The best compliment: being copied by a competitor

You know you created a good product and valuable content when a competitor bluntly copies your stuff. So, lucky us, we know we did something right. Let’s take a look at our Super Heroes quiz:

Now, let’s take a look at one of our competitors. Click here to compare. Looks quite similar, doesn’t it? They are still missing the cool pictures, though.

Probably the world’s best business model

You know you’ve got an awesome business model when so many people want to use your service / buy your products that you can’t satisfy the demand. That’s exactly what happened to Kiva, a social microlending website. We’ve discussed it before, actually we invested some money as well in return to our users answering a questionnaire. A couple of weeks ago I got a message that repayment on one of our loans had started. I logged in and tried to lend more money but there were no people to lend to. The service is so popular that it is hard finding new borrowers. Today, I checked it out again, and – lucky me – I found two new groups to reinvest our money. People not being able to invest their money fast enough, sounds a lot like some news about half a year ago. But it is still happening and this time it is “brick and mortar” investments.


Stay tuned!
