SquidZipper By Squidoo For Real Estate Agents

The folks over at Squidoo, the popular real estate online publishing platform and community, have launched their latest and greatest service.

They’re calling it SquidZipper – a new site that makes it easy for you to become the local, trusted real estate expert in your community.

We think smart Realtors like you know more about their neighborhoods than anyone else — where to find the best coffee shops, what local businesses to support, where the best new homes are, which school districts to avoid, and lots more. It’s free, supersimple, and fun to do. And a great way to meet new clients. Become an online Mayor and stand out from the crowd.

How to Promote Your Real Estate Business Online for Free with Squidoo SquidZipper Lenses

Nine fun facts about Squidoo – as of December 2009:

1. Squidoo has well over 1,000,000 hand built lenses. That’s more than a million pages created by real, remarkable people.

2. Squidoo has been reviewed by the New York Times, Mashable, BoingBoing and sites and papers around the world. But the reviews we’re most proud of: those from our lensmasters, who talk about Squidoo and their lenses on their blogs.

2.5 We call our pages “lenses” because each is one person’s focus on something that she’s interested in, something that matters to her.

3. Squidoo was founded in 2005 and was live to the world in 2006. The founding team consisted of just four people. In 2009 we’re only at 6 full time people.

4. As of December 2009 we are one of the 100 most popular websites in the US.

5. Squidoo grew 91% in 2008.

6. We launched the site with the tagline “Everyone’s an expert (on something)” We have since learned that while this is indeed true, most people are too humble to consider themselves serious experts. Rather, most people think of themselves as hobbyists, passionates, interested (and interesting) folks. And that’s what we’ve got here. Taglines are overrated.

7. We generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual royalties to charities and to our users.

8. A third of our lensmasters donate royalties to charity.
