Waimak App enjoys strong growth post Covid-19 lockdown

The Waimak App has continued to enjoy strong growth post Covid-19 lockdown.

The national iAppNetwork (representing 20 regions) reports that the Waimak App had more than 5000 unique users during its first six months of operation – well ahead of Christchurch’s 1413.

The Waimak App numbers included just on 4000 visitors in June for 33,652 page views, 500 downloads, 1421 unique users, and 8.5 page views per visit. In all, 46% of its monthly users checked in weekly.

The Waimak App ranks third of the 20 regions listed, for the time per session its viewers spend – at almost 3 minutes.

Coupled with its monthly reach to 10,000+ Facebook users, the App’s founder Martyn Cook says everything is coming together.

“We now have that first six months in operation behind us,” Martyn said. “And, after introducing ourselves to the district, the take-up has been incredible. We’re thrilled with the progress so far and we’re looking forward to further cementing our place within the community.”
