A new travel website has been launched this week. Simonseeks.com is much like any other holiday review site on the surface, however it is unique. The aim is to allow holiday makers to write up their own travel guides, and in return they can receive a share of the advertising revenue created from the likes of hotels.com, lastminute, ebookers and Superbreak.
Many sites adopt a revenue sharing model to encourage readers to also make valuable contributions, however few have been as high profile as Simonseeks.com.
Simon Nixon, the founder of SimonSeeks.com, is also the man behind the popular moneysupermarket.com. he has a proven track record for developing an idea into a leading brand, even when the market is already very competitive.
Simonseeks.com could provide the blueprint for the next wave in “make money from home” websites. The same idea could easily be ported to any niche, from sharing the revenue on nutritional supplements to books and DVDs.
