1,000+ Views - Digital Journal of Advanced Appraisal Practice

This past Friday afternoon the Digital Journal of Advanced Appraisal Practice surpassed 1,000 views.

The Journal was announced and became available for flip-book viewing and PDF downloads at the ISA Annual Conference in the middle of April. I had expected viewership to be strong, but 1,000 views in about 6 weeks time has certainly outpaced my high expectations in viewership and in general for the success of the Journal.

When shifting from the print format to the online flip-book edition, along with no fees, I knew there would be strong interest, yet 1,000 views in such a short period of time shows the interest in professional and scholarly writings from within our profession.

In the past iteration, several hundred copies were printed and sold, but many were not aware of the publication and the strength of its content since 2008. The digital reach is now extremely wide, and it is getting into the hands of fellow appraisers and allied professionals.

The Journal contributors are now getting great exposure for their specialty area knowledge, expertise and appraising at an advanced level. This will enhance contributors exposure as well as credibility in multiple areas including when working with gatekeepers, HNWIs, allied professionals, seeking out complex and high paying assignments and vetting for expert witness testimony.
