A while ago Bob Massa commented that a shopping mall without stores is not really a shopping mall. DaveN and I have been chatting a bit and have been thinking about creating a members marketplace of some sort.
Early ideas we have are
- make sure there is a user feedback / rating system
- try to filter out noisy spam offers by requiring some sort of payment (money / membership so long / so many posts / something like that)
- possibly offering tiers of access
So the question is: what do YOU want in a community marketplace? What can we do to create a marketplace that adds value to your business?
