How does ChaCha make money?

I just found out about and had one pressing question: "How does ChaCha generate revenue?". Well, I dutifully texted that question into ChaCha and got this response:

ChaCha earns revenue from advertising on its website and through its strategic partnerships. Please text more questions to answer!

I don't see any advertising on their site, so I guess I don't really buy that answer. I think the real answer is, "ChaCha doesn't generate revenue yet, but hopefully we will some day, somehow". Or maybe they're funded by phone companies for some reason?
