Natick Firm Publishes New Online Auction Newsletter: AuctionBytes.com
November 8, 1999,
Natick, Mass. In a move that epitomizes how the Internet has
changed the way companies do business, a Natick, Massachusetts, publishing company has
decided to use the topic of their publication as a vehicle for kicking it off. AuctionBytes.com
newsletter debuted today with the announcement of a 10-day Dutch auction on eBay, an
Internet auction site. Ten high bidders will receive a one-year subscription to this new
newsletter about online auctions. The Dutch auction will start on November 11, 1999, and
will end on November 21, 1999. Bidding starts at $9.99. Normally, a one-year subscription
costs $29.99, and a special introductory price of $24.99 is in effect until March 1, 2000.
"AuctionBytes.com gives readers practical advice on the online
auction buying and selling process. We thought it was only natural that it should be
christened on an auction site," stated Ina Steiner, editor of AuctionBytes.com.
"The number of people using online auctions sites is growing exponentially. There's a
real need for practical information about this exciting e-commerce venue."
Ina and David Steiner, a husband and wife team, got the idea for the newsletter in
August after discovering online auction sites. David Steiner, a video producer in the
Boston area, needed to sell an expensive piece of professional video equipment. After
unsuccessfully trying traditional methods, a colleague told him about eBay, where Steiner
proceeded to sell the equipment in 10 days for a price that he was very happy with.
"I was astounded that I could sell a high-ticket item costing thousands of dollars so
easily and quickly. I admit, I had been skeptical. It was the first time I had used an
online auction site. But the transaction went so smoothly, I was hooked," said David.
