I'm building a site and community around a particular disability which I have. I have a number of ideas that I'm sure will make the site a success in terms of getting visitors, but I'd also like to monetize the site. Ideally, this would be full-time work for me, but obviously it would have to pay. :-)
I'm wondering if anyone has ideas as to how I could go about monetizing the site? I don't want to plaster it with ads (not that they seem to generate that revenue - particularly in this niche) and the only good idea I've come up with so far is to build a number of online services (subscription based) that would aid those in some way with this disability, which I could then promote via my community site.
Does anyone have experience in monetizing what could be seen as charitable work, helping the disabled, without offending people and still doing okay?
