|Our site / Chrome app - http://clipular.com - has about 7,500 users so far, and is one year old this month.|
With it, you can draw a box anywhere you like to clip a web page, saving exactly the area you select (snap to div is optional). Our users like it because it's very simple, with a keyboard shortcut and no extra actions to take.
The clips are kept in a password-protected quilt that only you can see. The full text of the site is indexed no matter what portion you clip, so you can search for words on a site you've saved, even if they're not in your clipping.
Now we need to decide how to monetize our app.
We're considering premium features, like group sharing, public sharing, or enterprise versions. Advertising and data collection have been discussed, but we don't really like turning our users into products.
What do you think? Premium features for a fee? One-time or monthly? What would be good features? Is there a better business model?
