The Year That Was: 2011 vFlyer Recap

Here's some information about a service that I plan to check out and maybe other folks might have a use for in developing your marketing strategies.  And there are Rainmakers already using the service who can provide feedback.

vFlyer 2011

To say that 2011 was an eventful year would be an understatement. And while it’s tempting to try to sum up all the momentous changes and events in national and international politics, the economy, and technology, among other things, I’m sure there are plenty of others doing that just fine. So in this end-of-year recap I’ll stick to vFlyer, which also had an eventful, mostly fun, often hectic, and ultimately successful 2011.

The big event for us this past year was the launch of vSites, our website builder and hosting service, now all of four months old. In development for over a year, vSites is the second major service offering that vFlyer has introduced, after vMarketing, our classified ads service. In addition to being an easy-to-use yet powerful website service, vSites also means that vFlyer now offers a far more comprehensive marketing service to our users. Rather than using multiple applications for website building, hosting, Craigslist content, listing syndication, and email marketing (among other things), you can now do all of this in one place: your vFlyer account.

In addition to vSites, we introduced the social media toolbar and secondary contact to vMarketing at the beginning of the year and new Craigslist layouts and preview capabilities at the end. We added affiliate and reseller programs, giving even more rewards to people who promote and resell vFlyer services.

It was a good year for us, and we’re looking forward to an even better 2012. We plan to build out the vSites capabilities further and making it even easier for people to create a website. We plan to make flyers even more social, allowing for easier sharing, posting, and tweeting of them. And we’re looking forward to hearing from you all what improvements you want to see and working them into our product roadmap.

So thanks to all vFlyer users this year for your flyers, your websites, and all your great feedback. In particular, we’d like to thank a handful of users who provided especially helpful comments and insights to us this year:

Marcos Avila
Mike Catania
Dennis Favilla
Anthony Gilbert
Laura Pyle Gillott
Eugene Gruzin
James Hronek
Larry Johnson
Joshua Kinney
Greg Markov
Jay Nuss
Doug Parry
Joe Pedersen
Weston Pugh
Vatt Saycocie
Diane Schatz
Betty Simmons
Joann Welch

A big thanks to all of you. Best wishes for a happy new year!
