“Just a quick word to say ‘wow’! Being Cool Site of the Day on 27th July was incredible...we had our busiest day by far (well over 1000 brand new unique visitors thanks to CSotD) with many subscribing to our forthcoming newsletter and even more sending email recommendations and 'Fnaffle cards'. It'll be interesting to watch the stats over the next week or so to see how the usage holds up but its looking great right now.”

“THANKS FOR ALL THAT TRAFFIC!!! I was hoping for a decent response but not expecting the landslide we received! Being "Cool Site of the Day" allowed us to gauge/test market our interest to totally neutral people. Amazingly we were able to get hundreds of people to sign up on our mailing list in just one day and we were voted one of your top 5 sites for the month! So thank you, thank you, thank you! I can't say enough good things about my "Cool Site of the Day" experience.”

Thanks again for all of your help!"

"We firmly believe that we will continue to reap the benefits of being Cool Site of the Day for a very long time. The wide exposure that we have received from it, however, has enabled us to share our photographic vision with many people we would otherwise not have reached... Your suggestions for improvement of our site were excellent, and spurred us to make what we think are significant changes...We hope that, in this day of expensive, commercially produced, flashy sites, you will always be on the look out for other small, private sites like ours that nevertheless have something valuable to offer."
-- John G., Zenandphotography.com
