It’s been three months since my son and I embarked on a project to get a website up and running. Now that March is over and we both put in a very dedicated month I wanted to compare the Google Analytics. When the site started my goal was to ad a business a day. That goal wasn’t achieved until the middle of February. In the middle of March we started posting 2 businesses a day and have seen the number skyrocket. We now have over 100 businesses listed and I look forward to seeing 300 by the end of April!
Now for the stats:
If we can get another month of 180% increase April should have 783 visits. Not to bad for 4 months work. I think we should actually see a higher increase because we will be going from 100 businesses listed to 300. Therefore I predict that your visits will be over 1,000.
So how many visits do we need to make some money? My son is working for a cell phone. The phone is $100 and the plan is $26.50 per month. Because he gets 1/2 of the profit of the website we need to generate $250 in profit. I think we are a few months off from that – unless we can get a sponsor or nice local ad contract.
