Shiney’s BayRaider

Posted By Darren Rowse 6th of April 2005 Case Studies 0 Comments

Shiny Media is at it again by launching yet another blog – Bayraider – a blog that is centered around another net icon – ebay.

Their Press Release Describes Bayraider as follows:

‘People put some amazing things up on online auction sites, but sadly most of the time the sale of Charles and Diana divorce plates, fake dinosaur eggs and George W Bush in drag playing cards slip quietly by.

Not any more though because you’ll find all the freakiest stuff the online auction world has to offer along with a great deal else at Bayraider which launches today.

Bayraider is on a mission to dig out all that’s best on eBay and its rival auction sites.

Each day its readers will find

• The most bizarre stuff ever offered for sale, from haunted Nintendo games consoles through to likenesses of famous sports stars in potato chips

• The coolest collectibles from Elvis pinball machines through to life-size Dr Who Daleks

• Celebrity cast-offs from shoes once worn by the famous through to the bags they used to carry their pet dogs in

• The coolest gadgets and toys including amazing Japanese items that are not officially for sale in the US and UK

• Hot shots, incredible bargains nearing the end of their auctions

Another innovative idea from the Shiney crew – I wouldn’t mind meet and working with some of these people one day – I like their style. Not only are they seeking to monetize their blog with Adsense this time but they also will have opportunity to unashamedly jump in on ebay’s affiliate program – smart move!
