A Promising Start

Thanks to everybody who has downloaded and tried VelOCRaptor, and in particular to those who have paid for a license.

In a spirit of openness I thought that I'd share my first day (25th June)'s results with the world. For the record, it's not clear to me which timezone Google analytics uses, so these figures are for approximately 24 hours, but not necessarily in any particular timezone.

On the first day I publicised the release only through this blog, the release notes on the apps autoupdate, and MacInTouch. MacInTouch was published Thursday morning EDT, and my first licence was shipped at 13:56 GMT+1

In the 24 hours that followed, VelOCRaptor.com had 510 visits from 459 visitors, 418 of them new to the site. 68% of the total was referred by MacInTouch.

MacInTouch was the only site to publish the donation page allowing people to licence by donation, rather than paying full-price. This page was visited by 193 people.

The application itself was downloaded 49 times. [Update 2009-07-29 - the server logs say 241 downloads]

In the 24 hours since the first licence was sent, I have received 45 donations and 2 full-price registrations. The smallest donation was $1, the largest $29. The average of donations and registrations was $9.95.

No doubt things will go quiet now, but again, a big thank you to everyone who's been a part of these numbers.
