Statistics review

  • Civic Liker conversion rate resumed

— The first step (click register) conversion rate of Civic Liker registration have been dropping significantly since 24 Feb, but has resumed to normal last week after fixing the advertising strategy

—Lesson learnt: Ad as the funnel entrance should be considered

LikeCoin Weekly Progress Update 2020.03.16

Index that had a horizontal growth

— Daily active likers : ~1000

— Daily registration: ~300 Liker ID

— Weekly new Civic Liker: 45

— LikeCoin button conversion rate: ~10%

Liker Land App

  • Last 7 days new downloads. iOS: 30 units, Android: 40 units

New Liker ID registration

  • Daily registration: 270 new IDs on average

Social Media Index

  • Twitter (diagram below): not bad. Performance per post is up, will keep the direction and move on in next 2 weeks.
  • Facebook: overall better than 28 days ago, but worse than 14 days ago
  • The bookstore promotion post is the best post we have published for driving up engagement, but it also suppressed the conversion rate of Civic Liker landing page. Need to visit the funnel flow for the ADs in future.
