Why I Built This Resource
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.
