Adormo stats: where we are now (2)

11 months since Beta launch:

  • 62 Websites
  • 2082 Accommodations
  • 21 Managers
  • 665 Owners
  • 18 Countries
  • 32 Cities
  • 160 Verifications (actually more, we are still inserting them)
It’s still slow growth compared to what we could do, but it’s growth and we are still in Beta and developing.
We definitely would love more Managers in areas where we are not strong.

They were supposed to be the cool new guys in this industry, bringing ideas and much needed oxygen, not spammers.
I really welcomed them, and still do, even if they are competitors.

Adormo stats: where we are now

8 months since Beta launch:

  • 53 websites (24 Manager Sites and 29 Owner Sites*)
  • 1500 Accommodations
  • 16 Managers
  • 400 Owners
  • 12 Countries
  • 25 Cities

What’s next?

Well, we are mostly still deep into development right now but soon we’ll start moving 1000 more properties from our old system.

At this rate by the end of the year we’ll probably have 3000/4000 properties.

Then we’ll open the doors to accommodations everywhere in the world.
It’s going to be fun, I can’t wait :)
