3 days into testing the new "members only" model - Here are the traffic stats - BUSINESS MODEL

It has been now 4 days since I launched this new system.

Again, what I did is mainly restrict access to 90% of the site unless you are registered and bought the access everything package.

What is stunning is that visits to the site is very similar to what it was before.

There might be a 20-40% decrease in page views - Difficult to say exactly how much because the period is too short.

What is stunning though is the number of visits are steady even though all this material is now restricted.

In a way, this could have been predicted because as i said earlier, only 10% of visitors actually hit the restriction.

The other visitors simply access one of the sales pages like the break up one or access a free spiritual resource like the Sanskrit pages.
