Bonanzle Interactive Blog at Multiply Test Link

Testing my new site:

New Bonanzle Blog at Multiply:

Both are under construction but I love that there is the capability of more interaction, just like Bonanzle!!!!

Bonanzle Soon to Break the 15K Membership Mark

Been busy adding to the Bonanzle listings the last few days. As the days lead up to Christmas, quite often sales will slow... It's so important to have a good selection of product for January. Quite consistently over the last decade with online selling I have noticed a huge spike in mid January through February. Make sure to dress up your booth.

btw looks like Bonanzle will crack the 15K membership this weekend. Rocking!!!!!

Bonanzle Tops 10,000 Users and Other Marketplace News
By Ina Steiner
November 27, 2008

A number of auction sites and marketplaces issued announcements this week, here is a look at some of the news coming out of eBay-alternative sites, including new features, promotions and milestones.

Alibris Celebrates 10 Years of Supporting Independent Booksellers
Alibris, an independently owned online global marketplace for new, rare, and used books, CDs, and DVDs, announced its 10-year anniversary. Over 12,000 independent sellers around the world offer more than 100 million items on the site. Alibris has partnerships with leading media retailers including Barnes & Noble, Borders and and has sold more than 35 million books, music items, and movies.

Bonanzle Tops 10,000 Users, Overhauls Search and Category
Bonanzle reached 10,000 registered users on November 23, 2008, and is close to reaching 400,000 listings. Bonanzle said over 1,000 new buyers and sellers register each week. The auction site recently overhauled its search and category structure, adding a new search and about 26,700 additional categories, up from 300 categories when the site initially launched earlier this year. Search results now display more items per page (48 instead of 20), and the default listing format has been changed from the small-pictured list to the item gallery used everywhere else on the site. The complete list is found on the category list page. The company said the focus of November improvements was on "features that increase sales."

10,000 Happy Bonanzle Mark

As Bonanzle closed in on 10,000 unique members today, the forums were filled with well wishers in the Bonanzle threads. What an achievement in these days and times! No internet venue for buying and selling has achieved this capacity in such a short time frame. I am sure there will be multiple articles criss-crossing the web today in celebration. I just wanted to add my congrats to Bill and Mark for an amazing accomplishment. Bonanzle is the "Best Alternative".

Wow Bonanzle Is the Chief Hint of Venues to Kovel's

For all the long term to long time dealers and sellers in the Real World and online, Kovel's has always been a source of inspiration and information. Well this week's newsletter has a little link requesting best venues instead of the Fe(ebay). So far and up to the time I submit this post, Bonanzle is the leader of the pack of the favored submissions. Rock on Bonanzle !!! Happy Holidays for All !!!

My Personal Take as Christmas Shopping Season Begins

Bonanzle is the most rapid growing internet commerce site ever. It has been tailored to the interests and expectations of sellers and buyers alike. No doubt about it, it is “The Internet Darling”.

Proof is in the pudding. I have a booth there and I have had:
Booth views: 6457. I never saw those kind of views on the other site in the 11+ years I was there.

Bonanzle is doing everything right and there are others trying to imitate the feel, the look, the success but you can’t improve on perfection. If you haven’t been by yet, come and say hi. You’ll be glad you did!
