Review on Seth Godin/Squidoo communitywebsiteBusiness ventures
In 1995, Godin launched Yoyodyne, which used contests, online games, and scavenger hunts to market companies to participating users. In August 1996, venture-capital firm Flatiron Partners invested $4 million in Yoyodyne in return for a 20% stake. Over one million viewers visited the site, and the
companies America Online, American Express, H&R Block, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Sony Music, Sprint, and Volvo have used its services. At Yoyodyne, Godin published Permission Marketing: Turning strangers into friends and friends into customers. In 1998, he sold Yoyodyne to Yahoo! for about $30 million and became Yahoo's vice president of direct marketing, a position he held until 2000.
In March 2006, Godin launched Squidoo, a community website that allowed users, called "lens masters," to create pages (called "lenses") for subjects of interest. The site donated 5 percent of the profits to charity, and 50 percent to the lens
masters. Godin and Squidoo were profiled on CNN and in the Washington Post while the website was given Top-prize in SXSW's community/wiki category. In July 2008, Squidoo was one of the 500 most visited sites in the world. On August 15, 2014,
