Well I am a winner of this event, at least I can measure it in numbers. As I am always a Premium member, these rare events do not really a thing for me, but now it was something new. Free Premium Membership Day gave me a visitor boost and I tell you how:
Yesterday afternoon I noticed I got more favs and comments on my Custom Box Background generator app, than usual. Every time I visited my messages I had new favs, comments even watches (and same people watched me who faved the app... by the way: hello new watchers. I am happy about you guys
It seems lot of people used their Free Premium Membership Day for customize their profile, and from mentions and searches they landed on my app. It shows in Google Analytics too:
See that huge spike at the right end? That is 7th April. Free Premium Membership Day means people want to learn, how to customize their profile and they find my solution.
I know it isn't a big number on internet, but still big enough to make a huge spike on statistic. Last time I seen a spike like this when I got the DD for the app.
It is interesting to see stuff like this. Another interesting data that I got visitors who found it on youtube (I have a tutorial video about it usage
) yesterday but most traffic was from deviantART. This is interesting because it should be the way around. I link the video from the app. The video has link to the app too, but I didn't think people search on youtube for solutions for deviantART custom boxes.
Let me tell you this: Google Analytics for deivantART is my favourite new thing on deviantART since sta.sh. I do not really care about the number of visitors I get and I am not sad when nobody see something I make. But I love visualized statistics and it is always fun to see people's behavior like this.
