So last week I made an app for designers to share snippets as some of you may know...
I built it for fun, not because I was trying to clone Dribbble or anything like that. I hadn't even looked at Dribbble's site much (honestly!). I just knew about it and I knew that it was exclusive to only the best designers who had credentials, and an invite. So I built Favwork in a weekend and fired off an email to Mashable to see if they would be interested in it.
Little did I realize that in about 5 hours after sending that email I was about to get the most visitations to a website I've ever had in my whole career...
On Saturday Favwork had 3500 unique visitations and about 500 users signing up, in just 24 hours. Since then Favwork has had 115,000 page impressions in total. I realized that with those impressive stats I had hit on to something!
Are designers just trying to find a way to show off their work and they'll use whatever mechanism they can? Or are they just desperately trying to get an invite to Dribbble?
So it occured to me, maybe Favwork is good for both those things. Yes show off your work and get new business from potential clients visiting the site (see below), but also you may end up getting an invite to Dribbble out of it too! You can't lose.
Here's a little testimonial someone sent me today from @inkreaser:
Just received an enquiry via my website from someone who found me on Favwork! Thanks for the 200 page views (and counting)!
Oh also, as it's Valentines day, here's some Favwork from @cnevels:
