site visitor statistics

Right from the day I founded “Management Scholars Academy” I was sure that I can reach my customers by focusing all my campaign online. In the last six months I did a lot of work (I can’t tell you all the trade secrets) and the results are quite satisfying. Thought of sharing with you the visitor statistics  and seek advise from techies here to take it to the next level. (The summary is June visitors count. The graph shows the trend. Three more days left in June. I am hoping the June numbers will take over the May numbers) Click on pictures for larger view.
