Friday Fun Facts – Who are we? And, where do we come from? Mike | February 27th, 2009

As a small business startup we spend a great deal of time looking at and analyzing data to help us drive strategy, make adjustments, and better understand our customers. We try hard to not be robotic in our response to numbers, but rather to let them inform our decisions and our direction and we believe that this is how all small businesses should use their own. Here is the fifth in a serial discussion of some of the data we look at internally, the numbers we analyze, and our strategic approach.

Last May, Ross wrote a post about the countries crowdSPRING reached and where our users were coming from. At that point in time we had been in business for a grand total of three weeks and had 1,227 registered users. We had visitors from 122 countries back then and on that day we had 1,599 visits. Well, we’ve grown a bit since then – here is some cool data(along with some neat charts) for your reading pleasure….

Here are some quick facts about our Visitors to the site:

  • As of today, our visitors come from 196 countries and every continent (except Antartica – still waiting on that one).
  • They spend an average of almost 13 minutes for each visit.
  • Our visitors speak 124 languages.
  • The top 10 countries in numbers of visitors:

Here are some quick facts about our Buyers:

  • crowdSPRING buyers come from 41 countries.
  • US Buyers account for about 75% of our projects to date.
  • Buyers from Belize account for 0.059% of projects to date.
  • Our busiest repeat buyer has already posted 10 projects on the site.
  • Since January 1, we have registered an average of 173 new Buyers per week.
  • As I write this, we have 4,097 Buyers registered.

And here are some quick facts about our Creatives:

  • Creatives who have won a project come from 51 countries.
  • US Creatives account for about 51% of projects awarded to date.
  • Creatives from Paraguay account for 0.063% of projects awarded to date.
  • Our most successful creative has already been awarded 47 projects.
  • Since January 1, we have registered an average of 401 new Creatives per week.
  • As I write this, we have 15,601 Creatives registered.
So? Where are you from? Leave a comment here to tell everyone where in the world you are and what brought you to the crowdSPRING community in the first place. Can’t wait to hear from you…
From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!

    Mike –

    Again wonderful job on the blog post! That is very interesting.

    I like how it is diversified which i am sure lends itself nicely to the wide range of creative ideas!
    Keep up the good work! Fascinating

    I like the fact about the creative with most awards has won 47 awards.

    I wonder if somewhere we can have a rating chart that shows creatives and projects won with a top 100 chart or something. just maybe a fun idea! 🙂 help the cometitive spirit!

    Again great work!

    I’m a newbie to graphic design. I’ve taught myself some Illustrator basics because of this website and I submitted to a project. I’m having fun! San Fran, CA
