From time to time, we like to report on our own progress, and this week, our newsletter will go out to more than 55,000 readers from Argentina to Armenia.
North America and Europe remain our biggest markets, at 42% and 27%, respectively.
Our biggest demographic is still forklift users and fleet managers, but dealers are not far behind.
And for those only impressed by big numbers, in August we enjoyed nearly 14 million hits, with the average visitor spending almost 15 minutes on the website each visit.
