3 months after launch, there were more than 300,000 websites created. The secret was that website can be created in seconds by converting LinkedIn profile, and easily customized in minutes to provide more details which LinkedIn profile can't, and there was a referral award if user chooses to share Branded.me with their entire network. And, there was a famous influencer tweeting about it. There was also an acquisition offer from Amazon, which was rejected, and CEO had plans to turn it into a social network for professionals. In mid 2015 I decided to leave because I wasn't motivated to work on a social network and had some good freelance offers. After social network, Branded.me then became a platform to find remote work and workers and got acquired in late 2016.
