Shelly Palmer Radio Report – June 10, 2014

Have you found yourself shopping on Amazon for something you don’t know the first thing about? All you want to do is buy a new coffee maker, but you have no idea why some cost fifteen bucks while others cost eighty. You’ll want to check out a new site called FiveStar, which quickly picks out the best products in any Amazon category, then sorts those products by budget. Got $20 to spend on that coffee maker? FiveStar will show you the two best units available at that price. Or, if you want to spring for a nicer model, you’ll see slightly more expensive devices in the same search. For FiveStar, “best” doesn’t just mean highest-rated. Instead, the site is built around an algorithm that factors in relevance, popularity, rating and price. FiveStar was created by a sophomore at Louisiana Tech University who had no idea which toaster he should buy – so he wrote a script that gave him the best toaster for his money. To get started shopping, head over to FiveStar.io today.
