10,000 users have registered to buy and sell on Bonanzle. Yes, I agree, this is not a significant number when compared with the registered user of sites like eBay, Amazon.com or even Etsy. Yet, the speed in which this milestone has been reached is a significant development.
Bonanzle is an great tool for Internet sales of tangible and intangible items. The site can not be compared with eBay because it is not similar in any way other than a very fast start. If fact, I would wager that if the growth curve of eBay from day one was compared with Bonanzle’s meteoric rise in these last several months, eBay may not come out the winner.

Agents of Revenue – Show One – Replay Here
Countdown to the new show…
Hope you all stop by the TalkShoe site after dropping by AgentsofRevenue.com
John and I will be glad to see you in the chat room, and we are looking forward to everyone joining the conversation…
The idea is simple, No BS eCommerce, eBay and eBusiness. We won’t be selling and DVD sets and we won’t be pulling any punches when it comes to sharing our opinions about anything to do with the industry. We know that as co-hosts we will not always agree on every subject but this is also what we think will make us unique.
Ok… here is the deal…
If you sell products on the Internet – It’s your job to make sure buyers find and buy those products.
Simple as that.
From basic eCommerce to business oriented informational and corporate websites to personal blogs, real estate sales, or news magazines. Wordpress as a CMS is the king of customization.
John and I have been jabbing back and forth on Twitter – red and blue style, in the tradition of the political season for several weeks now.
If you have been considering building a website to promote your own Bonanzle or Etsy, or Online Auction or even eBay sales… Just get out there and do it! The biggest step is the first one, and we all know after that, its all just a matter of following through. Cliff Aliperti, is following through!
