Thank You For Your Support!

Dear dream.in.code members,

Several months ago, we placed advertisements on dream.in.code for the first time in the 4 years we have been in operation. Today, we are officially profitable. We were able to increase the money we are spending on external advertising because of your support. Over 50% of the revenue generated from advertising on the site is being re-invested to boost traffic and membership.

I wanted to personally thank each of you for putting up with the, dare I say, onslaught of ads. While we have worked to minimize the impact for logged in members, we understand the ads do take away from the overall experience here at dream.in.code.

We have experienced high click-thru-rates for all of our ad spots, and while we have few sponsors today, they appreciate the time you take to view their site or product. We are looking to expand the number of advertisers and campaigns so you don't have to stare at the same old ad day after day. (For those interested, you can view our Media Kit here: http://home.dreaminc...et/?p=mediakit)

At the beginning of the year, I set several goals. Apparently, I did not realize how dedicated our members are. We have exceeded every goal in the first 3 months of this year. This month, we had over 600,000 page views from over 100,000 unique individuals. Over 35,000 people arrived at the site from google, this is a testament to the quality of help you provide to new and existing members. Currently, google is reporting 25,100 indexed pages and spidered 1,800 pages just last night. The quality of posts and content including the 125 code snippets and 45 tutorials is really driving traffic to the site.

Without your support, we would not be where we are today. We are on track to more than triple the goals I set for the ENTIRE YEAR! Thank you so much!

Best Regards,
Chris Kenworthy
Owner, MediaGroupOne
