Friday Fun Facts – Creatives gettin’ biz-ay Mike | April 24th, 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. Here is the latest in a serial discussion of some of the data we look at internally…

A few weeks ago a user asked about stats on crowdSPRING Creatives and how “active” they are on the site. It started me thinking a bit about activity levels in general on the site and what insights we could glean by better understanding our user’s behavior. So we pulled together some numbers from the available data. Cause that’s just how we roll…

Here’s what we know about the first quarter of 2009:

  • Creatives submitted an average of 8,299 entries per week to open projects
  • An average of 33 Creatives participated in each project
  • The average project received 77 entries
  • An average of 105 projects were completed each week

Here’s a couple of charts to show how participation has increased day-to-day since we launched:

From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!

    The relative transparency is surprising and admirable. Not simply bragging abput your success, your sharing of sensitive business statistics borders on stunning. I really appreciate the sort of decisions crowdSpring seems to make on a regular basis – I am constantly and pleasantly surprised. In an emerging market that has some very cutthroat principles at play, I am happy to see cS continue on a path which appears to avoid the ‘worst case’ scenarios in every professional designers mind. I continue to be glad to be a part of the cS community.

    Thank you,
