Marketplace Mechanics Episode 2: Jean-Michel Chalayer, LeSalon

Marketplace Mechanics is BACK! After an unintentional one-year hiatus due to being busy building my own marketplace, I’m delighted to be recording MM again and to be releasing Episode 2 today.

In this episode, I speak to Jean-Michel Chalayer, the CEO & Co-Founder of LeSalon. I’ve known JM for several years now and our marketplaces are at similar stages (between Seed and Series A), so it’s always a pleasure to sit down and discuss strategy and tactics with him.

In this episode, we discuss an exciting range of topics including:

  • The early days of building a marketplace
  • Doing things that don’t scale to match supply and demand however you can
  • Supplier vetting, onboarding and training
  • Disintermediation
  • Fostering a real community within your marketplace
  • Advice for anyone considering starting a new two-sided marketplace
