John Birch Society: 2009 Was a ‘Record Setting Year’
Or, “Why I parted ways with the right, exhibit J for ‘John Birch Society.’”
There’s good news and there’s bad news as we review our online progress during 2009. But the good news borders on “great,” so why not start there?
The great news is that it’s been a record setting year for The John Birch Society online. Traffic to this website and to our partner site, thenewamerican.com, is up substantially. On jbs.org we’ve seen a 60 percent increase in traffic over the last 12 months. At thenewamerican.com, traffic is up by a stunning 105 percent! In fact, so much has happened to make these numbers possible that it is hard to believe that it all took place in just twelve months.
The progress stems from what started out as a concerted effort to reach a new market among the younger generation that relies on online sources for news and analysis.
