Andre and others, When I started solostring.com, I initially had every mp3 available as a free download. What I saw was like yourself Andre - lots of people downloading but very little income. I now have a selection of mp3's available for free downloading, but I also have a members only section that is password protected. I don't ask for money as such, but just hint that this is my livelihood and state that any donation or nicely written email will get you the password. Whilst I still give out many free passwords, I do get people who donate through 'guilt trip' :) Just an idea....
