a consumer continues his or her subscription, they can access the subscription website, which is constantly having new content added.
