I am in London for the World Travel Market and last night I was relaxing after a long day when the Joobili twitter account suddenly started buzzing. Apparently Joobili was featured on a UK television program called The Gadget Show. We were the number 2 best website you have never heard of – well not you – but the average Brit has never heard of. While I’d much rather be among the top websites everyone has heard of, you have to start somewhere, right.
Now I have no idea how popular this show is so I would be curious to hear from anyone in the UK whether this is a popular show or a late-night space filler. [UPDATE: Found out this shows airs on Monday nights at 8pm and has a viewership of over 1 million] Either way, it sent a big enough wave of traffic to Joobili.com last night that the site crashed and we had to scramble to get it back up again. So without further adieu I present Joobili’s television debut:
While I’m on the subject, we also received high scores from the Daily Mail as the Website of the Week.
