Wow, how time flies. Exactly one year ago, we went live with this website!
I'm really happy what happened in the last 12 months and how active the community is.
Some Facts About The Community
To run a website for Swing DJs is for sure a micro niche project because you write only for a bunch of people who are interested in a very specific topic.
However, there is a need and here are some numbers to prove that:
- Unique website visitors August 2013: 1670
- Newsletter subscribers: 480
- Facebook Fans: 1200
- Twitter Followers: 170
- Google+ Swing DJ community members: 190
Goals For The Upcoming Year
Through different analysis I found out that the website is loading too slow and that the theme I'm using is mostly responsible for that.
Having that said, there will be a redesign within the next month to speed up the experience. I will switch to the Genesis framework (for the WordPress geeks among you).
The new them will also feature more different categories of content on the front side to help you navigate faster.
I'm still looking for contributors, writers, video jockeys or whatever who are willing to share their knowledge with the Swing DJ community.
Don't think you're not able to do that. What do you think how I got started? Just by doing it!
So, don't hesitate and shoot me a message to discuss about your ideas.
