Here's what YAHOO should do to defeat GOOGLE once and for all...
Want to see YAHOO defeat GOOGLE? Boy.. I sure do....
I want to see this so much that I am about to reveal an idea that not only do I believe "does not exist" but I also believe this idea to be a MULTI-BILLION Dollar idea.
If I am right and this idea does not exist.... Not only could some company like Yahoo take this idea and be successful with it.... I believe the success of this single idea could propel YAHOO to #1 best shopping site ever!
Before I reveal the idea.... Let's look at Yahoo Shopping. What does Yahoo Shopping have?
1) Comparison Shopping
2) Gives you the best deal up top, in your face, for the product you want to buy.
3) Allows you to set up a Profile where you can save products for purchasing later.
4) In the same profile (#3) you can do tons of things from Wish Lists, to private lists where you list products you already own.
What's not to like about Yahoo Shopping? It's awesome. It works... It's better than GOOGLE Shopping! imho.
And it would devastate GOOGLE SHOPPING if YAHOO SHOPPING incorporated my idea into their shopper profile software.
So... What's my Multi-Billion $ idea I am revealing for free of charge? It's so simple it's ridiculous and I am sure millions of people have already thought it up.
When you sign into Yahoo Profile Shopping, you should assign a 50, 100, etc. mile radius around where you live that you are willing to travel.
So, if you don't like ordering online due to the shipping costs or you know of Mom and Pop stores that simply don't sell their products online.... You can locate these stores in your Radius and know that they sell the product you want.
My Idea goes further.... Using Yahoo Shopping's Price Comparison software you can have you I-PHONE or BLACKBERRY device be sent a PRICING Alert letting you know when a store near you has just lowered the price of a product on your wish list! (such as a sale).
You get alerted of the price, store location, and directions via linking to Yahoo Maps!
Simple idea... and yet so effective... so amazing.... It could work! Good Bye GOOGLE!
