People seem to always want to know what sites we own or try. We actually launch new sites probably about 1 per week on average. Today we are launching a new site called Below A Buck. Dave kept a log of our conversations and how the site was built over on his site.
The concept of Below A Buck is pretty simple. You can see items on eBay easily that are under $1. We also wanted to make the site as simple and easy to use as possible. After all this is a site that WE want to use. This is pretty much how things get developed at ShoeMoney Media Group. Someone will come up with an idea for a service that they wish existed. I will get really excited and come up with several ways how it will work. Dave will come up with 10 reasons why it wont work. Somewhere in the middle one of us will convince the other and we go from there.
Will the site be a huge success? I would say it already is a success. Its a great looking fully functionally website which provides a service both myself and Dave wanted on the internet. We both are eBay junkies and also love to snipe items for cheap prices. Also the site did not take up much of our time to build and launch. We contracted unique blog designs for the layout and Dave busted out the code.
A.D.D. note: I am really liking working with the guys at unique blog designs. Like us they work very fast and work all hours to get the job done. I see us working together on a lot of future projects.
Obviously the monetization strategy is using the eBay affiliate program. Will be interesting to see how it goes 😉
