I was reading Dave Winer’s RSS weblog earlier this week. Dave said he hated ads in RSS feeds but that he might be seduced into subscribing to ad-only feeds if they were interesting to him.
So ….. I got to thinking. What if we could create a club – like Costco almost – where bloggers and blog readers could be offered special deals by vendors. The more the demand the better the deal.
With that in mind I have created an experiment. http://www.rssbuys.com is a site dedicated to bringing good offers to bloggers and blog readers alike. Maybe Scoble could get us a deal on TabletPC’s. 🙂 You can surf the site or subscribe to the feed.
if it seems useful I intend to do 2 things. Firstly, allow custom RSS feeds where you only get offers related to stuff that interests you. And secondly, go and negotiate great deals directly with vendors. Right now the content is deals I think are good based on a few affiliate relationship I have put in place.
Please comment. I need to know if this is a good idea or not.
