It's been 3 months since I've started Bloco. And they went way too fast. But I think now is a good time to look back and track the progress so far.
- Paid projects: 1
I started my first paid project after a month in business. I must say it took a weight off my shoulders. The app is still under progress, but on the final stage (small tweaks, translations, store listing...). I'll write about it as soon as it's released.
- Internal Projects: 2
I already mentioned Caderno here. I'm also working on a fun proof-of-concept app with a small team. Those around me where already coerced to giving us feedback about it. But I'll keep it private until we're sure we can make it happen.
- Leads: 9
What consists a business lead is subjective. For now, at least interest was shown and there's a possible project.
- Blog posts: 19
One of my goals was to blog regularly, and so far I'm keeping the average above one per week. I started with technical subjects, but now I'm adding mobile business and marketing topics as well.
- Website visits: 867
Not a bad start, but still a long way to go. Organic traffic is increasing, which is always good. Here's the chart:
- Tweets: 108
I share interesting Android or mobile finds in Bloco's twitter account. Tweets is a loose metric, but it helps me keep on top of the latest news.
- Team members: 1
Goals for the next trimester
- More paid projects, of course, specially if they allow me to hire more team members
- Finish the internal proof-of-concept app
- Work on Bloco's brand and update the design and copy on this website
- Keep blogging and tweeting at the same pace
Wish me luck :)
