Catching up with CollectorZoo: $100 Cash Promotion

As you know if you've been checking this blog in the last month, we're running a Collections Contest. It seems a good time, then, to revisit CollectorZoo, which aims to be the home for collectors on the web. When we last wrote about them, they had just launched their Sports Memorabilia Beta program. Now they're kicking things into high gear with a $100 cash card for whoever promotes the site the most.

"We officially launched CollectorZoo Beta at MoCCA Fest which was sponsored by the Society of Illustrators in NYC," said Founder William Hatzichristos. "The new platform is receiving positive feedback from our partners, new and old," he added. New are Squishable, some illustrators, Lamantia Gallery of Northport, and Steiner Sports gave the site new data to host. 

"We have a push to 2,500 subscribers by the end of May," said Hatzichristos. "The person or business that promotes the site the most gets a $100 cash card," he added.

Their development continues to bring the features that their subscribers are asking for. These includes a free, independent valuation tool, groups and forums that they can moderate, and assistance with loading their collections into our database.

As some of you have already taken photos of your fabulous collections (Contest Pinterest board here) for our Collections Contest, you may want to use those if you decide to join CollectorZoo.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! Thank you to all who have given service to our country. It's summer, and we're officially into yard sale season, so now is a great time to be a collector.

They are still in "beta" mode. The only items I saw are sport related.
