November’s here. I have already heard the obligatory ‘x’ days until Christmas, so December is lurking just around the corner! To keep myself occupied from thinking about the holiday season, I’m crunching through the data for our website finding what is working and what isn’t. As ever these posts have been chosen by YOU, the website visitor. In this case your not talking with your feet but are talking with your clicks.
For faithful readers of the blog, you’ll have noticed that my ‘popular’ daily posts have yet to make a come back. This isn’t because I don’t want to but I have been keeping up with the work flying in. I have, however, been writing up all the events we have been going to with some excellent points around all things content and all things video marketing. These will be posted very soon.
In addition I have been trying something a little new for October. A more in depth blog post on video and social media. We have been getting excellent feedback on these posts from people we have been speaking to so it looks like they are going to stay!
Finally we have also been creating some video content for you. I gave a talk at the University of Cumbria on the principles of networking and how they extend into social media so these will be posted very shortly.
Of course the top ten will tell us whether you like them or not.

A new entry! This blog post shows off the latest project we completed.

Since removing the Power of a Duck on Twitter (sorry, refuse to put in the link 😉 ) we have seen a drop in our traffic BUT an increase in the number of views across the other blog posts. It isn’t about the quantity of views you get but the quality.
