Shift from free to sale for certain or all free products?

This is the next big possible step!!!

Considering what happened with the no more free advice step, this is another possible improvement on the site simply selling more of what I offer.

Now, the challenge with that is different:
  • Products like MP3s receive exposure because they are free - They would not receive that exposure if they were not free!
  • Probably 80% of those who subscribe to an MP3 channel is because it is free. If it was simply a whole lot of ads, they would probably unsubscribe.
  • I tried to sell before some of these products that could be shifted back for sale. the sales results were not high. The income increase when these products are for sale was not very high.
  • If all these free products were for sale, the estimation is around 10 extra units sold / month.
