Friday Fun Facts – Creatives gettin’ biz-ay

As a small business startup we spend a great deal of time looking at and analyzing data to help us drive strategy, make adjustments, and better understand our customers. We try hard to not be robotic in our response to numbers, but rather to let them inform our decisions and our direction.

Here’s what we know about the first quarter of 2009:

  • Creatives submitted an average of 8,299 entries per week to open projects
  • An average of 33 Creatives participated in each project
  • The average project received 77 entries
  • An average of 105 projects were completed each week
