Over 2,000 unique vistors since start of pilot
Since the start of the pilot for the website, it has been visited by over 2,000 unique users, with over 3,200 visits in total. There has been very positive feedback and any reported issues have been dealt with. So far an average of approximately 85 people are using the website every day.
30% of users on smartphones
Around 55% of access is from computers, 35% from smartphones and 10% from tablets. We have been very conscious of making the site work effectively on all three platforms. Almost 70% of users are in the UK, which is as expected, 11% are in the USA and the rest are well spread all around the world.
Now announcing to the public
We announced the pilot to members on 10 January and after their feedback we are now ready to announce the new site to the world at large. So today we are circulating a “News Release” to approximately 200 medical professionals, the pharmaceutical industry, the media, our funders, supporters and partner charities.
More to come
There is still plenty to do, including launching “The Glycogen Store” selling all our publications, etc. We particularly want to extend the information we have available on the most rare GSDs, and we have a wish list of new features. And don’t forget we are adding a GSD News item every week and sometimes more frequently.
