I worked on an idea I had over the last week and built https://repher.me. I want to get some feedback on it, and get advice on how to drive traffic to it.
It's a referral network for tech employees. You can request for referrals and as a verified employee you can give referrals, and your profile is only visible to potential referrers. As a referrer you're anonymous until you decide to reach out. I intend to keep it free-to-use and steer clear from potential bribery.
I "launched" yesterday by posting on Blind (anonymous social network with high concentration of tech employees), and got around 100 sign-ups, and posted on r/cscareerquestions but got instantly banned. I haven't thought too deeply on how I'm going to drive traffic to it, but I don't know what I can do beyond posting in different channels, which doesn't seem to scale.
Any advice and feedback would be appreciated!
