SweetDeals.ch - Buy and Sell in English!

Today 1 st of June 2013, I launched a website for this.

The idea is that every English speaker can publish things and services they have to sell and anybody can buy them, companies included.

Publish your stuff for free, no commissions, no hassle, clean and simple.

You can enter our website at www.SweetDeals.ch and publish your stuff.

PD: Please help us spreading the word.

Thanks!

How many times are you going to spam the EF with this and other identical posts? Copy&Paste artist, huh? IMO, you are one of those that don't care about the forum, the guidelines and looking out for yourself. BTW, will SweetDeals.ch be a free service forever?

Re: SweetDeals.ch - Buy and Sell in English!

I am sorry, it wasn't my intention to SPAM in any way. I was just adding the comment that I am releasing a FREE service for the English speaking community in Switzerland. I was just replying to posts of people asking where to sell things.

I don't plan to make me a millionaire with this site, just to offer a service which is planned to remain Free.

Thanks and sorry again.

Re: SweetDeals.ch - Buy and Sell in English!

Why limit it to English ?

Is there really a market for this? How many people in Switzerland speak only English??

This must be the only place in the world where people complain when they get more choice...

So far your business plan is working - you will not make a million while offering free services!

BTW, you have just committed yourself and your sales site to life long free service - when the name of your site is Googled, this EF post will be pretty close to the top of the list... Congrats. However, in your own words, the service is planned to remain free. First time you charge for the services, you are not fulfilling your own words.

So, enjoy running the site, hope you have crossed your ts and dotted your is. Over the years this might get costly

Thank you very much for your suggestions. I have some ideas for the future which will probably have a cost. But there will always be a free option, thats the whole point of it.

25% of the people living in Switzerland are foreginers and most of them summing up the Swiss people speak English. That was the whole purpose of the site

I know its difficult to launch a site when its empty thats why I would like to ask everybody´s help to publish whatever they have to sell to help the site start! Thanks a lot!
