I will overstep my position as co-administrator of this website to post something I know Ana would never do!
Only a few people know that this domain had been registered over a year ago and that this site had already gone through one or two incarnations but always managed to be left aside somehow.
It took the moral support of a lot of people for Ana to finally kick this project started!
Tomorrow it will be a month since we launched Candy Stitch and since many of you were also responsible for that, I thought I should share some rough balance data.
To my (almost daily) despair, Ana has only written 7 posts!
Any web professional would tell you that you cannot promote a service/product with just 7 posts, however, the truth is that those posts have originated an astonishing amount of hits: 2,500 visits, almost 8,000 pageviews, average visiting times over 7 minutes and over 60% of first time visitors.
On the chart below you will see 6 peaks corresponding to 6 of those 7 posts. Three of which were duly prepared and pondered, and the result is obvious.
What surprised me most was the reaction in the social networks. On Facebook, for example, the posts were progressively shared by people who had seen the link in a friend’s profile and that originated unbelievable amounts of hits.
Therefore we can see how the 74 actions (50 Likes + 24 Shares) have originated 32,412 impressions in the following image, taken from the statistics console from CandyStitch’s page on Facebook.
These numbers are, furthermore, incomplete! If we look at the list below, that is easy to understand based on the almost 100 people that have shared the Easter Biscuits post (from which I only know 3)!
Even on Instagr.am, a photo-sharing social network, I believe that the ever-growing number of people following, “liking” and commenting on our photos is not entirely due to my photographic skills.
And all these facts are why Ana would never write this post, because she would have to use words such as talent and merit, which she could never use while referring to herself!
Thank you all for your support =)
