Welcome to the first post to the Sadly Unfriended Blog. I am really excited to announce a number of new features to Sadly Unfriended that I have implemented.
When I started Sadly Unfriended on the 27th August 2013, I never have thought the site would grow and be as popular as it is now. The main reason for building Sadly Unfriended is that I wanted to know who unfriended me on Facebook, so I thought, while I'm at it, I'll make it so others could too.
In the first 24 hours, 768 people reached the site with 409 people signing up. Now, we have reached the 5000 user mark, with up to 70 people joining up in one single day.
To help pay for the time it took to develop Sadly Unfriended, and the cost of the server it is running on, I introduced paid plans, which a number of people have signed up too. So for those who are on the Fearful or Stalker plans, I would like to personally thank you for supporting Sadly Unfriended.
The first item that I would like to announce that is new at Sadly Unfriended, is the Sadly Unfriended Blog. I plan to write useful tips and guides and provide resources to you about social media and much more, as well as keep you updated about what's happening on Sadly Unfriended, and how it's progressing.
The next new thing to Sadly Unfriended is the Sadly Unfriended Rewards page. As a free and paying member to Sadly Unfriended, you'll have access to a number of rewards, discounts, coupon codes, license codes, and access to win free stuff. The value of the reward is determined by what plan you are on, and in most cases, the reward will worth more than the plan you are on, so it will mostly be a win-win.
First up, we have free software license codes to giveaway valued up to $19.99 for those who are on the Stalker plan. So not only do you upgrade to Sadly Unfriended, you get free stuff too. Be quick, because it's in a first come first serve basis.
We've also got Free Paintball Passes for those who live in Australia or the UK, and in-game credits to mobile apps.
And most excitingly, we're giving you a chance to win a free case for your smartphone or tablet, thanks to The Snugg. All you have to do is complete a short 5 minute survey telling us how you use your mobile phone. For those who complete the survey will receive a 5% discount code on their purchases.
I hate how some online programs force you to "invite a friend" - we're not like that, but if you do tell your friends about us, we would like to reward you. Coming soon will be a referrals program, which you can get your Sadly Unfriended account upgraded for free if you invite your friends. This essentially means, you don't have to spend a dime at Sadly Unfriended, and you can claim all the rewards paying members receive.
We recently pushed out a survey to our members, lots of people had wonderful things to say about us. Here's a few comments that people have left about us:
I intend to publish the full results of the survey in the near future, as well as post statistics on how much the site has grown this past year. There's still a lot to do to make this site better, so if you have any idea's, just send us an email.
All the best, and I hope you enjoy the new blog and rewards section.
