Got this email today…. as I told my team today the way to win in the internet business is to have moments like this over and over again. Every interaction with a customer counts–so make them count! It sucks that we don’t have EVERY search term, and it sucks that we have to explain to people that this is an alpha, but when we get a hit we knock it out of the park.
That’s what is why I can’t sleep at night and I’m working 18 hours a day seven days a week on this project: it’s helping people. I feel the same energy I had when I started Silicon Alley Reporter and Weblogs, Inc. — in fact I feel 10x that energy.
It’s because of that energy I can say this with a straight face and without reservation:
- If you want to help your friends and family send them to Mahalo.
- If you want to help your friends and family send them a Mahalo result/URL/email forward when they are looking to buy a product, get more info on a band, or take a trip. We have the cleanest, spam-free, and most targeted results. Save your friends from the pain of using machine search engines! 🙂
- If you want to help everyone on the internet add the Mahalo pages to you like best to delicious, stumbleupon and facebook.
- If you want to help everyone on the internet give us more feedback (suggested links, report bad links, and post to the message boards). The more feedback we get on the pages we have the better we can make them.
OK, here is the email.
I am in the midst of planning a family vacation in Vancouver and Maholo was about 50 times more helpful for me than Google.
And you’re only in Alpha? Holy crap…
