Full-time influencer Yazan Al Koudsi, best known as Zizotravel online, has been around long enough to know that being a prominent figure on social media necessitates constant reinvention in order to stay relevant and interesting to users. After six productive and exciting years as an influencer, just when most people would think that he has reached the pinnacle of his career, Yazan comes up with a new way to elevate his game – becoming a real estate agent who helps clients find their dream houses.
The former flight attendant of Flydubai Airlines has always been inclined to bring happiness and excitement in the lives of his 160k followers on Instagram and 120k fans on TikTok. Uploading comedy skits on his social media accounts has always been his way of making people laugh and smile. Their response has always been overwhelming, making Yazan Al Koudsi one of the most-watched content creators on TikTok with 200 million views and 50 viral videos in less than a year.
Before deciding to try out his luck in the real estate industry, Yazan has had the rare privilege of traveling to 75 countries and enjoying the sites and culture of each destination. His exposure to so many thriving cities around the world makes him the perfect person to ask for travel tips and recommendations. He has done collaborations with luxury resorts in different regions, and his insights on their accommodations have been something that his followers always valued.
More than creating comedic content, Yazan is also a man who appreciates the lively culture of Chicago as he is always present to cover the latest events and newly opened restaurants in the area. His followers are especially thrilled that he is taking the time to feature restaurants within the city, something that no other influencer has done yet. Additionally, his followers always watch out for his latest product recommendations. If they want to hear about what is trending in Chicago and the world, Yazan Al Koudsi can be expected to be the first to break the news.
“I always do new ideas and coverages no one did before in Chicago City. I am super active on social media, specifically Instagram and TikTok, to give people the best experience they deserve,” he explains.
Yazan is a graduate of Business Administration major in Marketing from Syria. He won the 2017 award in Dubai for Best Food Coverages for the Holy Month of Ramadan. His 30-day coverage of the most luxurious places for Iftar, the evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset, was also given recognition.
At this point in his life, Yazan Al Koudsi does not see himself doing anything else apart from being a successful social media influencer and real estate agent who makes a lasting impact on the lives of his clients. For him, nothing is as satisfying as helping a person or a whole family find their dream house. And nothing will make him any happier than knowing he has helped people build a happy lifestyle through his social media content.
