Happy birthday to us! The marketplace portion of Defunkd was launched a year ago today! Man, time flies when you’re squashing bugs in a new platform. Thanks to all the beta sellers and buyers for their participation, patience and feedback. It really has been a collective effort.
We’ve come a long way in a year, a thousand new users, thousands of tees listed, hundreds of sales. We saw our traffic cut in half shortly after launch, but has since been fully restored. We’re averaging about 1000 hits daily now and steadily climbing. The secret to bouncing back was cutting our ties to eBay. You may have noticed our eBay bound links have been removed (with the exception of our forum, post ’em there freely!) We were being penalized by search engines for an unnatural outbound linking pattern. Cutting of the umbilical cord was an inevitability anyway, our traffic is hard earned and it doesn’t make sense to direct it to another marketplace. Especially when that marketplace operates in way we believe to be damaging to the vintage t-shirt market, something we all hold dear to our hearts.
But enough about them lets talk about you, and what you can save! We rallied our most active sellers and they’re participating in the sale madness! Use the universal coupon code happybirthday during checkout and you’ll be treated to anywhere from 40-20% off at the shops below (click to visit):
