It has been quite awhile since I updated the team on the Status of QCS and I feel it is high time I let you in on where we have been and where we need to go in the future.
I do want to express my utmost appreciation for everyone who has been with me throughout they year. It is largely your efforts that have been driving QCS forward. Without you, there would be no QCS. Thank you all once again. I can never say it enough and I never get tired of saying it.
The month of February was a stellar month in regards to volume. Our daily article average was 40! To top that off, February was the shortest month of the year even though it is a Leap year. Since that time, our numbers have looked like this:
March 2012 931 total articles submitted 31 per day average
April 2012 1046 total articles submitted 35 per day average
May 2012 1153 total articles submitted 37 per day average
March was the only backward and downward move QCS has ever had in over 2 years of business. The decrease was a factor of some client reorganization AND number of writers fluctuation.
The ship as been righted and as you can see… we are back to trending upward and onward. Although we did not reach my goal of 50 articles per day average in May, we did set an all time record high number of submissions with 1,153 articles. Fantastic! This number was achieved even in the midst of some writer fluctuations with arrivals and departures. It speaks well of all of you have weathered the storms and remained loyal to QCS.
June is starting really really slow because of client activity or lack thereof, but I know that will bounce back strong so I look to move towards breaking another volume of production record once we get to rolling.
The other good news on the horizon is the fact that I am quickly approaching my magic number of 20 solid and dependable writers. We are just a couple short right now. However, within the next week to 10 days, I do hope to have our Magic 20 in place. There is no reason that we should fall short of a minimum of 50 articles per day unless client problems arise.
I’m just asking everyone to continue doing your usual great job. Keep the QUALITY at a maximum and meet or exceed all deadlines.
