Dave Asher's Relabelit aims to bring classifieds back into the media space. The product takes a classifieds portal and relabels it onto a media publishing site. He wants to help news sites to create more traffic and gain passive users to a media site, who will take advantage of a classifieds site that they see in front of them. The news site would subscribe to relabelit, and would drive revenue for Asher and his team.
