Hey guys, wanted to take a minute to introduce to y'all - STICKSWAP.

 

My buddy and I created this golf club marketplace so people like you could easily buy & sell used clubs.  Just like eBay, but just clubs.  Also, we'll be spending money on advertising to make sure your clubs get seen, and ultimately sold. 

 

Check it out and let me know what you think. - www.stickswap.co

 

Best, 

 

Mike

Good idea, but how is this better than ebay?

 

Ebay already has a huge user base including several companies like rock-bottom golf and 2nd swing. If I want to buy something I know ebay will have a ton of options and as a seller I know that I'd get the most eyes on my clubs by throwing them on ebay.

Right now, you're 100% right. eBay is better.  They have a massive inventory. You can search for "cleveland wedge" and have hundreds to choose from. 

 

Our goal is to some day get there.  Where we aim to stand out is by providing full support on the marketing side of the coin.  Each and every listing will be shared and marketed across our marketing channels.  We have other golf related instagram accounts (brolife_golf) that have over 11k followers.  Not a big number by any means, but the followers are very engaged in golf.  They're a great audience that's very interested in this topic.  

 

Also, we charge less. 

 

We want to create a community of golf club buyers & sellers, provide them with occasional updates regarding new listings and so on and so forth.  

 

At the very least, perhaps we can give eBay some solid concentrated niche competition.

That sounds great - but how exactly do you plan on getting that inventory?  If I was a seller I do not really have any incentive to list on your site because there demand is so low.  I want to put my inventory where the action is, which, right now, is ebay.  Heck, there is more action on the Buy/Sell areas of sites like MGS and WRX.  And there are no fees at all on those sites.  Maybe if you became the official store site of a site like MGS or WRX you could make a dent, but I just don't see it.

 

The real question is - is there really a need for this type of site? Are their sellers of golf clubs that wish there was an outlet like this for their clubs?
