In the month of February 2010, Rose Publishing had more unique web visitors than the top two traditional print publishers in the Christian market, according to Compete.com.
“Of course, we were surprised and excited to see February’s results. We never thought this would ever happen, although we have seen major increases over the past two years,” said Gretchen Goldsmith, president and co-founder of Rose Publishing, Inc.
The figures released on the Compete.com website last week indicated that Rose Publishing’s web traffic (unique visitors) was greater than that of Thomas Nelson Publishers and Zondervan, the industry leaders in traditional Christian book publishing.
“These are companies with hundreds of employees and annual sales of $300 million to $500 million,” observed Goldsmith. “We have a staff of twenty.” Goldsmith credits their 129% increase over the past 12 months to targeted e-mail marketing as well as a variety of online strategies.
