Welcome to the new and improved IZEA.com. This site is the first step towards a radical reinvention of our company and our core platforms. It won’t be the last time you see a new IZEA.com this year… and the next version won’t look anything like what you see today.
In October of last year, I had a premonition. I saw the future of influencer marketing and it was awesome… but it didn’t resemble anything currently offered in our space. It was based on a completely different architecture, user experience and marketplace dynamic. We have learned so much since we launched PayPerPost in 2006. The world of social media has evolved and we have evolved along with it. Evolution is great – but it is time for the creation of an entirely new species.
In the IZEA labs, we are developing a new platform that is faster, more flexible and radically different than anything we have brought to market.
We call this platform Native Ad Exchange.
It’s not just another marketplace, it is a framework for an entire ecosystem that supports Influencers, Brands, Agencies, PR Firms, Talent Agents, Small Businesses and existing Publisher Networks. Multi-platform, multi-lingual, multi-currency, desktop, mobile, tablet. It will include what our customers, team members and partners have asked for and much, much more. We are currently working with our closest partners to hone the offering before releasing it to the general public.
Over the years, I have worked on hundreds of websites and apps. I can tell you that this is the most ambitious project I have ever been a part of. It is testing the limits of all of our team members and challenging our collective intellect. After months of planning, we have finally started coding and, in a few quarters, you will see the results of all our hard work.
I want to take a minute to thank everyone on the product development team for your ideas, solutions and dedication to date… it is about to get crazy up in here! Let’s make some magic. : )
