It’s a question that I have to answer a lot and with nearly 14,000 members now, I’m betting there’s a few out there who have had this conversation too. It’s a very simple question with a pretty straight-forward answer. Yet every time I’m faced with it, I feel this sudden pressure to come up with an answer that’s as short and succinct as possible, or risk losing their interest forever.
It’s a tough one because ziilch can be appealing in so many different areas.
Anyone who has ever moved house. Anyone who has ever hired a skip. Anyone who has ever been to a garage sale. Anyone who has ever HELD a garage sale. Anyone with charity in their heart and believes in giving. Anyone who has ever put something out on the nature strip and then felt that subsequent good feeling when it’s gone that afternoon….Or anyone that likes free stuff.
Ziilch can be for everyone, but in their own way. I suppose in order to give the best answer to this guy on his phone is to figure out how he might use it. I tell him ziilch is a website where people give away their stuff for free.
“Oh yeah. What’s it cost?”
