What an amazing ride for ikbis.com over the past 8 weeks!
The site’s traffic has shot up. We’re talking about a many-fold growth which necessitated the addition of new servers to the infrastructure!
The Groundzero episodes have been coming out every monday. The first season of 13 episodes (the guys prefer to call them “the 12.5 episodes”) is now over. Watch out for season 2.
The ikbis team has also been busy putting out new “channels”. Check out, for example, the Khobbeizeh channel. More exciting developments on this front are being cooked.
And today, the site has a new advanced video player with improved features, interface and performance. One of my favorite new features of the new player is the ability to skip forward by dragging the player head on the timeline. The new player also looks pretty cool if I may say so..
And to top it all off, Ikbis redesigned one of its key pages, which we call the “single shot” page (in other words the page used to display a particular video or photo). The new design is more compact/streamlined, giving user easier access to related content, commenting, embedding and social bookmarking services.
The design also reflects the increasing demand from advertisers that ikbis has been experiencing, especially in the Gulf region.
The best thing of all, is that all of this work is coming out from the small team of developers, designers and producers at the ikbis office, who have shown that, with dedication, focus and a bit of crazy experimentation you CAN create a great web business without the need for a huge “management team” or “support personnel” and stuff like that.
