Last night my company, Toygaroo, was on Shark Tank (America’s version of Dragon’s Den). Our segment was around 8 minutes long.
Let me say that we hadn’t really done any advertising before and our pageviews, pre-sharktank, were pretty close to 0, once you factor out employees and testing.
Yesterday we had 70,000 page views. All of those were within an hour of each showing (east coast and west coast). I’m putting in a screenshot of our analytics because it is so dramatic.
Thankfully our servers survived fine, and our Ruby on Rails app suffered no issues!
For all of you on upcoming episodes… you’ve been warned!
