100 days of The Self-Publisher’s Showcase
We figured it might be fitting at this early milestone to take the opportunity to say a big “Thank You!” to you all for all of your support and interest so far. We would also like to use this opportunity to reveal how things are progressing…
OK. First let’s talk numbers. We launched 100 days ago on the 1st July. Since then over 11’000 unique visitors have landed here on our site, with over 17’000 website visits, nearly 200 people have liked our Facebook page and over 6000 lovely people have followed us on Twitter. We have just under 100 fantastic authors showcasing their work with us across 17 genres. New authors are joining daily, which only adds to the wonderful array of talent on offer for all of you readers out there. We’re confident that your new favorite author resides right here, have you found them yet?
We have done a wide variety of interviews with authors from a multitude of genres, launched our book reviews, had some great, original guest blogs and short stories, assisted with some awesome funding projects (our first one ended at over 170% funded!) and even had a zombie-themed Haiku giveaway.
But the fun certainly doesn’t stop now. We aim to continue working as hard as ever. We’ll continue to live tweet around the clock and will not stop until all of our authors are receiving the recognition they deserve.
The response so far from everyone has been nothing short of amazing. We’re hoping it is encouraged in part by our obvious love of what we do… At least we hope it is. We are always around for any questions or requests, so whether you are an author looking to showcase your work or a reader looking for suggestions on what to read next, just drop us an email, tweet or msg.
Once again, thank you to everyone who has been a part of our journey so far. We appreciate each and every one of you. The RT’s, the favorites. The likes and shares. The re-pins. Every action that you take, helps us to improve and continue our journey.
As for the next 100 days? We think you’d better just stay with us on this exciting journey, it’s going to get even better!
Paul and the Team.
