Dotcom Success Stories Could Include a Growing Timeshare Company
Wednesday, July 25, 2007
Mashable is a social networking blog and one I read as often as I can. The blog is written by Pete Cashmore, and I have a great deal of appreciation for his knowledge of internet marketing in this age of Web 2.0.
Last week, he ran a blog post called, Tech Startup USA: 27 Web Companies in the Northeast. He looked at some of the more notable web based companies, or the type of online based businesses that are sometimes referred to as a “dotcom”.
I won’t go into all the online companies that made the list, but here are a few, and Cashmore’s description of them, including names you will know and a few you may not:
- Del.icio.us – Popular social bookmarking site that centers around posting links and promoting and sharing them via tags.
- Xanga – Popular social networking community, currently ranked #92 on Alexa.
- Library Thing – Service lets you organize your book collection, find books and authors of interest, and connect with people based upon literary tastes.
- MyBlogLog – Simple social networking for bloggers, featuring a highly useful widget that tracks and displays blog visitors.
- FeedBurner – Leading RSS Feed service, FeedBurner creates and manages RSS feeds for site content and offers any array of related services—such as detailed statistics and reporting – at fee and paid subscription levels.
If you are interested, I hope you will go to the Mashable blog and read about all 27 companies. They really fascinated me, especially since these are online companies that have put down roots so close to where we, at Sell My Timeshare NOW, are here in Dover, NH. As Cashmore says, “…it’s sometimes easy to forget that web companies are real entities tethered to Earth-bound locales.”
Sell My Timeshare NOW is both a bricks and mortar business and an online global web company. Besides our Dover, NH office, we have an office in Altamonte Springs, (Orlando) Florida. And while clients, customers, and anyone who wants a very average cup of office coffee are always welcome to drop by, our business is primarily as an Internet based company or dotcom.
Sell My Timeshare NOW may not have made Mashable’s list this year, but we are seeing some pretty amazing growing. Our website traffic is up 53 percent over 2006, and the number of offers to rent or buy timeshare is up 55 percent for this same period. Across the board, we will exceed all performance predictions—in all categories—for 2007.
