I’ve also been serving as an external consultant for www.ookong.com for their business strategies. It is an interesting website, maybe useful for your online shopping at Amazon.com!
Ookong provides users with a detailed monitoring tool for Amazon purchases. Users can select an item on Amazon and watch it through Ookong. Ookong provides the user with price history so they can see the highest and lowest prices for that item. The user can also set up notifications that will alert them when the Amazon price goes down. Easy to read graphs depict Amazon’s pricing as well as the prices found for the same item on third party websites. The Ookong homepage includes a list of the most popular items with a thumbnail of their price graph and link to the item’s page for more in depth information. Ookong users can also install the application’s browser add on for Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Opera browsers.
Ookong was founded in June of 2009 by Jay Wang and Wenbin Ye. The team is currently based out of Garland, Texas and includes President Connie Xu. The application was created as a social shopping service that enabled users to follow a product to see how its price fluctuates. Today, Ookong is equipped with many valuable tools that help users monitor products and see what their friends are watching as well.
