Hello Everyone, we hope that you all had a very merry Christmas and holiday season. We also wish all of you the best for 2016.
With your support, here is our timeline and expected growth:
From launch to date we've had over 4,000 sessions each month; from December 1 to today (December 29) there has been more than 3,000 new visits to our website with almost 800 returning members. With a conservative estimate of a weekly 5.55% increase in new site memberships (we have averaged 24% monthly since launch), we can expect to reach over 7,000 registered users by the end of 2016, and over 100,000 by the end of 2017. By pledging your support with at least $5.00 CAD we can hopefully reach our Kickstarter goal and obtain a new and much needed larger capacity server before we deploy our next-stage strategies. By reaching our targeted campaign dollars we can deploy our new server and increase our advertising budget (for 3 months) so that we can achieve the 100K amount of registered users by early to mid-2017. During the time to reach this amount of users, further development will take place to increase the likelihood of increasing the percentage of new users joining our site and by adding more features to keep our members and guests engaged longer (our average "Member" session is 3.7 minutes).
There is only 10 days left to receive your pledges. We hope that you will see the benefit that your support can do in helping us out with our startup.
