What’s New… Used, and Made?

3 08 2009

I have been heads down building a couple apps. I have launched my first one and thought I had better post something on what I came up with and how the experience was.

It was really just some refinement to my New-Used-Made idea I discussed in an earlier post.  You can see the site at: www.NewUsedMade.com.  My effort consisted of:

  1. Adding some image resizing JavaScript.
  2. Adding some JavaScript to give No Image messages.
  3. Getting a URL.
  4. Adding some Google Analytics tracking.  (the trickest part was setting up analytics on the exit links clicked)
  5. Trying to monetize (an on going process)

The last step may bother some.  I love trying to figure out technology for tech sake, but the same is true for business.  How can you build something that people will like, and use… even if it means parting with some of their hard earned cash.  With this site it is not such a direct call to action.  I am hoping the mash-up of Amazon, Ebay and Etsy shopping will help people find items that they never would have before.

I will keep you posted on my learnings and progress… I also have another site coming up in the near future.
