The marketplace for small online businesses is crowded now more than ever.
 
My solution is a web platform where small businesses can team up to leverage each other's networks. Online retailers, niche bloggers, content creators and non-profits can find each other to create cooperative marketing opportunities with a focus on cross-promotional campaigns.

Problem:
Competition
The marketplace for small online businesses is crowded now more than ever.
 
Online marketing is a beast
It is especially difficult for new online businesses to get real traffic and reach a relevant audience.
 
The Google Dream
Even with all the SEO tips and tricks, its really difficult for small businesses to get ranked well on search.
 
Paid Advertising’s Fraud Problem
Ad networks knowingly sell bot traffic. Half of paid online display advertisements have never appeared in front of live human beings.
