It pays to be on Real Bird!
Well, call me a bragger, but I just could not stop myself of sharing some stunning numbers with you. More importantly, these numbers are achieved not by us only, but by you - RealBird members - and your clients, the proud owners of their for-sale properties.
So let's see RealBird's Y2009 by the numbers (selected metrics from the vast information that is available, focusing only on the RealBird Listing Publisher service, excluding the RealBird Property Search and other web properties):
- 16,415 is the total registered RealBird members since the launching of RealBird
- 2,772 (or an average 7 new members per day) is the new member registrations in 2009
- $4,306,729,732 is the total dollar value of the listings currently promoted via RealBird (exlcuding rental, pending and sold properties) - that's 4.3 billion dollars worth of inventory advertised on RealBird just in 2009
- 14,450 listings are the total number of new listings published in 2009
- Listing unique view increase from 2008 to 2009: +41.56% (source: Google Analytics)
- Listing page view increase from 2008 to 2009: +75.40% (source: Google Analytics)
- Average time on a listing website increase from 2008 to 2009: +10.83% (source: Google Analytics)=
Finally, here is an eyecandy. A chart of the distribution of the top 10 referring destination sites where you RealBird listings are either automatically syndicated to or shared to by other means (widgets, embed code, social bookmarking). These are also 2009 numbers across all the listings of all the RealBird members:
Just like for our fellow celebrities at the Oscar gala, our list of gratitudes is very long so for the sake of keeping this post reasonably short, let us thank all of you at once - RealBird members and you clients and the ActiveRain community as well - for using, supporting and sharing RealBird and for such a great year. It's our mutual effort and hard work that took us this far. Next year, let's double these numbers, shall we?
Both Gabe and myself @RealBird wish you and your loved ones a Very Happy and Successful New Year !
