January 2015 Traffic Report

Welcome to the very first traffic report for Les Feldick Bible Study

I will be publishing a post just like this one every month, sharing how the website is growing and how many people we are reaching with God’s Word. I will also be explaining what we are doing to try to increase the amount of people that we are reaching.

Please feel free to contact us anytime you have a suggestion or question!

Les Feldick Bible Study Mission Statement

The mission statement for Les Feldick Bible Study is to share God’s Word and allow people to become more like Christ through the study of His Word each and every day!

How did we start

I first had the idea of doing this website back in August 2014. I had been watching Les Feldick on the TV for a while and loved his teaching! For some reason we could no longer watch Les on TV. I turned to Youtube, I found a lot of videos but they were just splattered all over in no particular order or naming convention.

When watching them on TV they were in no specific order either. I had been wanting to watch and study them in order so that is when it hit me. Why dont I make a website that list these videos and make it easy for people to watch them in order.

Content

We posted 31 videos in the first month. These videos add up to almost 15 hours of Bible Study! On each page I have also included the transcript of the video. Most of these transcripts are almost 4,000 words. I started the month putting links to audio only but I have decided to do something a little different with the audio. I plan on building a page on the site that list the links for audio only.

The most popular videos of January were

  1. Lesson 1 Part 1 Book 1  – 300 Unique Page views
  2. Lesson 1 Part 4 Book 1 – 135 Unique Page views
  3. Lesson 1 Part 2 Book 1 – 131 Unique Page views
  4. Lesson 1 Part 3 Book 1 – 88 Unique Page views
  5. Lesson 2 Part 2 Book 1 – 87 Unique Page views

This is pretty understandable since the 4 most popular videos were first 4 videos posted. I am looking forward seeing if these videos are still the most popular in February.

Traffic

I am blown away by the traffic this website has received in its first month! With over 1000 unique visitors and over 5X that in page views I couldn’t be more pleased! Below is a graphic of the months analytics.

35.11% of our traffic came from our social streams with 98.10% being Facebook. I am not real sure many people know about our Twitter or Google Plus pages. I am going to try and do a better job of promoting those pages.

Youtube

This is really what it is all about! If people are visiting the site but not watching the videos then this site isn’t really doing what we want with it. The good thing is it looks like people are watching the videos! Like I said earlier there were 31 videos posted in the month of January. The minutes watched for this month added together equals over 18 days of viewing. That is awesome!

Whats Next?

Whats next for Les Feldick Bible Study? Of course we are going to continue to post Bible Study Videos. We are going to continue to promote each post on social media.

We will be using some new services to increase social engagement. One will be something called Highlighter. You will be able to highlight any text on the page and share it on Facebook or Twitter easily.

We started a forum and it has not gotten much traction. I know there is the chicken and the egg problem. It is hard to get engagement without people using it and its hard to get people using it with out engagement. I plan to continue to try and drive people to the forums for discussion.

We need YOUR help!

It’s true, we can not do this without you! Please help us spread God’s word by sharing these posts with anyone who might need to hear it!

If you see a post in a Facebook Group or Google Plus Community like and share that post but remember usually only people that are also in that group or community can see it. If you want to share that post with all of your friends you must go to the Les Feldick Bible Study Facebook Page  and like and share the post that is on that page so that all of your friends can see it.

We also have new share buttons. I am asking a favor from everyone who visits this site. If you watch a video and like what you just watched with you please use the new share buttons and share it on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or Linkedin. The more these videos are shared the more people get to see and study God’s Word which is the ultimate goal.

We are also wanting your feedback! If you have any questions or suggestions please contact us and let us know! We want to

Signing Off
