fcp.co 100000 uniques

A huge milestone in the history of our website, FCP.co has achieved over 100,000 absolute unique viewers a month. A time for a celebration, cake and a big thank you to all our readers.

When we set FCP.co up, we felt that there wasn't a site on the internet that was dedicated to Final Cut Pro. So instead of whinging about it, we built one from scratch. It was made as the site we wanted to read.

Since then, FCPX has been released and we have stuck right in there with the rollercoaster it has proved to be. The recent 10.0.6 update has again changed a lot of people's perception of the NLE and thankfully the individuals who keep knocking it are dropping off.

Achieving over 100,000 unique visitors a month is huge news for us, in fact with the news of the update we have shot right past that benchmark already. It proves there is a large community out there of editors who are using FCPX on a regular basis and want to know more. If you need any more proof, then take a look at our vibrant Forum. It has been described more than once as the best Final Cut Pro X forum on the internet.

So we would like to say a big thank you to everybody who has supported this site. From the people behind the scenes who make sure the site loads when you click, the advertisers, the contributors and of course to all our readers.

Looking to the future we hope to expand again.

A small redesign of the website is in progress to offer better opportunities to advertisers now that we are part of the 100,000 club. 

We are always on the lookout for good content, it could be tutorials, reviews or user stories. If you have or find anything you think our readers would find interesting, then please let us know.

We are also on the lookout for writers too, so if you think you can produce content for the site then again please get in contact.

The Editor.
