Long ago, I chose the option to use Notify Me when I check the box under a new announcement or other page. Today, I share the power of Notify Me.

As an admin, we have the ability to increase our site daily log-ins with new or updated content. I was doing a good job of this until life happenings became more important. When I looked at stats, they were no longer in the 40-80 individual visits a day but under 20 or under 10!

Until today, the last 20 days had only 2 days over 20 individual visits. Late last night, I added a new announcement to the home page and checked the Notify Me box. The announcement was three or four down from the top on the home page and I called it a night. Fast forward to 4:00 pm EST...the number of individual visits is 66. I note, this is an alumni site with 801 members... yet this shows we have the ability to change our stats. It takes a desire to do so and a bit of time.
Here is a screen shot of the stats for the site:

ADMINS: The number of log-ins is all I need. This is the icing on top.
