Thought I’d give you an update as to why we’ve been quieter than normal over the past 2 weeks:
We’ve shifted gears to work on infrastructure to pour more cement into our foundation so that we can support the future demands and opportunities of our membership base better… and this includes a serious mega-project that will give us internal guidance based on millions of transactions flowing through the site so that we can troubleshoot and access or view the trust-variable with each member more accurately.
Accounting/Finance: This week our new Accounting Manager was hired (it was 2002 since we last had a team/staff member for this position) and we’re bracing ourselves to begin taking on a flood of new clients for various projects (direct advertising, exposure/pr, lead-gen, and training/educational products).
Tech/Development: Our entire tech/dev team was shipped off to Washington DC for a week recently to get trained on advanced performance tuning of our database servers. As they apply the new lessons learned, you’ll probably never notice it but we’ll see it in increased uptime, increased speed and increased efficiency in program design.
Management Team: I’ve outlined a simple plan for how our management team must change and how I view the future of the services I’d like us to provide our stakeholders… so much of my and our internal obsession on quality controls, the need for more speed and user usability tracking doesn’t make it to the blog or EzineArticles newsletter, but hopefully everyone will notice the collective lift that these efforts create. :-)
Curious: What are your observations of how EzineArticles.com has been performing over the past 2-6 weeks?
