Michael Arrington, over at TechCrunch, again launches another new company. But this one I know something about too because I met with the founders last week. They have an interesting concept and a — gasp — business model.
They’ll let you sell your time online. Say I want to start a consulting business to help companies get into blogging. I could set a price, let’s say $100 on weekdays, $300 on weekends. (There’s no minimum price, by the way, you could try it for free if you want to see how the system works).
They give me a number. I put that number on my blog. You call that number and it’ll make the appointment, take care of collecting your payment info, and do EVERYTHING about the call. They collect a small percentage of your fee.
I liked this cause it was unexpected. It did something I didn’t know I needed, but once I saw the concept I saw that it’ll let new people start businesses that they might never have considered before.
Anyone have any ideas of how they’d use Ether?
