Imagine a social network built around reviewing and sharing products and you will have some idea of what Tibesti sets out to achieve. Once you have completed the short sign up process, you are invited to fill out a profile, which includes your interests and add a picture. Then it’s time to get to the heart of Tibesti, by adding some products you like to your profile. Simply navigate to the ‘expert reviews’ section and select a product category from the menu on the left. Choose a product, and you can write a short review. This product is added to your profile page and you will earn a commission if someone buys the product as a result of your review.
There are plenty of other features to the site too, such as the ability to create your own online store, give advice to other users, rate reviews, create wish lists and join groups.
Most people will be interested in the possibility of making money with the site. Tibesti gives 25% commission on any products purchased through your page, as well as 25% on any products you purchase. While that may be attractive, this process only works with certain retailers, Amazon being a notable exception.
Tibesti is an interesting concept, but site navigation is counter-intuitive and there wasn’t a lot of on-site help. In addition, there’s still work to be done before the product range is comprehensive.
