Default Hello

I wanted to say hi. What a great web site. My wife and I would like to start a small on line business that caters to a specific group of consumers where they can use our web site to comparison shop. Any ideas on how to start up such a beast?

Welcome atf2190 & thanks for the kudos

Are you talking about something like a comparison price site? That's a beast if so - curious, can you provide any examples/benchmarks of others doing what you have in mind?

Here is a recent PC article on some comparison sites


And there is a good blog called Comparison Engines that likely would be of interest to keep informed w/ this 'niche industry'.

Default Thank you for the link

The link to comparison engine was great! I cannot recall the example of the web site I saw, but it was listed in Business 2.0 within the last year; highlighting a college student from California who started the website and is generating income from the sales.

Again, thank you.
