Disclaimer: I’m the Chief Evangelist for Zooomr. Yep, that means I work there.
Well a little while back we decided that we’d give free Zooomr Pro accounts to all bloggers. It was kind of a crazy idea but our thinking was that as we were building a lot of tools specific for bloggers (trackbacks, easy cut and paste html blogging code, etc.) that bloggers ought to be naturally good users for Zooomr.
Our thinking was that since we’re small and need to get the word out that this seemed like a pretty good way to do it. And thanks to you it has been going nuts. You bloggers have been signing up in droves and I’ll we can say is thank you, like 10 times over.
And we want to make sure that everyone knows that our offer still stands. Sign up for Zooomr today. Upload a photo. Blog it. And then simply enter your blog post url into our Proitizer and you will be upgraded to Pro. Kris wrote up a very easy step by step procedure on how to do this today at the Zooomr blog.
And before you say, so what, if something’s free it can’t be good. Check out what Pro account users get at Zooomr.
1. An advertising free photo sharing experience.
2. 2.5 gigabytes of bandwidth a month of uploading (on average that will allow you to upload over 1,700 photos a month and is a higher bandwidth allocation than many of our competitors)
3. Unlimited downloading bandwidth (including the ability to host your images for blogging purposes).
4. Unlimited photo storage space.
5. No photo or file size limit, true actual backups. (feel free to host even your highest resolution orignal images as a true and perfect backup copy of your original, keep in mind though that extremely high res images will take much longer to upload due to their size).
You also of course get lots of kick ass features that other photo sharing sites don’t have like trackbacks and super slick geotagging. We just added SmartSets to the site with our 2.0 rollout as well as improved geotagging and other various design, speed and infrastructure enhancements. And we’ve got lots more great features to roll out for you in the weeks ahead. Thanks to those bloggers who have joined Zooomr and thanks for helping us spread the good word. So what are you waiting for? Come on over — it’s hot outside and we’ve got air conditioning in here. Click here to sign up now.
