OpenSky is a new concept in online marketing that gives bloggers the power to sell only what they would choose to recommend to their friends, kind of like a cross between Etsy and an Amazon affiliate code but with a better payoff for everyone involved - the blogger and OpenSky split the earnings above wholesale price 50-50. Vendors/distributors get visibility and real-world feedback while bloggers/shopkeepers get products to review and recommend, plus a decent commission. Win-win!
I haven't technically opened my OpenSky shop yet (the platform launches on August 10th, keep your eyes on the ticker…) but I have started perusing the wares available and they run the gamut from culinary tools and foodie items to pet gear to beauty supplies to (seriously) air compressors. There is literally something there for everyone and being a gal with eclectic tastes, I am sure I will ferret out all sorts of cool stuff for you to discover.
