Good job.

My French is quite poor (I studied it at school till when I was 16) but I understood largest part of that interview, I didn't believe it :lol:

Could someone give us who don't speak any French a small summary of the interview. I looked the videos, but didn't understand a word.

Well to summarize the article : it deals with a internet website, called ww.eurobilltracker.com. It's a kind of community where people spend their time registering serial numbers of banknotes, in the hope that someone else would find back the same banknote in the future. So you can follow the trip of the bill in time.

Maybe you should give a try ; it can be fun.

:roll:


Otherwise, you can see 7.92*57 in his pharmacy explaining about the first letter of the serial number and explaining that "L" is a very good letter as it comes from Finland and he hopes to get more hits with such bills.

Then you can see Petra who is a Serbian woman that goes around the Xth district in order to collect 5€ bills for 7.92*57.

Then 7.92*57 explains a hit he got with me (this one) : the comments fields say that this bill was collected by Petra and that it was a bill from the grandmother of my children...

There are some audio-files where you can hear me explaining how I get my bills ; filling my fuel tanks for 15€, while paying with a 50€. Obviously I mentionned that my wife was also registering my bills as she prefers to have me register banknotes, either then watching soccer ! :wink:

It's like this always. Whatever the media, it's always some few hundred new users that register themselves to the site. So don't be discouraged by this, it's just something that happends. I remember our best media coverage been some television clip(?) in Belgium that brought us some 1000 users. Normal is 100-300 from one media coverage, so considering that you did very good!

And if this brought us even one quite or very active user more in France, we can all be very happy! :wink:

As you could understand it, we had two coverages this weekend : the information website and the radio.

It's the website that delivered +/- 200 new users... The radio didn't bring a lot...

But it can be explained by the difficult transfer from Radio/TV :arrow: Internet. The advantage of the Internet website is that people just need to click... The article was read 3800 times and brought 200 new registered users... That's a good conversion rate...

I just got the information by google.fr that they might take over an information regarding EBT (and the recent article on rue89.com) on their information section in the coming weeks.

I can't imagine what will be the flow of new French users if we get this publication.

But I just keep dreaming... :lol:
