How is Top-10 list beneficial for any business?

  • Help you to create free lists of Top 10 items across various category and sub categories. (Eg Top 10 Android phones under Rs 15000, Top 10 Puma T-shirts .. etc )
  • Allow to add media (images or videos) to your items in one click. (Choose from already uploaded media)
  • Add URL to your items to generate free relevant traffic at your website.

How did this business idea emerge?

We (founders) were sitting back at home and searching for best android phones to buy and landed on e-commerce and few review sites but they could not help to understand which one is the best among all available options. Therefore we thought there should be a site which should only show public generated results of Top 10 items in all categories so that we don’t get lost in 5000+ results coming out of Google search.

Where did your capital come from and who funded you?

Currently we are self-funded and looking for angel investors who can support us building a long-term sustainable product to serve the people searching for Top 10 things online.

What are current and future revenue models?

Few current advertising sources:

  • Home page featured Top 10:
  • Banner Advertisement:
  • Relevant search result banner adds:

We are not looking confine ourselves making money only by traditional banner advertisements in long run. We are working on mass monetization program by which we will act as a commission agent and pass on some part of advertisement revenue to the list owners as well.

What are the future plans for Listopten.com?

We are currently focusing on building product and providing traffic to our e-commerce clients like carnation.in, snapdeal.com, infibeam.com etc. and providing an engaging platform to the users.

We are working on monetization of list and users creating Top 10 list will be given monetary advantages as per popularity if his lists.

Biggest challenges so far?

We are a small team working on a huge project which require huge data maintenance and client and user engagements on and off site.
