Directly.me Launches Monetized Social Network and Search Engine Where Users Get Paid for Who They Know and What They Know

July 9, 2013

The new service monetizes social networking with members offering bounties to get connected with the people they want to meet. Those who make introductions earn cash rewards and members can also profit by selling their knowledge, advice, expertise and experiences.

London, England (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Directly.me, the social network and search engine that pays members for connecting others with their contacts, is now live and available worldwide after a successful invite-only trial period. Directly.me allows members to monetize their contacts, knowledge, experience and skills. It’s a virtual marketplace where monetary value is placed on knowledge and connections.

Directly.me is a pay per message site which allows members to get in touch with anyone, directly. Members can offer any amount (a bounty) to get in touch with an important contact and fellow members who know the recipient receive a commission for making the connection.

"There’s a thin line between spam and success when you are contacting people you don’t know, important people have gatekeepers and spam filters," said Rocky Mirza, Founder and CEO of Directly.me. "One of the best ways to meet someone is through a personal introduction. Directly.me helps get messages through by creating incentives for those making introductions and for the recipients of messages."

Directly.me allows members to leverage their personal networks and profit from knowing people that others want to get in touch with. During the sign-up process members have the option to ‘protect’ their personal contacts from various social networks ensuring they receive an exclusive share of future profits that their contacts earn on the site.

Beyond introductions, protecting contacts and bounties, the site also allows everyone to list their knowledge, expertise and experiences on personal headline pages and offer them for sale.

"You can sell your personal intellectual property, in the form of business experience, research, images, videos, code, and more," added Mirza. "Members can create Headlines for the information they possess and it is automatically sent to those who have shown interest in the subject."

The private-beta has generated over two-million direct connections so new members can already find important potential business contacts with a quick search.

Members have the option of donating the proceeds of their activities on Directly.me to a charity of their choice. For more information, visit Directly.me.
