AGORACOM Small Cap Community Sets Monthly Visitor Records – 149,400 Investors Visited 741,500 Times In October

Posted by AGORACOM at 1:24 AM on Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Good evening to you all.  Despite significant weakness in the markets during October, I am very pleased to announce that AGORACOM set a monthly record for unique visitors (149,385) and total visits (741,562).  All of our traffic stats are tracked and reported by Google Analytics.

We attribute our October success to a couple of important factors.  First, in keeping with our advice to pubco clients that marketing during turbulent times is actually quite effective, AGORACOM launched 30-second TV ads on BNN, Bloomberg and CNBC in mid-September.  Using Google Trends, we saw an immediate impact with US searches for “Agoracom” sky-rocketing by mid-October.  FYI, the anecdotal feedback has been tremendous from current and prospective clients who have seen the ads.

Secondly, comScore reported that traffic to financial websites has actually jumped as a result of market turmoil, serving as further proof that small-cap public companies need to maintain marketing during this period.

Thanks to our great members and our great clients for helping make AGORACOM a 2nd generation financial community in which smart investors and smart public companies can communicate in near real-time, without problems relating to profanity, spam, flaming, stock bashing and stock hyping.
