I just discovered webmasterworld last week and am finding it to be a great resource. I look forward to getting my site to profitability and contributing to the community!
I run an online marketplace that allows any of our suppliers to list for free and anyone to search for product for free.
We've built the marketplace by emailing suppliers and letting them know about us. Generally, one out of every ten suppliers we email will list.
We are also finding that a good number of additional suppliers will get back to us and express some interest but want our site to meet certain goals before they will list (e.g. Alexa rating, amount of product listed, etc..). I would like to be able to categorize each of these prospects by state, their response type, and the type of widget they manufacture.
I would also like the system to be able to send a personalized email to each supplier based on the criteria we choose. For example, an email to each of the manufactures of widget 1 in Wisconsin who said they were holding off until our Alexa rating hit a new level before they would list to let them know our Alexa rating is up.
Do any of you know of a package that can do all of this?
