On October 24/25th we started designing BudLodge.com Features began with: Stoned or Not, a chat, demo store, articles, classifieds and a biz directory.
We launched a test market campaign, during our prototype design phase. By day 46, over 3.1 million hits with approx. 900k unique (return & organic).
That amount of traffic is unheard of with a startup, especially when it was beta. Analysis of traffic, feedback from many visitors, even attempted purchases helped us determine what users want…
“The amazon for pot.”
FULL LAUNCH & MARKETING:
We had over 3 million hits in demo mode. Upon launch w/products & new features, expect our traffic to be record breaking.
