Fundraising is not always the answer

Tweaking your business model

One of the many mailing lists I subscribe to is Denny Hatch's weekly 'Business Common Sense' newsletter. Denny has a great writing style and even if the topic isn't always my cup of tea, I always find his articles interesting. Anyway, this week Denny writes about how the impact of the recession and how old business models have changed. Denny thinks too much is given away free and people are becoming too reliant on advertising revenue (mainly via Google) for revenue. He gives 7 examples of what he calls 'Nutsy-Fagen' business models. I wrote earlier this week about what I see the future of fundraising being and not sure I completely agree with Denny, but still well worth a read.
