GlassDoor.com - The new Mystery Site - What is it?

By
Real Estate Agent with Desert Gold Realty - Mesquite NV Homes For Sale Mesquite NV Realtor

Glass Door - the new Mystery site! A new Something or Other Site about Something or Other....

Ok, I am intrigued as I guess I am supposed to be - curiosity killed the cat!jpeg file cat sitting in front of door

Richard Barton (who founded Zillow and Expedia) is the founder of the Mystery Site.

All they say about it is that it is a very exciting project and fun to create.

They seem to be creating a "be the first to join" buzz, but don't say what it is that I am waiting for.

If you go to the site GlassDoor.com you just get the very impressive bio of the creators, but not a word about what it is.

This new stealth site is hiring - they need Somebody to do Something or Other.

Hey Mark - So much web stuff coming out, all with hype to get our attention.  It worked on me!

Hi Jeanne!  - I don't know, door opening, new adventure in real estate, transparency, trigger words and meanings.

Karen - You ever watch a commercial for a movie, go see the movie because of it, turns out the commercial clip was the only good part?

Gita - I'll keep ya posted!

Joanne - yes, I posted about Facebook once and mentioned Joel Burslem's blog - I bet he wondered why he was getting all those comments from ActiveRainers!

Marchel - they are sure bragging, but about what?

Sounds like they are relying on curiosity to create buzz about the website to me. They're not the first to come up with the idea, but some people have failed miserable by attempting the same thing. But, it always worked on me, I will keep an eye on it.

Hi JL - I just checked to see if they have launched it, no - but I see that several people wrote about it on different blog forums, so the buzz thing must be working for them.

Buzz, Buzz, what a way to launch a new site.  Create the mystique and make us wait.  Though putting up a one pager to age the domain name is better than nothing.

Erby - How long does a website actually have to age before it does any good?
