Rambo's Shed offers free listing feature to hunting gear owners where they can share their hunting gear to other hunters.
Hunters can thus search for available accommodation and book it for the desired dates. The booking process and the monetary transactions are handled by Rambo's Shed. This is where the revenue generation method of Rambo's Shed comes in picture. The company charges a fee for every booking and rental made through its website.
Apart from the service fee, it also charges 3% of the total amount to the accommodation owner as credit card processing charges for each booking.

From A Star To A Heart
That effort began with a total site redesign just four months ago, centering around "Wish Lists," which are lists of lust-worthy properties that users create themselves. Today, 45% of their users engage with Wish Lists, and over a million have been created. Perhaps none of it would have happened if they hadn’t seen just how radically a few simple changes can remake people’s relationship to the site.

What Uber represents is not just a single startup but a new way of thinking about personal resources and infrastructure: the stuff we own, the skills and free time we possess, the untapped potential all around us.
One of Uber’s investors, entrepreneur and venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar, calls it an example of an “excess capacity” company. “eBay, which lets people sell unneeded stuff from their garages, was the original excess-capacity company,” he says. “This is the next generation.” If this new model of resource maximization succeeds, it won’t just put extra money in the pockets of everyday people like Jankosky and other Uber drivers.
It will also change the way we think about work and consumption, with every purchase becoming a potential investment, every idle hour a potential paycheck. In an Uberized world, there will literally be no such thing as a free ride, because every seat will be filled with a paying customer.

Airbnb’s massive growth has inspired many entrepreneurs to start websites based on its business model.

Airbnb offers free listing feature to property owners where they can share details of available living spaces. Travelers can thus search for available accommodation and book it for the desired dates. The booking process and the monetary transactions are handled by Airbnb. This is where the revenue generation method of Airbnb comes in picture. The company charges a fee for every booking made through its website.

Another area set to boom, he predicts, is the sharing of expensive equipment for gardening, DIY and even farming

 [or hunting gear which Rambo's Shed is all about].

"These are all things that are bought, used extremely little and are likely to be shared. Social platforms will play a big role in this and open up all these categories, because people can just say, 'I need this' and there's an instant audience. All these [sharing economy] sites have log-ins with Facebook, Twitter and Google+, which removes the friction, enabling us to make more rational use of our assets [like these]. That's one of the reasons why the sharing economy is here to stay."

The heart, by contrast, was aspirational. "It showed us the potential for something bigger," Gebbia tells Co.Design. And in particular, it made them think about the subtle limitations of having a search-based service. "You have to have search," Gebbia says. "But what if you don’t know where you want to go?"

Outwardly, these are similar to a pinboard you might set up on Pinterest—it’s just a list of places you really, really want to visit that’s designed to be shared. You can broadcast your Wish List additions on Facebook; you can see the Wish Lists friends have created; you can share the Wish Lists with others, for trips you’re planning. But the bigger picture is that Airbnb’s listings become content. And as content, the Wish Lists offer a way to unlock listings that would otherwise float in the ether, undiscovered.

But the Wish Lists also serve to change users’ relationship with the site. Instead of visiting just to book rooms, they might visit simply for fun. Long term, that’s where Airbnb’s brand equity will come from. It’s what could keep the site top-of-mind in that instant when a potential customer begins planning a trip but just before they’ve started searching hotel listings online. It’s a lesson that other companies pondering the move away from search and toward social discovery, would do well to emulate.

(Coders: Airbnb actually open-sourced this bit of magic at infinity.js, as a gesture of goodwill to the coding community.) The magic lies in the fact that the scrolling is so effortless even though the images are so big;
This might seem like a minor detail, but as any good engineer will tell you, speed equals engagement. By keeping people scrolling down the page, by seamlessly tickling their urge to find another gem, that simple bit of scrolling code reaps untold gains in customer gratification. And that’s important because the site, if it really is to be a socially driven magnet powered by content, will need to prove that the content is great, with every single visit. One way to do that is to get people to literally see more listings, effortlessly.
