2021 Year in review for I-AM.AM Armenian Business Directory

2021 was a huge year for not only I-AM.AM Armenian Business Directory and our team but to all Armenian-owned businesses who joined us to build their business with I-AM.AM trying to come out from the post-COVID19 lockdown which kept our markets down for the past few years.

Before we jump into 2022, let’s look back at the most memorable moments of last year and see what we achieved together.

I-AM Recommendations Went Overseas

Our beloved, Karreno from Charqute, asked for I-AM recommendations on where to visit when in Portugal and Greece. With our recommendations, he had the pleasure to visit Restaurant Ararate in Lisbon and Kebap to Rodi in Greece. How was it Karreno?

When we shared our Christmas Guide of Gift ideas from the Armenian-owned businesses one lady from Hawaii was so interested in the Miray Collections mask, that she couldn’t wait to purchase it. Hope she liked it 🙂

Email Stats

Do you know the industry standards for the Email Open/Click rates? I am sure you are googling it now. Let me tell you that the average email open rate should be around 20-25 %. Your average click-through rate should be between 2-5%. 

Guess how many I-AM emails have’ open/click rates!!! During all email campaigns initiated by our team and with the help of the I-AM’s audience opening and showing interest by clicking the information provided in the emails we have achieved a 45.27% Open Rate, and 4.87% Click Rate. Incredible right?

What’s Next?

We can’t tell you everything that’s coming in the 2022 year, but take our word for it—there’s never been a better time to share with your other fellow Armenian business owners and have them list their businesses with I-AM.AM.

Until then, continue following us on our online platforms, visiting your I-AM accounts, and keeping your business listings up to date.
