Few interesting information about my photography page. Well I had nothing to do today morning, so I peeped into the insights of my photography page, wishing to see what the responses are like, and how I reached to 386 Facebook Likes. 🙂
Few of the fascinating points are:On 1 June 2011, I did a vigorous link sharing, here.. there everywhere .. who ever pinged me, I pasted the link to my photography page, asking them to share with their friends. ..and I was very happy thinking, that newer people are visiting my page. Shockingly, from 30th May 2011 till today morning, only 47 newer people “like”d the page.
The notable rise being in 236 likes when I posted the light painting. When the page was new, many of my friends joined it. So an increase in the initial stage was something that couldnot have been avoided. [who would avoid it anyway?]
But I feel, the light painting, Jama Masjid minar photograph and the photograph with 6 Anirban’s in it contributed to the momentum, giving me more than 250 likes during the time.
I expected the audience to be mostly constituted of my friends. Surprisingly roughly 60% of the total people who subscribed to my photography page are in my friendlist. [Many of them sent me a friend request after subscribing to my page]
I expected to see much of the traffic coming from Kolkata, Durgapur. Theres a surprise also.. An overwhelming percentage (58.8%) of the traffic comes from Mumbai and Bangalore combined, and Durgapur is not in the list 😉
Expected my neighboring countries to provide me more traffic after India. Strikingly, visitors from USA is more than visitors from Pakistan, Bangladesh, UAE, and all other countries (expect India).
Well expected Facebook, Twitter and “We have a story” to be giving more “like”s. But it is my website anirbansaha.com 🙂
The highest feedback/impression was of the photograph with 6 Anirban’s in it. It was not a surprise… I was quite expecting it 😀
The way my photography page got 386 subscription.
I am very clear about few things now… My maximum audience is NOT from my college, nor are my juniors 😀 but an overwhelming 74% of the visitors are of the age group – 18-24. Hopefully novice and aspiring photographers. And promotion (was/shall) is never an alternative to good work, when it comes to visitors. I should put up more photographs to my website, and reactivate my flickr account. This page is 2 months, 12 days old now… looking forward to a long time and changing statistics 😀 Looking forward to more surprises… I wish someone would write for me, and someone else to promote it.. while I concentrate on photography only.
This is an opportunity to sincerely thank few friends – Pratik Shivagunde, Apoorv Maurya, Robin Sinha, Sourav Das for being such a support.. Debika Datta, Atmaja Santra for writing two important posts for me.. Anirban Brahma, Swastik Pal for the hard kicks at times 😀 Sarasij da for such explosion of new concepts and patience. Arko Sen dada for being whatever you are 😀 hope you enjoyed reading this piece .. 😀
NB: If you like writing, and want to write to support one of my photographs, please do come up. If it is good, I shall put it up on my blog with your name, link to your blog/facebook profile.
