Business models can be divided in two types in my analysis: Premium and Pervasive. The former is well known, but ignorance about the latter is leading to increasing blockades on the flow of goods equitably.
In the Premium model, a service is offered for free and if one wants more features – he must pay. This is because the businessman cannot sustain the free service without charging.
The Pervasive model, however, is actually quite prevalent but its secret unknown: Influencers are the first cohort of this movement. Its mechanism of action is simple: the full package is offered for free, but supported by advertisements and then content is generated at such speed through niche specialization that one becomes respected. One exceeds the speed (Time Value) of Money!
Atleast, thats the theory.
