PeopleSoft Weekly Stats January 11, 2013

Posted by Duncan in PeopleTools.

After showing some stats for this blog yesterday, I thought I’d show some for the PeopleSoft Weekly newsletter too. As most of you will know, the PeopleSoft Weekly is a newsletter that we started back in August to give people an alternative mechanism for receiving news and opinions to RSS Feed Readers, with the added bonus that it’s curated so you should miss most of the spam and re-blogged content.

So, 5 months in, this is where we are:


The blue bars are the subscriber numbers, which are mounting up nicely. We’ve just passed 350 and are adding 15-20 readers a week. As this is an opt-in newsletter it’s unlikely to ever rocket up, so we’re very happy with how it’s going.

The red columns are the ‘unique opens’, or how many people actually read the newsletter. This is also increasing, however a little slower than sign-ups. Ideally I’d like this to be increasing at the same rate, however we still have over 50% of those that receive the email who open it which is much better than the industry average of 17%.

The most clicked on articles across all issues are these:

  1. PeopleSoft Video Feature Overviews for 9.1 Feature Packs and 9.2
  2. The Oracle OpenWorld content catalog
  3. Oracle Sues Yet Another Partner Over Support Services
  4. User Experience Highlights in PeopleSoft: Direct from Jeff Robbins
  5. Paco Aubrejuan’s letter to Customers attending OpenWorld
  6. Jeff Kemp’s Top 10 Confusing Things in Oracle
  7. How to check if a user has access to a Content Reference
  8. Jim Marion’s Query for Component and/or CREF Navigation Take II
  9. PeopleSoft Business Process Maps
  10. I’m Duncan Davies and this is how I work
  11. Create appealing Dashboards with PeopleTools 8.52
  12. Oracle OpenWorld Day 0 (Larry’s Keynote)
  13. Workday files IPO as Oracle Fusion Builds Momentum
  14. I’m David Kurtz and this is how I work
  15. Chris Malek’s Some Options for Sending Emails in PeopleTools
  16. Derek Tomei’s The PIA Explained
  17. PeopleSoft CRM 9.2 Release Value Proposition
  18. PeopleSoft HCM 9.2 Prerelease Notes
  19. Chris Malek’s Running a PeopleSoft Query with Ruby over HTTP
  20. The scariest chart in the history of computing (for one company at least)

If there are any good sources that we miss, or suggestions for improvement please let me know in the comments. Thanks.

Wow, I am in the list twice! Thanks for stats. I really like the newsletter. It has pointed me to some new PeopleSoft blogs that I have since added to my RSS reader.
