We’ve teamed up with TechCrunch to launch the official 2009 Web App Survey (here’s the announcement on TechCrunch). Here’s why …

The tough thing about being a startup is that no one is willing to share their numbers with you.

The survey is an (optionally) anonymous survey where we can all share a bit of data about our userbase, traffic, financials and more. The more you’re willing to share, the more you’re going to learn from everyone else.

The whole goal of this project is to shed some light on a subject that very few people are willing to talk about publicly. It will help startups understand how they compare to other companies, and then make decisions accordingly.

We’re going to collect the data from Aug 11th – Sep 4th and then we’ll collate, sort and evaluate the data. Mike Arrington will reveal the results live at FOWA London 2009.

We will also be designing a full PDF report and website to showcase the findings, which will be available one week after his presentation at FOWA. The report will be completely free to view and download.

  1. Thanks Ryan (and TechCrunch) for conducting this survey. Over the past year I have been investing a considerable amount of time and energy developing an application and social platform for the arts, craft and design communities.

    Unfortunately I am still a few months from stage one (soft) launch. So you can imagine, I am keeping a keen eye on the progress and results of this survey.

    Thank you so much and I hope to see more of these industry surveys in the future.

    I am really liking the direction Carsonified is taking lately, particularly with Mike’s design related articles!

  2. I’m totally agree with Nathan. Looks very useful.

  3. I really like this concept! If my apps were further along I would participate, but the small beta we have no wouldn’t give very much useful information.

    These results should be very useful for predicting the viability of future ideas.
