IQZone Launches Mobile Classifieds

IQZone.jpgIn a bid to be a kind of craigslist-for-cellphones, Mobile firm IQZone rolled out a free service that lets users create, send and post photo and video ads to online classifieds via mobile phone, according to MediaPost.

Here’s how it works: IQzone’s service, called “Snap, Send, Sell” is geared toward the under-30 market–“namely, college students aiming to sell cars and textbooks, or find roommates. Users take photos or video of their merchandise, include the ad copy with price and ZIP-code info, and then send to ad@iqzone.com. The application then categorizes the item for sale and submits the ad to a number free online classifieds and aggregators like oodle, edgeio, and LiveDeal.”

Meanwhile, Yellow Book USA posted links to a set of online video ads–“spots that the local search powerhouse crafted to give advertisers a preview of its forthcoming video classified offering. The two services are the latest examples of how video is shaping the development of both online and mobile classifieds,” the report said.
