    -- Kannada Association of Greater Greenville (Jan 15, 2016) --

    KAGG has over the years grown leaps and bounds. We now can boast of a significant increase in the presence at the KAGG UGADI function. The event has a majority of the local Asian Indian community. In the past we have had visitors from Atlanta, Ashville, Raliegh & relatives attending the function from far of places like California. We also have had people from different ethnicities come to the function as well.

    We thank all the sponsors who have/will be renewing their sponsorship in 2016.

    Why this is a good time to sponsor the KAGG UGADI function?*

    If website traffic patterns are any indication, we receive the maximum traffic (over the span of the year) leading upto the KAGG UGADI event.

    The visitors and source region also vary significantly during this time and increase as we near the UGADI event.

    The sooner you are on board the higher the visibility

    The maximum traffic is during the month of the event

    The website traffic has grown by approx. 50% since 2013 to 2014.

    We are aware of instances where visitors have looked up information like website address, phone #s other information on the KAGG website. Because they remember seeing it on the site.

    Last year in October we had 90% of the traffic as compared to the month of the event in March. Why you ask? Searches for 'Kannada Rajyotsava' lead visitors to

    The high traffic does not have to end at the event. We try to keep the traffic up even after the event.
