Sioux Falls Free Thinkers
January 2014 Newsletter #003
For the month of January here are the facts.

Fourteen static billboards went all over Sioux Falls for 4-6 weeks since the first four went up on January 6th. Two electronic billboards went up for 1 week on January 6th. The number up will begin dropping off now, but some of the static billboards will be running through the end of February.
On Jan 6th a 1/4 page ad in the Argus Leader and a rotating online ad on the Argus Leader website began running for 49 days. These are continuing and will be running through February 23rd.
On January 26th I gave an interview on Inside Keloland.
In January 27th we began running ads on Fox KTTW (Fox 7) for Sioux Falls Feminists. There will be 120 ads and they will run through February 23rd. The ads are also on all our websites.

So far we've had (since the last newsletter):
1170 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Free Thinkers website, a 51% increase.
223 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Atheists website, a 39% increase.
186 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Feminists website, a 111% increase.
120 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Scientists website, a 79% increase.
102 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Zoologists website, a 92% increase.
Almost all of the visitors to the unadvertised websites above come from links on the Sioux Falls Free Thinkers website.

All our websites are top ranked in the search engines. Our websites are ranked #1 in Yahoo, Bing, and Google, except in Google where Sioux Falls Free Thinkers and Sioux Falls Atheists are still ranked #2. Not bad for websites that are only 1 month old.
The websites are being updated almost daily with new news articles, and movie, course, and book descriptions. Currently there are 219 website pages with over 460 news articles, over 135 movie and course descriptions, and over 90 book descriptions, not to mention lots of other information related to the subject of the website.

And we've got 20 members, 10 non-member meeting attendees, and 2 mailing list adds. This is a return of 2.7% on unique visitors. In the business of website advertising 2- 2.5% return is considered good, anything above 3% is considered exceptional.

In January we had three meetups and one is planned for every week in the future. As we grow those meetups will be focused on the subjects of specific websites. On February 21st we will have a meetup for Sioux Falls Feminists which will include speakers from organizations, and therapists and counselors, that focus on helping abused women and children.
