I Completed The Challenge

Hip Hip Hurrah! I made it to the end of the 30 Day List Building and Blogging Challenge.  I am so happy with my achievement and very happy with the 30 blog posts that I was able to create.

The Traffic Stats

I took a look at the traffic stats over this period and wrote about it in a previous post (Weekly Roundup – 7th April 2013).  For your convenience, I have copied that section and pasted here.

This information has been gleaned from my Google Analytics.

Traffic Stats for Febuary 2013

  • 399 visitors
  • 65.33% were new visitors
  • 34.67% were returning visitors
  • 1,151 page views
  • 3.26 minutes were spent on the site on average per visit
  • 51.90% bounce rate

Traffic Stats for March 2013

  • 600 visitors
  • 53.10% were new visitors
  • 46.90% were returning visitors
  • 2,547 page views
  • 4.25 minutes were spend on the site on average per visit
  • 50.56% bounce rate

Well, the numbers seem to be going in the right direction. I am over the moon with the amount of page views, and time that people are spending on the site. Good news all round I think. I will have to take a look at my stats in a few months time to compare the results.

The List Building Stats

I started the challenge with 4 people on my list. They had signed up to my previous email account. The bad news is that these four didn’t sign up to the new list.

But the good news is that I have gained 25 brand new subscribers over the course of this challenge. Thank you for signing up. I hope that my newsletters are fun and informative.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesistate to get in touch. We are all about building interactive communties here so feel free to get in touch.

My Facebook Fan Page Stats

I started the challenge with 3 Facebooks fans and today I have 20 people who clicked on that Thumbs Up button. Thank you again. I still have to make more of an effort to post on Facebook and I hope that now I will have a lot more time to get to doing that. :)
