The rise of social media as a mainstay in our daily lives has also brought about the rise of a whole new career opportunity: the social media influencer. The size of your social media following can give you enough clout for companies to take notice and choose to work with you to promote their products and services. This week’s #WebsiteWednesday, Moon.xyz, knows the influencer field better than anyone, and they have the tools to set your influencer marketing career up for success.
Moon.xyz launched on September 19th, 2018 after months of buildup and teasers on their memorably branded social media pages (@GetMoonxyz on all platforms). Moon.xyz’s network of influencers now has an amassed total of over 200 million followers to their collective names, and that number is jumping higher and higher every time they welcome another influencer to the fold.
The spectacularly successful rollout Moon.xyz has enjoyed can be attributed to the transparency and accessibility their platform provides for influencers. A one stop place to manage all social media profiles, real-time analytics detailing profile reach and potential interest, and simple tracking of ongoing conversations with brands are just a few of the tools influencers on Moon.xyz’s platform can wield to leverage their following into brand partnerships.
Of course, you don’t create a hot new business like Moon.xyz without garnering a little buzz, so it’s no surprise that Moon.xyz was selected to participate in the ALPHA program at Web Summit 2019, which took place earlier this month in Lisbon. At the event, which has been called “the best technology conference on the planet” by Forbes, Moon.xyz had the opportunity to pitch a potential investment to some of tech’s most influential founders and investors.
“We’re on a mission to make the influencer industry more transparent — by allowing creators to publicly share their rates — and more accessible to brands. We also want more brands to tap into this booming industry, and to realize that no matter their industry or size, there is an influencer for them.
Every day, we are inspired by the motivation, drive and ambition of our influencers. It took them years building an audience before being able to monetize it. They are shooting for the Moon, and we’re here to help them at every step of the way.
Our .xyz domain name represents our long-term vision for Moon, creating lasting collaborations between brands and influencers.”
– Nicolas Spehler, Co-founder and CMO of Moon.xyz
After getting their business off to a great start, Moon.xyz has poised their company to expand and evolve to meet the needs of influencers who trust their platform, and their .xyz domain is ready to follow right along with them on this exciting journey they’ve embarked on.
It’s been over 2 years since Milk.xyz was featured in our #WebsiteWednesday series, but they’ve been up to a lot of exciting things since then. We’ve been keeping an eye on them and all the exciting avenues they’ve excelled in, and we thought it was time for our #GenXYZ readers to get an up to date on Milk.xyz as well. So without further ado, we present the first #WebsiteWednesday check in on Milk.xyz.
When we first introduced Milk.xyz to our readers, they had just rebranded from Mi.lk to Milk.xyz, and already boasted a strong readership for their content centered around music, streetwear, art, and culture. Now 2 years on, Milk.xyz has exploded into a multi-armed pop culture giant, expanding beyond simply reporting on fashion and music to rolling out collaborations with notable designers like The Arrivals and KidSuper.
They’ve also expanded their media repertoire by welcoming two of the hottest comedians out there, Desus and Mero, A.K.A the Bodega Boys. Fresh off wrapping their hit show on Viceland, the dynamic duo have brought their superb podcast and loyal fanbase with them to their new home at Milk.xyz’s Milk studios, where they crack jokes about hip hop, celebrities, current events, and more alongside A-list starts like Jonah Hill. As the Bodega Boys would say, Milk.xyz’s brand is strong.
Milk.xyz have taken their brand to stellar heights and have staked their place in the culture through hustle and creativity. Throughout Milk.xyz’s rise, their .xyz domain has played an integral role in helping them stand out from the crowd, just as your .xyz domain can help you amplify your voice and express your individuality online.
These days if you want to have success online with your business, you’re likely to hear a lot of recommendations that you get an app. But making an app can be difficult if you are not an experienced coder, or costly if you need to hire someone to develop it for you.

“We wish to simplify the app building process by using our powerful content SDK and conquering one domain at a time. Our Appmaker Plugin is the top rated app-creation plugin available in the WordPress Plugin store.
Keeping a .xyz domain has enabled us to diversify into other services as well, for example, our new product Web2Desk, which converts any website into a desktop app for Mac, Windows and Linux in one click.

A personal website is a place where you can let your creative mind run free and share your unique personality with the world. This week we’re highlighting photographer TomRoss.xyz, who does just that, and his work will inspire you to get your own personal .xyz site and start sharing your imagination with the world.
Tom Ross is an internationally renowned photographer who specifically works taking pictures of architecture. Tom puts a unique spin on his architectural photography by capturing people and scenery in addition to rooms and their design, which paints a full story to go along with the architecture itself. Tom has worked on projects for notable clients like Nike, Adidas, and the National Gallery of Victoria, and many of his photographs from these projects are available right on his site.
In addition to his contracted work, Tom recently published a photography and poetry book along with Michael Roper and Stuart Geddes called Among Buildings, which reflects on the beauty of Melbourne. Tom also uses his Instagram, which is memorably branded using his .xyz site url, to share photos from his professional shoots and, in his words, “frequent aeroplane window pictures.”
Having a personal website provides you with your own slice of the internet on which you can build anything you like.
