Top Blogs of 2014

Top Blogs of 2014

This year was a huge step forward for contentgroup publishing.

We committed ourselves to publishing every day. Not just the working week. Every day of the week.

Our reason was simple. We wanted to help our users in their everyday lives. Not just through content marketing advice.

As we are only a team of 12 at contentgroup, we got a group of guest bloggers on board to help us achieve this goal. Thanks again to Adele Armstrong, Adrian Hall, Bob Crawshaw, Brian Byrnes, Byron Little, Craig Thomler, Dave Hohnke, Em Nicholson, Emi Styles, Grant Alleyn, Jack Jessen, Kate Pembroke, Kristian Bonnici, Michael Miller, Peter Ring, Richard Grainger, Rod Farrar and Vivienne Mitchell for your contributions.

We are blown away by the success of this regular publishing. To help improve the results even more we upped the tempo of our contentgroup newsletter from weekly to monthly and increased our ratio of tweets per day which returned over 800 retweets.

The result was over 21,000 users visited the website with over 70,000 page views – a 150% increase on the 2013 results.

We will continue to build on this with a wider variety of content, but the same regular consistency of publishing.
