Gemr Sign-Ups Grow by More Than 100 Percent in October

Press Release updated: Nov 1, 2017 13:36 EDT

Online and app-based collector hub Gemr (pronounced with a soft “g” because they’re a real gem) is quickly gaining momentum as the preferred community for people to collect, connect, discover, expand, and immerse themselves in the things they love. After a re-launch in March of 2017, Gemr’s user base has exploded to over 117,000 collectors with a diverse range of interests from antiques to pop culture collectibles. Recent streamlined marketing efforts, combined with an aggressive bi-monthly site and app update schedule have led to an influx of new user sign-ups that has grown by over 100% month-to-month since August 2017.

The combination of several new platform and app updates, including the launch of user-created clubs, a recent partnership with Loot Crate to create an officially branded club for fans of the Loot Anime subscription service, and the “Gemr: Collect It!” Pinterest-esque extension have all contributed to this exponential user growth. However, it is the concentrated and laser-focused “behind the scenes” engineering work that keeps users coming back, as the platform is faster, sleeker, and more user-friendly than ever before. Gemr Chief Technology Officer Sean Langford weighs in on the new engineering efforts below:

After many long days and weekends, the engineering team is very proud to release the newly rewritten server. Our server is now leaner, faster and easier to maintain. The Gemr community will benefit from this with new features arriving at a faster rate with fewer bugs in the future.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
