I like lists. It’s a one of my ways I track new and interesting markets and industries. I’ve created quite a few lists over the passing months, and they continue to help people find new products, and even competitors in their industry.
See all my posts tagged Industry Index.
What’s really interesting, as in the list of White Label Social Networking companies is how it started with 8 names and grew to 60 in a mere number of months. Also, the list of Social Media Measurement is a good way to see exactly how effective these companies are; they should be responding to that list in near real time right?
I found out from a few sources that some of my lists are actively read by VCs in Silicon Valley. They use it as intelligence to gauge how crowded a market is before plunking down those millions.
The most recent additions? I left a comment in this great post from Techcrunch about online video advertising, linking to the Video Measurement list, as you need measurement before advertising dollars can be spent.
It’s a community thing really, so you can add names to those lists, go to the post and leave a comment!
