May 2016 Reports

May’s been a fantastic month!

The greatest blessing this month has probably been figuring out how to control the frequent headaches I’ve been getting for the past several years- and it helps me to get so much more work done! This month we’ve interviewed several well-known RMs, made some changes to our website to allow better caching, backing up/transferring, etc. We also increased the visibility of the sponsor links at the top of each page, to increase exposure and click through rate.

We found a new apartment and are almost finished moving over, which is exciting! We also started paying people to schedule interviews with RMs, to help us pump out more video interviews. Bit by bit I’m learning to do more delegation/outsourcing to help Prepare to Serve grow to its fullest potential.

Life is crazy busy, so I’ll keep the updates short this month!
