We've been live for a few months at http://community.homeaway.com and things are going well so far.
We anticipated that some number of service providers would engage in our community with the goal of finding new customers. And of course they have.
While our guideliness prohibit solicitation, we think there is actually value in having a portion of the site be dedicated to service providers that our customers might use. The default thought is to organize it like a classifieds section based on type of service and / or geography since that would be most relevant for most of our customers.
And of course the next thought is to charge for those classified type postings?
i'm just wondering if anyone has done anything similar with their Jive instance and if so, do you have any tips around organization and payment integration.
Thanks in advance.
