I’m quite a big fan of Rouxbe.com . It’s a cooking and recipes site at its Web 2.0 best, with some interesting approaches to adverts and sponsorship. You have a choice between paying for your Premium membership once your free trial is up, inviting others for free credits or being sponsored by an advertising partner. Instead of spamming your videos and the rest of the sites with unwanted links, the sponsorship partner is chosen on the basis of your personal preferences and gives you free access to the site. There are plenty of opportunity to click through and explore their site, and since it’s a site that matches your likes and dislikes, the chances are that you will.
My sponsor for the next three months is Epitourean which focuses on culinary tourism — thanks guys!
