You may not know it, but So-Sew-Easy.com has a global audience serving almost half a million users per month. Australia is one of our largest communities with around 31,000 active users per month in the country –which is about 5.5% of our entire viewer base. In fact, Australia is our fourth largest market after only the US, UK and Canada.
Today is Australia’s national holiday, so we hope all our friends there have a chance to catch up on their sewing between the surf, barbeques, lamingtons and other traditional Aussie pastimes. This is very similar to the 4th of July or Independence Day celebrations in the USA. It’s mid-summer in Australia and it’s been a hot year so far, so the beach is sounding pretty good.
In Australia, Queensland and New South Wales are about equally represented with around 27% of users each. About 24% of our users are in Victoria, 11% in Western Australia. Seven percent in South Australia, two percent each in the ACT and Tasmania and about 0.5% in the Northern Territories.
We thought this might be a great time to re-introduce everyone to the So Sew Easy online sewing map. It would be great to see many more of our friends and anyone else interested in sewing in Australia put themselves on the map.
You can find all the details about how to add yourself to the map by reading through the original post HERE.
