Announcing iLeher reViews

Written by: Madhur

On Nov 20th, 2006

I’ve been getting a few requests lately for reviewing new startups in the consumer Internet space. Even though iLeher was not started with this aim initially, I figured it would be still valuable for readers to see reviews of startups/companies offering useful/cool services for users. Of course the usual analysis/commentary style posts will be there (thats what I like writing most). So to streamline the review process, I have come up with iLeher reViews. The way it will work is the following:

  1. The owner/promoter of the startup can contact me (madhur at iLeher dot com or use the Review Me link ) for getting their site/service reviewed.
  2. I will send a brief questionnaire, which the owner/promoter of the startup will fill and send it back to me.
  3. The question-answers will be put up on iLeher reViews.
  4. The readers will read these question-answers and vote/comment on these.
  5. On a regular basis, I will pick up an active startup/company, if any, in terms of number of votes and comments and review it (do analysis, point out competition, include suggestions, etc.) and put it up here on iLeher.
  6. I will also include the best comments from the readers in the post. After all user feedback is the most important thing for a consumer Internet company.

So please get in touch with me if you want your site to be reviewed and I will follow up with the questionnaire. Meanwhile, for the readers – the first startup for reView is already up and it’s Onyomo.com – the local search engine. Check it out and put your valuable vote and comments.

    Are you the one behind startups.in/india? The reason I’m asking is because I find ileher.com/reviews and its description very similar to startups.in/review?
    About Startups.in/Re[View] – At Startups.in/Review, you can submit your own review of a startup or simply post details / profile of any new startup. This is a place for you to inform us about startups in India that you think are cool.
    We will constantly monitor the startups in re[view], contact the founders and publish them on the front page.
    What is the deal? Are you the one behind the two sites or are you related? Why are you duplicating the same stuff on multiple sites?

    Kanna,

    I am not the one behind startups.in/India. The purpose of iLeher reViews is to have a discussion about stories, interviews, and companies. iLeher is more of analysis oriented blog rather than just news and so reViews was started to encourage user participation on the latest happening stuff. As mentioned there, the best user comments and stories will then be paid more attention and brought to the main iLeher page.

    Also I would like to add that blogosphere is truly an echo system where repetition brings attention to most important of issues out there. Although this can be misleading if the information is wrong, repeating is an important virtue of blogs.
