Welcome to the Fractional Life March Newsletter
Fractional Life goes globe-trotting
Our more observant readers may have noticed a certain famous American landmark in our header image (although devoid of it's recognisable hue and instead coloured 'fractional fuchsia'). Why? I hear you cry. Well, a number of the FL team are currently in San Francisco attending the annual Ragatz Fractional Ownership Interest Conference at which Fractional Life founder Piers Brown is a guest speaker.
We will be putting news from the conference on our homepage and News section so be sure to check it out by clicking here. Dr Richard Ragatz will be a guest speaker at the London based Fractional Summit next month- April 23-34. Continue to our dedicated Fractional Summit site to book your place.
More #1 rankings and almost 1 million hits in a single month
Hot on the heels of the news that we rank number one for Google ‘fractional ownership’ and ‘fractional property’ natural keyword search in many of the key fractional ownership consumer markets worldwide (you can see the rankings here if you missed them last month) we are pleased to tell you that for February we achieved a staggering 965,646 website hits.
Next target is the magic 1 million but it's worth noting that our February daily average was 34,487 so had it been any other month or even a 29-day Leap Year Feb' we would have cracked it!
Fractional Life in the media
Keeping on the theme of beating last month's achievements- we were very pleased with some media coverage of fractionals in the Daily Mail newspaper but this month we went several better with Fractional Life founder Piers Brown appearing on the BBC's Working Lunch television show to discuss the fractional marketplace. Other media snippets can be found on our Press page.

Fractional Life on Twitter- follow us!
Fractional Life like to keep up to speed with the latest tech and many of you won't have failed to notice that Twitter is taking over the world right now. For those who don't know Twitter is a free social messaging utility for staying connected in real-time, allowing one to 'micro-blog'. We thought it sounded like a good way of keeping in touch with our readers so we've decided to get involved and offer up our very own Twitterings that will let you know when there are new stories on the site, the latest FL events and other random musings on matters of interest.
At the moment things are pretty quiet (talking to oneself isn't healthy!) but to start 'following' us visit our Twitter page here (simply click the Follow button) and once we have a few sign-ups we'll start with the updates.
