I’ve been doing some thinking about the site over the weekend and looking at the statistics and revenue across the site and I’ve come to the conclusion that whilst fortune wheels and games etc may be fun and exciting additions to the site, it’s becoming clear that we don’t have enough traffic to run them and make them beneficial to the bigger picture. I’m left asking myself have I just brought these great idea’s a little too early?
I really think the best thing at the moment would be to strip out all the new added features and focus solely on being free lottery draws, with the intent to bring back these features should the site become more popular in future. I don’t know, I’m looking at the site and I’m thinking it’s not working. It works, but we’re not going anywhere really and it takes a lot of my time and I have to weigh up the situation and say is this worthwhile. Looking properly at the situation, we have a lot of dormant accounts, we’ve not really grown and it’s becoming obvious that it’s not a service the wider Electroneum community wants to support otherwise we would be bustling with people!
I do however realize that you guys do you enjoy the site and appreciate it being here, so I feel, If I go back to what the initial service was, free draws, free etn, basic and simple that it will make continuing to run the site more palatable to me, and still give those who like the site the chance to win free Electroneum. I guess this is a step backwards, but it’s going to be a required one I’m afraid. What I need to remember is that I started this a side project and you know, I’ve got involved in it quite a bit and yeah, in a few months we’re coming up on a year and we are at the same level of usage so that should tell me something…
I mean, the other option is to pay out all balances and be done with the site. Look at it like, we had a nice time, we tried but failed. But one thing is for certain, if I don’t remove all these features, we’ll eventually sink anyway so.. there we go! That’s where we’re at right now.
Not the greatest news post, but hey ho, on we go, we’ll see how it goes, it needs to be done!
