Already top presentation of the day on Slideshare and we didn’t even put the word out. In our most recent presentation ’10 Business Models that rocked 2010’ we looked at the previous year and chose our top picks of the year. Not every interesting revenue model was included. Some of course missed our selection. I personally didn’t choose penny auction concepts like Swoopo and others. People that joined one of our workshop sessions knew already that these concepts are quite fraudulous. Auction platforms like this aren’t very sustainable. Recent figures already showed that Swoopo is indeed in decline. Other emerging concepts like Quora aren’t on the list either. Although everybody is talking about this relative new content platform, they didn’t figure out what business model to roll out. Sounds very Twitterish, not? If I had to include 1 extra revenue model to this selection, I would go for Gilt.com, which has another interesting approach for selling ‘online deals’. Read more about their margins, cash conversion and so on here. We’ll come back to this case later on.

Watch the full presentation here. (full screen works best). If you like it, feel free to share, retweet or like it. And now you’re at it, did we forget an important business model? Send us your feedback below or via twitter (@nickdemey). thx
