November 2013 Reports

Prepare to Serve – Progress Report

November’s been a great month!

The biggest accomplishment we made this month was indexing and embedding hundreds of YouTube videos about countries- their history, wildlife, tourist attractions, weather, etc.  We also had a lot more website visits and youtube views in November.

Other happenings in November:

  • Our “Friends of LDS Missionaries,” (Google Plus community) grew to about 1,770 members (up from about 1,680 last month).
  • Preparetoserve.com had significant growth in daily visitors (470-1000 visitors/day)
  • Our YouTube Channel subscribers grew to 649 (up from 429 last month).
  • We gained about 47 followers on Twitter, 194 followers on Pinterest and 60 followers on Facebook.
  • We uploaded our 2,600th video to YouTube.
  • We received press coverage from BYU’s Daily Universe

Things to expect in December:

  • Finish embedding videos on country websites (I will go through and make sure there are six or more video playlists in each country’s video player.)
  • About 15 more hour-long video interviews.
  • About 600-1,000 visits/day.
  • Create more text indexes (mission maps, addresses, quotes, etc.)
