    Donation boxes?
    I showed a friend of mine one of my tools for ensnaring eyeballs. The tool is a time-saver for my target audience.

    Since it saves users so much time (and educates along the way), my friend thinks a donation box would be worthwhile.

    Anyone here care to share experiences with donations and the like?

    If it saves time why not figure out the average savings and sell it?

    Another idea is to split test a page with a donation box and a "buy now" page and then send me a donation of 10%

    Cheers.

    Now you have me thinking. Perhaps I am stuck in my sandbox playing by myself.

    I think I should be shooting for more than just internet. I think I'm going to freeze my existing development on this and work towards a stand-alone app that certain businesses can use.

    amazon.com seems to have all but forgotten their offering. maybe it works for some, but I haven't heard mention of it for a long time there.

    yeah, I see I still have an Honor System account. with zero in it.

    by the way, I think they nick 15% for the use of it.

    Nothing to be curious about.

    I was just thinking of ways to generate inbound links and not thinking outside that particular box.

    I don't bother with donations anymore. I used to have it on my c*ntent site, but in it's 2 year existence I only got maybe 2 donations for $10. I received tons of e-mails saying thanks and how good what I was giving away is but to DONATE? Nah...

    I agree with asr_guy - if it's really that good, sell it.
