See Jane Fly: Erica Dublin
See Jane Fly: Erica Dublin – AOL is giving young entrepreneurs the chance to tell their story in 60 seconds or less. The offer is part of a new promotional opportunity for individuals to publish the story on their website. If the person that shares their story has not already found success, their story will be shown to millions of visitors to the site, giving them an opportunity to secure funding.
Today’s lucky entrepreneur is Erica Dublin who founded “See Jane Fly.” The website is a travel planning website for women, and the site is meant to help women wade through all of the different options available to them when they are looking to travel.
Before AOL placed her ad on their homepage, the Alexa rating of the website was a lousy 959,131, meaning that the site received very little traffic. Now that AOL has placed her story on their page, that rating will be rising and “See Jane Fly” will likely receive hundreds of thousands of visitors in a very short amount of time.
It will be interesting to see if AOL’s new program is able to launch the career of Erica Dublin, who has been hard at work on the San Francisco based online travel resource that was designed specifically for women. She does have an interesting idea for her website, and it is one that many women would likely find useful. An endorsement from a company as big as AOL can mean the world for a small business looking to get their start in the online market place.
