Summary

Recently, the social media platform raised $2.6 million (approx £2 million) funding in a seed round, led by Fuel Ventures, to help people organise their social presence and build greater personal connections with their audiences. With the support of Fuel Ventures, we can continue to build on our successful test phase and continue to make it easier than ever for people to find and connect, even those with audiences that have grown to a point where they’re otherwise uncontactable.” Social media networks like Instagram and Twitter have limitations on adding links in profiles. Unlike LinkTree, OnlyFans and Cameo, this service is free and has premium features such as analytics and customisation. Mark Pearson, founder and managing partner of Fuel Ventures added, “If you want to learn more about an influencer, there’s one place you know to look: that link in bio. We are excited to be part of Tom, Derrick, and the team’s journey to build a global platform that defragments users’ online presence.” Direct.me was officially launched in Summer 2020 after spending nine months in beta testing.
