Posted by at 11:43 pm on November 4, 2009

eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace, today announced the launch of The Inside Source, a new digital magazine for inspired shoppers featuring insights and stories based on what more than 89 million active users are searching for, buying and selling on eBay. The Inside Source will offer fresh daily content with original articles, analysis and opinions from journalists as well as eBay community contributors.

“Imagine that every day, every person in the United States tells eBay what they want,- said Alan Marks, Senior Vice President of Global Communications for eBay. “That’s the power of how many searches occur on eBay every day. Now add insights gleaned from almost 200 million live product listings, the stories of more than 25 million sellers and the several million purchases people make each day on eBay, and you get The Inside Source -“ a perspective on shopping trends, pop culture obsessions and the stuff people love, that only eBay can offer.-

While presented by eBay, The Inside Source editorial content will be directed and managed by an accomplished editorial team, led by Meredith Barnett, previously Director of Digital Media for Lifetime Digital. Editorial content will cover a variety of lifestyle topics, including fashion, technology, automotive, home and garden, pop culture and sustainability.

Barnett brings strong editorial, digital and e-commerce experience to her role as Managing Editor of The Inside Source. At Lifetime Digital, Barnett oversaw non-programming-related content for myLifetime.com, a site focused on women’s entertainment, escape and play. Barnett is a Founder of StoreAdore.com, a Web-based guide to the best boutique shopping around the country and online, featuring a regularly updated blog and a searchable database of original editorial profiles of more than 3,000 stores. Her editorial experience also includes a three-year stint at Lucky and regular contributions to publications including PARADE and The Huffington Post. She earned her BA from Brown University and an MBA from Harvard.
