If you’ve ever gone through the hair-greying process of trying to get some punk who lives in his mom’s basement (because they all do) to sell you that domain name or that twitter handle that rightfully belongs to your brand for a reasonable price that doesn’t parallel buying a brand new Ferrari GTO and heading out for a Fear and Loathing-style, blotto week in Hefner’s Sky Villa in Vegas (or trading naked pictures of yourself – a request I got once), then you’ll appreciate today’s tool.
KnowEm let’s you plug in your brand (or anything, really) and instantly check 575 social networks, 150 domain names and the USPTO database to see where you can still claim your brand (or where someone else has already beaten you to it). Whether it’s your own personal name or an established brand name or a startup that may one day be the next
And if you’re short on time you can have the fine folks at KnowEm do all of the work for you. Sweet. Suck on that one, basement punks.
