  • But it’s all about ROI, isn’t it. So let’s first look at the stats, and then the user feedback.We launched mid February this year, and although our unique aren’t high by any standards ... The growth is impressive.
  • Once again, doesn’t come close to the sport and news sites … but in terms of a branded recipe site, the growth in 6.5 months makes us proud.
  • We use our users to provide insights into what they want.For example:We discovered that despite our weariness of jamie olivier, the TASTE people want moreWe tested two print covers in august to see which one would work – Guess which one won? Pizza 810 / snoek 316We ran an online-only soup competition, that was supported across in the mag, on the WW site and social media – which generated fantastic involvement, and closes the loop by taking the winning recipe in-store for purchase. (it was not the Indian Viagra soup!)

    39. 39. What an incredible creation. I cannot express to you how fabulous I think your site is. At first glance, I had thought it may turn out to be just another website that looks great but is revolting in terms of actual functionality. <br />But this site seems to keep all of the promises it makes to the eye. I LOVE the online recipe book and its interactivity. The entire site is just a well-oiled machine. What clever people you are! Keep up the good work- please!<br />
