  5. Crowdfunding business in the UK. Similar to KickStarter, but focused on actually buying equity rather than a finished product. Seems a lot less polished and much smaller scale that kickstarter.
  6. Interesting article about how effective facebook ads can be with some optimisation. Cost per clicks between a few pence and .3p per click. Food for thought. No specific advice or tips in the article.
  7. Interesting shopping comparison vertical focused entirely on heating oil. Includes smart examples of cross / up sells. Hat tip Dafydd.
