UPDATE 19 August 2020: We now show up-to-date key numbers on the bottom of our homepage due to the high number of views this post still receives. Below is an archive of our original post in April 2017.
Since launching a little under 10 months ago we’ve received an overwhelming amount of feedback. Our community’s passion for making Vampr the best possible professional network for musicians is humbling to say the least. And we appreciate your patience with the Android version of the app. Launching publicly as a Beta product was a risk but it’s been invaluable as an exercise in gathering insight as to what’s broken and we’re working overtime to make it as reliable as possible.
When trawling the net, the comment I see most frequently about Vampr goes something along the lines of:
“This app looks sweet, but does it actually work?”
Let’s break down some of the recent numbers:
- Vampr users have swiped on each other 12 MILLION times
- This has led to 2 MILLION unique connections made on the app
- 10% of these swipes have been in an upward direction, which indicates the user would like to see a profile again later — a UX concept we pioneered
- Users are spending 8 minutes on average in total on the app each day
- Since launching Version 2 for iOS and Beta for Android, 57% of users have made a connection;
- In 180 countries
This is more than we could have hoped for in the first year and if we continue along this trend we are well on the way to achieving our goal of levelling the playing field for all musicians, of all calibres, in all locations, creating the kinds of opportunities that only arise with access.
The other question I get asked daily is “what’s next for Vampr?”
Well without giving away the whole enchilada, by year’s end we hope to introduce localized versions of Vampr in Spanish, Japanese, Portugese, Chinese, Russian and French. We have a couple of fun features to help break the ice when you first connect with somebody, but most importantly (and we know a lot of you have been shouting from the hills for this one!) we will be introducing email login.
Please keep flying the Vampr flag — we are so proud of our community, and we want you to be proud of the app you took a chance on.
