If someone told me that on August 5th, 2004 when we tore down this entire site to rebuild it from scratch…that we’d be able to help over 5,000 authors to promote over 25,000 of their articles that are listed with our site before our first year was up, I’m not sure I’d have believed ’em.
First, a very big public thank you to the 5000+ authors who have sent in their best articles! Muchas Gracias!
Now I sit here contemplating how we can help 15,000 more authors before Summer to send in 75,000 articles.
Truth of the matter is that it’s not a 1:4 ratio, meaning we have about 85% of the 5000 authors have only sent in 1 article. Reminds me a lot of how businesses should find a way to do more business with their existing clients rather than always trying to find new ones to serve.
Do you have any suggestions for how we could encourage the 80%+ of authors who register with us but only send in one article?
