In April 2013, iBazar (www.ibazar.com.mx) was launched in Mexico as a free classifieds site that enables people to list products and services for sale or trade locally and safely. iBazar’s name took inspiration from traditional bazaars, markets and tianguis that are an important part of Mexican culture. The goal is to provide a simple, safe and free experience to buyers and sellers.
One of iBazar’s key differentiators is its responsive design platform. The new platform lets users interact with the full version of the site using any device, such as smartphone, tablet, or PC, without compromising any features. Flexible images and fluid grids also size correctly to fit different screen sizes. iBazar has advanced anti-fraud systems, as well as a dedicated team of professional scam-spotters. Safety is an important priority, and iBazar is committed to providing a safe platform for online transactions, and educating users about how to stay safe online.
iBazar MX was a 3-month project and used the latest technologies.

My biggest surprise has been seeing how much a small and dedicated team can accomplish in just a few months.
I joined eCG because I wanted to get back into SEO after spending some time focusing on paid search and other aspects of internet marketing. The SEO team here has a lot of great experts, so the move seemed like an excellent opportunity to hone my skills.
I enjoy working at eCG because the group manages to combine many of the benefits associated with startups and larger companies in one package.
