Affiliate Opportunity with! aggregates the finders’ fees/rewards which users would pay to the person who finds the service or item they’re looking for (“$100 if you find us a Mandarin-speaking nanny,” “$75 if you find us temp office space on the Westside.”) I had the idea when I was 5 days from having my first son, and would have basically paid anyone who could solve my urgent to-do list items (which included selling a car, finding office space and finding a nanny).  An alpha version of the site is up, and a beta version is releasing in May .

The beta release will let us work with affiliates. In the most “entry level” mode, charity groups, newsletters, list managers and website owners will be able to cite our link (specially programmed to be a unique URL for them). When traffic comes to us via their unique URL, we’ll be able to keep track of who signed up from that referral. Then, when commissions are generated from the new users, we’ll be able to share them with the organization that referred them.

Once we’ve got this functionality “down,” we’ll roll-out the widget which can be used as a monetization module for small sites. Contact Camille for more info: clandau at !
