How did we do 2019? We took a look at our statistics to give you a glimpse into what our year was in numbers. 

1 – Who are the BizBiz Share members in 2019?

Here are our members on a map. The more orange there is the more active the area is. No surprise that the greater Montreal area is our busiest area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The average BizBiz Share user is a 35-year-old male on a desktop computer using Chrome as his browser.

There was a 7% drop in Internet Explorer usage. Sorry, but I have to say it. Internet Explorer is a browser from 2013. The last version of Windows that used IE was Windows 7. Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. Seriously, if you are reading this article on Internet Explorer, here is a new link for you; https://www.google.com/chrome/

 

2 – When should members visit the Marketplace?

Everyday! But the statistics show members are most active Fridays at 9 a.m.
There were three events in particular where members were highly engaged, the number of visits proves it.

 

Most recently on December 28, the Journal de Montréal in the Silver section – PME inc. published an interesting article.

 

Our first Marketplace newsletter featuring new resources generated a big boost in November.

 

Honourable mention goes to the Émile’s hat trick: sharing resources between companies with Paul Arcand on a beautiful morning, full of traffic jams, at the beginning of 2019.

1 single-visit !!!

We had only one visit on the evening of June 12, 2019 … That means that one of our members was not watching the Bruins lose the Stanley Cup! For the 2020 Cup final, we are expecting ZERO visitors, watch the game.

In 2019, the construction holiday in Quebec represented a 71.5% drop in traffic compared to normal. Still, in the off-peak summer days, we had exactly the same traffic on June 24 as on July 1, 3 users each. So no battle there.
