about this episode
This week’s guest was Scott Morrow, CEO of ThisNext a social shopping search/discovery site that uses crowdsourcing to bring the best products to the top. Highlights of the show are a live surprise call to a superfan and interesting discussion about arbitrage.
During “Ask Jason” we hear Denny Ferrassoli ask, what are the pros and cons to bringing real money vs. virtual currency to a social community.
Anibal Damião calls in for “Jason’s Shark Tank” and he pitches Influads an advertising alternative, where one advertisement is place on a website.
During the interview we learn about what it’s like to come in as a President for a startup with a founder still in the mix, the ins and outs of crowdsourcing methods and a detailed discussion about pay per click, arbitrage and paid search. Scott brought up one ThisNext feature that was pretty interesting “Explore” a map that allows you to watch people shop live around the world.
Another contest was held on the fly, Charles Goffnett (ShirTeeapp.com) , a superfan, sent in four “Insight’s from Tyler” inspired t-shirts that were given to four fan’s chosen at random who thanked our sponsors. Charles will soon be launching a site if you’d like to purchase one on your own. I’ll be sure to post details once they are available.
