Understanding the profit from this? Help...

by 5 comments
I am trying to understand this when it comes to advertising...

Take this large site: www.weddingchannel.com

Majority of their money comes from the following:

Ad space, shopping, affiliate links ect....

Where I am getting stuck is if you look at the list of vendors they have for say dresses, decorations, cakes ect.. some of these don't have affiliate programs...

Otherwise meaning... how is the weddingchannel getting a profit from listing all of these?

I notice alot of wedding sites have a place where it says vendors sign up for free. how are we benefitting from this other than more traffic clicking on advertisements..?? am i missing something...

    Hello Kim

    A site that generates revenue from ads and affiliate programs needs content.

    And in this case, the content seems to be the goods and services offered by the vendors on the site.

    If those vendors have an affiliate program, great. If not, they just become part of the site's 'content' which attract more visitors and hence still have a value to the site.

    Well, my first thought is that a large portion of their site is members only.

    In exchange for your e-mail, they give you:
    • 50,000+ photos of gowns, flowers, cakes and more
    • Personal planning tools
    • Local wedding resources
    • Free Wedding Website
    • Gift registry management online
    • Wedding discounts and special offers
