Co-Founder of Diggit and ICMA Board Member, Tish Hill, shares that Diggit has further evolved away from pure classifieds to a new COMBINATION of TRUST+LOCAL+CURATED CONTENT+COMMERCE.
“We have local classifieds listings alongside our increasing number of local stores with online/mobile transaction capability. Some of our local stores are even selling food online!” stated Tish. She also informed ICMA that they will have online registration for classes & workshops starting in August 2013, which is a new source of revenue in that they take a fee for all these transactions.
Given the announcement of Jeff Bezos’ acquisition of the Washington Post – maybe combining content (national or local) with commerce is the way of the future?!
