Our First Ever Newsletter!

This our first ever Newsletter! ClassicArabia.comis an on-line classifieds site that is designed specifically for posting cars, boats, bikes, watches, property and art. A couple of weeks ago we [very] quietly announced our beta website. Its been a very busy time since then!

First of, We would like to thank everyone that has joined so far and helped us create a unique and simple experience. We've been analysing our server logs and its been fascinating to see where most of the hits come from. Primarily most visitors have come from the GCC (as expected). Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE represent our top countries so far. But we've had visits from over 22 countries, including several visits from Iraq (...seriously!)

"Not so Simple" - Beta's and Bugs:

The response to the site has been extremely positive. We've also had some great feedback regarding the the look and feel of the site. We've been tweaking the site continuously since day one and some great improvements have been made as a result of customer feedback. A couple of bugs have come to light thanks to the feedback of our customers, we've fixed all the ones reported so far and will continue to fix any new ones. A special thanks to our users who contacted us about bugs on the site.

We would like to thank everyone who has been part of our beta site so far and stay tuned for more updates and enhancements to the site.
