7 Unusual Facts About InkyDeals Users

(this article is illustrated with a photo of a cute cat because that’s how all funny articles online are)

A couple of weeks ago I was wondering if we have any strange or  not so ordinary data about our users. So I had a look inside the data of our Analytics account and see if I can come up with some interesting facts and create a small funny article about our audience, this is what I’ve discovered.

Unusual Fact #1

We have a lot of Cooking Enthusiasts on the website.

Given the sheer number of Facebook posts and Youtube videos related to food, everyone likes cooking, or maybe just eating? I don’t know, I’m thinking cooking recipes should be up on our website soon.

Unusual Fact #2

44% of people visiting our website are women, but men spend more on our website. 67% of transactions are attributed to men.

We never thought of out products as more appealing to one sex more than the other. Frankly, we’ve always believed the everything on our platform falls into the “unisex” category. I guess these numbers proved us wrong, though.

Unusual Fact #3

People over 65 have the best conversion rate, over 4%.

Well, now we know who we should market to. These people like us the most, we should reward them somehow.

Unusual Fact #4

Two people from Vatican visited us.

Vatican City has a population of just 451 and a couple of them know about us, I think this is AWESOME.

Unusual Fact #5

A few people from Monaco have bought from us.

Well, this is a surprise, our deals are too good to be missed. We’re glad we can help save a few bucks in places as luxurious as Monaco.

Unusual Fact #6

India is the third country in terms of visits received, but we only get 0.6% of our income from there.

I’m glad to see that our freebies are held in such high regard. I do hope they enjoy our freebies and use them wisely.

Unusual Fact #7

On mobile, Blackberry users don’t buy from us.

What is Blackberry? Is this still a thing?

Why Our New Bundle May Be in Danger and How You Can Help

Let us introduce you to Doink. He’s our lead designer, and he’s in charge of coordinating and delivering this new bundle we’ve been telling you about lately.

But guess what? Tens of cups of coffee and cold pizza slices later…he’s had enough. Because working on these massive collections sure isn’t easy. And if a picture is worth a thousand words – well, he doesn’t look very happy nowadays (just check out the second photo!).

So, if you guys want to get the bundle on time, help us encourage Doink and give him a creative boost. Send all your positive vibes and warm wishes for him in the comment section below.

A happy Doink is a productive Doink, and that means only one thing: you’ll be able to get this fresh and brand new bundle sooner than you think 🙂

Update June 26th 2015: 

Hi guys, Doink here.

I just got here to say thank you so much for your kind words and support, you have really shown me how much  my work matters and how much it influences yours. I’m really glad you find it useful. It has been an insane amount of work and coordination in the last few months, and now, thanks to you, I can say relieved that it was all worth it.  I will not stop here, I will continuously improve every new product, one after another.

There is something I have to say about the new bundle, something that only a fellow designer can: it has been built with purpose, to feel its usefulness the minute you’ve finished downloading it.

 These are my own tools, the ones I personally use for my own projects. They’re not meant to do the work for you, but to work WITH you. It’s like having a personal bag of tricks, filled with gizmos that do a thing in just a fraction of the time it would take to do it yourself. Every package is compact, and carries a large amount of tools within arm’s reach.

Let’s look at a situation we’ve both found ourselves in, many times: looking for decorations to brush up the final designs, and we always go to the same folders, filled with beautifully drawn clip art. Now the question is, which one do we use first? Well, no more!

Each of the ten categories have the option to open them all in a single file. Be honest, there were times when you too asked yourself “What was the name of that file with those pretty flowers in it?”, then spend another twenty minutes looking for it. But now, you just open a single file and pick up whatever you need. Simple as that.

There is much more to say, but I’m going to stop here. I’ll let you discover on your own the true power of this bundle.

Again, I’d like to thank you for your kind words, you’ve shown a designer neck-deep in work that it is truly worth the effort. Thank you!

Have an excellent day,

Doink
