Happy New Year !

January 3, 2008

From all of us at Peopleperhour.com, we wish you all the best for the New Year. May 2008 be a year of peace, prosperity and happiness to us all.  

Looking back at 2007, we’ve come a long way in a relatively short while. Having launched in BETA only in May of 2007, since then, we’ve had over 2200 Providers register on the site and approaching 1000 Projects. Our repeat usage from Buyers has been very good with over 20% of first-time Buyers going on to post a second project. And most importantly, the feedback and rating that our Providers have been receiving has been very positive – undisputedly a driver of our repeat usage.  

To start off the year we have put up on the home page a number of Case Studies from some of our repeat Buyers and testimonials from their usage. If you’d like to be featured in one of these please send us your details – to find out more please look at our Case Studies page.

Looking ahead, we anticipate a very busy and exciting 2008. Our marketplace has matured a lot in its relatively short existence, so we expect an exponential growth in projects as word of mouth and referrals accelerate. Being a community of sorts, there is clearly a collective benefit from having a larger and more diverse user base, so please do refer the site to your friends, colleagues and family.

Lastly, we’d like to thank YOU – our users – who make the site feasible and operational day by day. We have a number of interesting initiatives and features in the pipeline planned for 2008 – a lot of which have come from YOU as feedback and comments you’ve sent us, and we will be announcing them in due course.  Your feedback is very valuable to us so please do send us any thoughts or improvements you can think of. It will only benefit the site and therefore YOUR experience as a user.

Once again, wishing you all the best for 2008 and looking forward to hearing from you in due course
