FinMeUp Monthly Newsletter: October

March 4, 2024

Tracking FinMeUp's progress through October 2022

Welcome to the FinMeUp monthly newsletter! Strap in as we discuss the progress of the past month, current developments, and future prospects. Lets dive in!


App Users

We have gained 867 new users in October, extending our total user base to 9,134. The 10K dream is literally around the corner. Celebrations loading!


Social Media

Our team and mentors are all contributing to making FinMeUp as visible as possible. Our social media goal for October was to fire up our Twitter game. Did it work? Well, the proof is in the pudding. The FinMeUp Twitter page has seen an all-time-high in both user engagement and growth. 

Whilst October was all Twitter-Twitter-Twitter, November will be the catalyst for our YouTube channel. We are launching a brand-new YouTube series: The Quiz Master, which will premier later this week. 

Social media followers:

  • Instagram: 23,906 (+296)
  • Twitter: 12,739 (+639)
  • YouTube: 8,350 (+66)
  • Facebook: 2,061 (+901)
  • LinkedIn: 3,172 (+115)


The Daily Quiz 

The Quiz (or Quizzy, as we call it in the office) has slowly been gaining traction. Though the feature has only been live for three weeks, we have seen an influx of new daily active users, all competing to become the ultimate quiz master. 

Quiz of the day players:

  • Week 1 average: 58
  • Week 2 average: 92
  • Week 3 average: 133


Money Matters Event 

On 20 October, we hosted the very first FinMeUp event: "Money Matters - an evening of finances, investments, and networking."

The audience was blessed with some amazing speakers and panellists, including Daniel Strauss, Smalltalkdaily (Anthony Clark), Soul FinancialCarly Barnes, and Higgo van Biljon.

Thank you so much to all who attended, and especially to our two winners, Anja Pretorius and Lesley Brown, who both walked away with R1000 vouchers from EasyEquities.
