20,600 New Users in 2019 - The 2019 Wrap-up

We're only 1 week into 2020 so I suppose a 2019 wrap-up post is still acceptable? :)

2019 was our first complete year of operation (we launched May of 2018). PeerFly shut down at the end of July in 2019 at which point I started working on affLIFT full-time.

2019 was an AMAZING year for our community.



Here are a few fun stats that I'll discuss a bit more in detail below:

✅ 20,600 registered users
✅ 2,260 threads
✅ 35,000 posts
✅ 2,000,000 pageviews
✅ $10,000 in prizes
✅ 49 Articles
✅ 47 Link Directory listings
✅ 2,000,000 conversations (messages)

I am being more transparent than most people would be, but one of our core values here on affLIFT is being open so let's discuss these results :D

For reference, here is thread with our goals for 2019:

🚀 20,600 registered users
I am THRILLED that we saw such huge user growth in 2019. We wanted to hit 25,000 users by the end of 2019. We topped that on November 13th. This year, I would love to see us add another 25,000 users. That's ~68 users a day so we better make it 69 just to be safe :)

🚀 2,260 threads and 35,000 posts
I did not start 2019 with a goal for the number of threads or posts created during the year. This is something I am not really concerned about. Quality > Quantity. I would rather we have 2,500 amazing threads created this year than 5,000 crappy threads with no value.

🚀 2,000,000 pageviews
Pageviews are not really a metric I pay attention to for the most part. That is probably surprising to many since most webmasters focus heavily on pageviews, but to me, it's really just a vanity metric. You should measure what matters and for affLIFT, pageviews do not really matter. Knowing there were 2,000,000 of them though is nice :D

🚀 $10,000 in prizes
I wasn't able to get an exact total for prizes yet, but it was around or a little over $10,000. This year, I want to top $15,000 in prizes from contests in the forum. We're off to a great start with our $2020 contest!

🚀 49 Articles and 47 Link Directory listings
This accomplishment is something I am proud of. One of my weekly goals for 2019 was to create more organic content and post 1 new Article per week. I hadn't even gotten the Articles section setup when I created this goal 😆 I ended up pushing for 2 new "Articles" per week because I added Link Directory listings to my "Articles" goal. I was only a few articles short of 2/week and topped the 1/week goal by far. I will be working towards 2/week (Articles + Link Directory) in 2020.

🚀 2,000,000 conversations (messages)
I think conversations here on affLIFT are one of the best channels I can use to grow our community. Conversations are the private messages you receive from me and other members. My goal for 2019 was to send out 2-3 a week and I am sure I accomplished that. Of the 2M total sent for 2019, a vast majority of them are from me. I like being able to directly message you all because it opens a great line of communication between us and it also allows me to make you aware of content that you may otherwise be missing 👍

Besides those amazing accomplishments, we also saw many new awesome Partners join our community in 2019. As we continue to grow, I am excited to be able to leverage those relationships to create awesome opportunities for our community. The $2020 contest we are doing right now is just one example. I expect many more will come :)

So, thank you for being a part of our community. We're helping people discover new affiliate marketing opportunities every single day and I could not be happier to be a part of that.

Onward and upward 🚀

Congrats Luke. It’s really amazes me in how much this community has grown in such a small time.

I bombed on all my 2019 goals. I had a really rough year. Many personal issues which caused problems. But now past that and looking to rebound!
