ANNAPOLIS, Md. May 22, 2012 Qazoo.com , a new startup service, is looking to make the lead generation for businesses more transparent by reversing the way local businesses connect with potential customers.
Qazzoo.com removes the hurdles of online business generation by allowing real estate professionals to search, select, and directly connect with consumers with whom they have a matching product or service.
The site currently focuses on developing relationships for all facets of the real estate industry, including real estate agents, loan and mortgage companies, and credit repair services, offering a win-win for consumers and local businesses alike.
Consumers create free profiles that include information about their location and the homes or properties they want. Consumers can choose how much information they share, and can modify or remove their profile at any time. The more detail consumers include in their profiles, the higher their profiles appear in the search results.
Conversely, local real estate agents and businesses using Qazzoo.com can quickly and easily search consumer profiles that fit their particular criteria. Businesses can then view in-depth information about each profile for free, and connect with them by claiming "shares" of that user’s profile.
Qazzoo.com received several commitments to syndicate its search results to nearly 1,000 real estate websites during the two day convention.
To prevent businesses from spamming consumers, user profiles are broken up into a system of "shares," which limits the number of businesses who can contact them. This ensures businesses provide highly relevant offers and prevents consumers from receiving extraneous offers unrelated to their needs.
"When you boil it all down, everything is lead generation. The real estate industry is no different from SEO, PPC, and Daily Deal sites. Qazzoo has simplified the process by providing an open, direct approach for both consumers and merchants. The platform is powered by the consumer, and is open to everyone to connect with each other without all the superfluous smoke and mirrors, technology and expense of traditional online advertising," says Urbanski.
Due to its growing success, Qazzoo.com expects to expand to other industries in the coming months. The company plans to roll out its next vertical in the first quarter of 2013.
Designed to improve the online experience for consumers and small businesses, Qazzoo is a consumer powered search engine that connects consumers with local merchants. Qazzoo was designed to bring purpose to online search in order to save time, money and energy for both consumers and merchants.
