I haven’t posted in a crazy long time so I figured I should probably do a quick update. There has been a lot going on with our company which surpasses all expectations. It’s been fun!
For years I’ve been wanting to build an auto-responder. Now with RocketResponder a month old, I’m super happy we did it. I’m actually addicted to email once again. The past few years I’ve been kinda meh about email because none of the services out there fit my style.
I just wanted easy. I want it to be fun to send out an email. And from a geeky perspective sending out 17,000 emails in a minute is super cool.
While I was developing RocketResponder the guys decided to launch Nerdbux. We had no expectations and were more just doing it to try it out. I mean, how hard is running a PTC when you’ve run traffic exchanges? Well I’m not sure what happened but we’ve been blown away! PTCs launch all the time but I’ve never seen one grow as fast as Nerdbux has.
And the other day I was checking out Trck.me stats, we were hitting over 4000 hits per minute. That kind of traffic is just massive. And one of our database servers is doing over 2000 queries per second.
All this growth of both traffic wise and different avenues of marketing have helped me grow as a developer. I’ve learned some really cool techniques, I’m understanding optimizations in a whole new way, and I’m able to use some really awesome software.
So it’s been really fun. I hope you’re having fun doing what you do. What’s really cool is I know we’re not finished yet. There is so much more we are going to be doing to make our services better. We definitely have the view point that if you aren’t constantly evolving as a business you’ll be out of date real quick.
