I was talking with my assistant on Monday and she had some very good news for me. The new website (www.FloridaDevelopmentNews.com) we informally launched two weeks ago had 40 unique hits last week and the average time spent on the site was over 20 minutes per visitor. I have to say, I am aiming for much larger numbers in the future but for right now I am pleased as punch thank you very much.
We plan to formally launch the website next week and many more "unique visitors" I hope will find the site and value the content. The newsletter is not doing to shabby either with over 200 subscribers added in the last month. If you would like to subscribe, email editor@FloridaDevelopmentNews.com and put subscribe in the subject line.
I am working with a new group of authors/writers for our next publishing date on October 1st. I have to say the topics and depth of knowledge of the writers is truly outstanding and I think readers will be very pleased. As always, we are also on the hunt for new ideas both for the website and newsletter. Topic ideas from our readers are also valued and sought. The new site has every article published in the newsletter and links to development specific articles in papers around Florida and the New York Times. We also have an article originally published in an Urban Land Institute magazine on the future trends of the development industry. There is a link on the front page and I encourage you to check it out.
