September 5, 2012 KY Based Internet Startup Set to Rival eBay & Craigslist

Owensboro, KY, September 05, 2012 – Grant Gipe today announced the launch of Yardmama.com. Yardmama will provide an online marketplace / classified listing website that allows members to post and promote various sale listings including yard sales, garage sales, moving sales, estate sales, single item sales, and virtual sales. “Yardmama was formed to give both buyers and sellers a more effective way to learn about and discover each other.” says Grant Gipe. “It’s a great way to sell your used stuff or discover some hidden treasures.”

Yardmama aims to offer users another promotional channel in addition to newspaper classified ads, eBay, and Craigslist. All sales are done off-line between the buyer and seller allowing the seller to keep 100% of their revenue. Yardmama does not collect a commission on sales or shipping fees. “Many sellers today publish and promote their sales on eBay, Craigslist or Tumblr then refer their friends and followers to Facebook to see more photos.” says Grant. “Yardmama is designed specifically for yard sales and gives users a dedicated online presence to promote their sales.”Owensboro, KY, September 05, 2012 – Grant Gipe today announced the launch of Yardmama.com.

Anyone can join and post a listing for FREE or upgrade and only pay $34 / year. “The yearly premium membership cost is equivalent to a one-off newspaper classified ad”, says the company CEO. “Except Yardmama users can list different sales all year long, whenever they want, as many times as they want.”

January 14, 2013 15 year Old Launches Internet Startup Helping the Secondhand Economy

Owensboro, KY, January 14th, 2013- After years of shopping at yard sales and thrift shops, Taylor Mahlinger was motivated to launch a website to help cash-strapped families save money and stretch their budgets. Taylor, a 15 year old freshman from Owensboro, KY., presented her idea to her family, formed a development and design team, and launched Yardmama 3 months later.

The free site is geo-enabled and allows users to find, buy, and sell items both locally or from across the country. Taylor, together with her design team, focused on developing a site with an intuitive search feature and simple listing process. The resulting product is a feature rich site that offers an engaging and rewarding user experience.

There are no commissions or selling fees which means sellers keep 100% of their revenue. It was also important to offer a FREE plan for the casual user and a paid plan offering more enhanced features such as a vanity URL, membership profile page, alert messages, route maps, reviews, ratings, bookmarks, favorites, photos, single item and virtual listings, plus much more!

The virtual listing feature allows sellers to list sales online without a date. This is especially useful for those living in an apartment or having restrictions by local laws limiting the number of times they can host a physical yard sale.

Yardmama is also a great online storefront for small businesses to promote their shops and items for sale to a broader market. Taylor’s vision is to have a diverse customer base including local businesses, charity and fundraising groups, apartment dwellers without a yard, consignment and thrift shops, antique malls, single item listings, and of course yard, garage, estate, and moving sales!

Taylor is currently preparing for the spring yard sale season when approximately 690,000 people buy something at one of the nearly 165,000 weekly yards sales across the US. She and her team are working on increasing the site’s customer base and listings even further during the spring when people start selling and looking for great finds.

Yardmama launched in September 2012 and has active members and listings across the USA. Anyone can join and post a listing for free!
