At buildd, we are buildd-ing a one-stop platform to learn everything about startups & business from actual entrepreneurs. Join our community of startup enthusiasts to: 1. Read high-quality content 2. buildd your own learning journey 3. Share & curate content that others can benefit from We are making learning fun, memorable and long-lasting. Here's our goal with buildd explained: ------------------------ Entrepreneurship is close to our heart. Over the last 5 years, we have built multiple startups — succeeded in some, failed in others. It has been a million mistakes to reach a million dollars. However, the mistakes we made, were made by startups before us and are being made by startups after us. This cycle had to be broken. But current social networks have a LOT of advise - given out of context and with questionable credibility. They miss our basic need — actionable steps to grow our startup. For those like us buildd-ing startups, we need to belong, relate and learn from others who understand the journey we are on. So, we started buildd, a community for startup enthusiasts to grow our startup with the help of those who are pursuing the same goals. DON'T just consume content anymore. Join. Learn. Do. Grow. Thrive.

We started out as just a repository of remote-first tools and then attempted to buildd a platform for remote-first product makers and remote workers to engage with each other. The goal with Remote Tools was to it easier for remote products with specific use-cases to cut through the noise and reach their target audience - be it beta users or paid subscribers in a more efficient manner. We attempted to buildd a remote community called Remote Clan along with this to facilitate our growth in the remote work industry. However, we were unsuccessful in this venture. Instead, we applied all the SEO knowledge we had gained to grow the traffic on our website to beyond a million visits a month. Now, we monetize that traffic through ads.
