Why I Built This Resource

Henry working at Nectafy
I was actually happy in this picture, but you’re just going to have to believe me.

I ran a marketing agency called Nectafy before I started Buildremote.

We were responsible for growing website visitors and leads for clients every month. Some months, visits would drop and we would chase our tails looking for a reason why. It took me a few years to realize the amount of work days in a month changes (semi) drastically.

In one month, there would be 23 work days. In another, there would be 19. That’s a 17% difference in work days (ie. opportunities for prospects to visit our clients’ websites). Many times, that was the answer to a drop or increase in visits.

It made me realize that this information might be valuable to other people running businesses, so I did the calculations and provided a few different resources to quickly access the information you need. I hope you find it useful.

  1. There is an error in your chart. You have 184 working hours, 21 working days listed for March 2024. The 21 working days is correct, but that equates to 168 hours NOT 184 hours. Also if adding up the last column (which contains the incorrect 184 hours vs. the correct 168 hours for March) the total is not 2,008 hours. The total of 2,008 hours is correct if you fix March to say 168 hours not 184 hours.
