3 months with CommunityOfSweden.com

Hi!
Here’s a brief summary of the status of CommunityOfSweden.com which launched on nov 1:st 2007, three months ago.

We started rolling out marketing activities in december and we’re still going down the list of activities.

CommunityOfSweden.com is going well! We’ve already raised our goals for 2008 and we’ve got several exciting new features that will be released during the year.

Some numbers:

  • Members: ~1500
  • Photos: ~2100
  • The quality of the photos has exceeded my wildest expectations.
    Click here to take a look for yourself.

  • Stories: 192
  • There are some amazingly exciting and inspirational stories here which are fascinating to read.

Currently most visits come USA, Sweden, Germany, UK and Holland.
Bonus info: the most active members are the Italians :)

A couple of quotes that really made my day:

“I’m having a lot of fun in the community and I hope to visit Sweden for real in the near future. The community is really helping me to plan my visit.”

- Barry, UK.

“My neighbour and I were discussing yesterday, over the garden fence, what it is about your site that is so welcoming compared to others. It really is. Perhaps it is just because it is Swedish – clean, tidy, bright and positive. Cheers.”

- Brian, UK
