Hi Guys!

Iím building a Social Commerce platform and would love to get some views on a couple of features Iím looking to include so I can build something you guys actually want. Just 5 quick questions.

NB: If you donít know, Social Commerce is basically just eCommerce that leverages the social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, etc.

The Questions...

1.Rank the following features in order of importance...

a.Leaderboard - lets you show your followers/fans in order of how many points they have on the social networks (instead of just showing your followers on Facebook)

b.Daily Deals on your site Ė lets you run promos/offers on your site where shoppers get discounts based on how many points they have on the social networks (in return, they will post it on their social networks)

c.Daily Deals on our site Ė lets you post your daily deals on our site and so opens your offers to a wider audience

2.Which pricing model would you prefer...

a.Small monthly fee ($10), no contract, cancel anytime, plus small transaction fee (1%-3% of the DISCOUNT AMOUNT) based on sales

b.Bigger monthly fee ($50), no contract, cancel anytime, NO transaction fee

c.No monthly fee, no contracts, higher transaction fee (5%-7% of the DISCOUNT AMOUNT)

3.We will offer a FREE TRIAL. How long would be enough for to decide if you want it...

a.1 month
b.2 months
c.3 months

4.If invited, would you participate in a FREE private beta of such a product...


5.Which of the following social networks do you have a business page/profile on...

e.My Space
