There is a lot of buzz going on about internet companies and IPOs and rumor has it that all the impatient real estate capital is starting to foray into virtual real estate, the internet! That’s right, experts are starting to beat their drums about internet companies that have stood the test of time and have found ways to generate revenue after the 2000 crash. With the recent acquisition of Huffington Post for $315 million in cash, the LinkedIn IPO at 100 x’s earnings and the “Russian Google” Yandex IPO screaming 55% in its first day of trading, one starts to wonder if internet companies are back in play… we sure hope so!
Escapeartist is a globally recognized authority on the subject of international living and a top 1% ranked website in the world. With 2380 #1 search listings in Google and 8000+ Top 3 Google Rankings, over 1,000,000 unique/organic visitors per month, 400,000 opt-in subscribers and high “Page Rank” web pages Escapeartist has the search engine horsepower and the global reach to become “The Huffington Post” of International living.
Escapeartist is on the move and for the first time in 15 years has decided to seek a qualified strategic or operational investor and expand its scope of operations. The proven search engine dominance, current economic conditions, and growing dissatisfaction with first world policy, has perfectly positioned Escapeartist in the path of an unprecedented “massive global migration” and quest for increased quality of life results .
Over the next decade, hundreds of millions of people around the world will be actively seeking cross-border relocation to ‘Escape” from the obvious:
- Increased costs of living
- Increased taxes
- Increased health care costs
- Increased cost of tuition
- Increased litigation
- Loss of personal and financial privacy.
In the last 12 months we have launched successful initiatives with 10 new strategic partners, we have added five regionalized and topic specific e-zines and launched the first international lifestyle online dating and social network marketing company called EscapeDates.
Through an innovative domain leasing program, Escapeartist has expanded its coverage on France, Mexico, Colombia Health and Wellness, Asset Protection, US Based Cash flow Properties, International Dating and Alternative Energy. We have plans to add a minimum of ten additional partnerships by the end of 2011.
Our future plans include additional revenue opportunities with expansion into Medical Tourism, International Home Business, Destination Club Memberships, a non-dedicated real estate agent network and a made for TV travel show called ‘The Escapeartist’. Over the next five years our strategic plan is to triple our web traffic, double our subscriber base, and expand our coverage to include Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

The Largest Private Investment Promotion Agency in the World
When Escapeartist points its media efforts at a particular country over 20 million people a year have an opportunity to gain insight into the opportunities of the featured country. Often many other ‘international living’ websites follow Escapeartist’s lead because they have experienced and benefited from the coverage that Escapeartist provides. Escapeartist’s new initiative called Investment Group International will establish over 40 global partnerships with Government Investment Promotion Agencies to create awareness for public and private projects. Our first strategic initiative with Colombia has proven to be very successful in its first 6 months of operation. We currently have Argentina, Belize, Thailand and Brazil under development.
