“Annual Review 2019” by Jack Topping.
[3 January 2020]
In the last 365 days, JET Numismatics saw incredible growth across all platforms. In terms of new readers, view counts, social media followers, and more, JET Numismatics received an outpouring of support from all of you, the loyal fans and readers of the blog.
Sitewide, the blog saw just under a 7% increase in visitors as compared to the previous year. Likewise, the views per visitor increased about 11%, meaning not only are more visitors coming to the site, but they are consuming more content at a higher percentage than last year’s figure.
As for these visitors, I am proud to announce that the blog welcomed readers from nine new countries, bringing the international reader count to 44 countries worldwide!
In terms of social media statistics, Twitter and Instagram host the only two official JET Numismatics social media accounts. While there is not enough data from Instagram to compile exact statistics, the Instagram page featured more posts and gained a larger follower base as compared to last year.
On Twitter, the blog earned 56,435 total “impressions” throughout 2019, gaining 174 followers this past year alone. For new followers, this shows a 28.9% increase from 2018’s end-of-year Twitter follower count.
Additionally, JET Numismatics was rated one of the Top 75 Blogs and Websites For Coin Collectors and Numismatists by Feedspot.com, a tremendous achievement that I was eager to share the moment I heard the news. Please check out the list here.
For offsite content, my review of Q. David Bowers’ Guide to Civil War Tokens, 3rd Edition was featured on the Numismatic Bibliomania Society’s E-Sylum online newsletter in September.
Finally, the first JET Numismatics themed apparel was designed this summer. While these t-shirts are not for sale, I look forward to posting pictures of them (and any other future designs) on Instagram and including them in future giveaways.
My unending thanks goes to all the loyal readers of this project, without you there would be no JET Numismatics!
I look forward to what 2020 brings for this blog, numismatics, and the community this fantastic hobby has created.
Editor, JET Numismatics
