PictureTrail Reaches One Million Accounts and Hosts Over Three Million Unique Visitors Monthly

Photo Sharing site's continued success due to word of mouth.

San Francisco, California, September 15, 2003 - PictureTrail, a popular online Photo Sharing destination announced today it has reached the milestone of one million accounts on its system. Additionally, the site now accommodates more than 3 million unique visitors each month.

PictureTrail has grown vigorously since its launch in 2000. With minimal focus on marketing or public relations, its steady increase of users from around the world has been fueled mainly by satisfied members getting friends and family to join.

"We're happy to see the popularity of PictureTrail expanding almost entirely by word of mouth," said Val D'Souza, President of PictureTrail.

Instead of focusing on marketing and public relations, PictureTrail has concentrated its efforts on optimizing user experience and making it as easy as possible to manage and share photos on the site.

"We receive regular feedback from our members praising the various customization options for their images and albums," said D'Souza. "It's not only the increasing array of background patterns, album covers and music styles, but also the functional aspects of the site, like our Image View statistics that allow users to see how many visitors view which albums and pictures."

But the human element has also contributed to PictureTrail's rapid growth.

"Many of the members who contact our customer service end up writing us thank you notes praising our support personnel as articulate, patient and personable," said James Marte, Member Services Manager of PictureTrail. "Our staff thoroughly understands the workings of the site and takes the time to address the concerns of each member's help request."
