Ask crowdSPRING: How many countries does cS reach?

We’ve long admired 37signals, a great Chicago company located only a few blocks from us. We love their products (Mike and I have used Backpack since 2006, when we first came up with the idea for crowdSPRING, and our development team uses Basecamp to manage multiple projects and for collaboration). We also love their Signal vs. Noise blog. Among our favorite subjects – Ask 37signals -where the 37signals team answers questions from users. We hope 37signals won’t mind…

Some of you have asked whether the United States accounts from most of the users on crowdSPRING. Users from the United States do account for a large amount of traffic to crowdSPRING. However, we’ve been amazed at our reach only two weeks following our public launch (May 6). The graphic below (from Google Analytics) shows access to crowdSPRING for the period May 19 to May 25, 2008. I’ll save you the counting — visitors last week came from 122 different countries/territories. Most interesting – a good number of logo design and other graphic and web design projects on crowdSPRING are being posted by buyers from outside the United States. We look forward to welcoming more friends from all over the world.

Xie Xie!
