Top Ten Social Marketing Articles of 2013

Print Friendly

Top Ten Social Marketing Posts of 2013 on DeniseWakeman.comAs the end of another year approaches, it’s common to look back to see what you’ve accomplished and body of digital content you’ve created. If you blog on a regular basis, you’ll see how much content you’ve published. It’s a good exercise for finding trends and learning about your readers. 

I spent some time looking over the social marketing articles my guest bloggers and I have published in 2013. I looked at traffic, comments and social shares to determine the top ten blog posts in 2013.

The Trends

  • 3 posts included videos from my Adventures in Visibility Hangouts on Air (HOA)
  • 4 posts were about Google+ (7 if you include the HOA posts)
  • 2 articles about Pinterest (one was an HOA)
  • 2 posts included infographics

Clearly a strategic direction for me is to continue doing live Hangouts and keeping my audience up to date on the strategies and tactics you can use on Google+ for your business. And, since I love Google+ and hosting Hangouts, I’m considering bumping them up from about one per month, to doing two per month.

I’ve created the Top Ten list on List.ly so you can vote on your favorite of the ten posts, comment, share and embed the list on your own blog, if you wish.

    When Google+ (also written as Google Plus) launched in June 2011, most people who pay attention to these things figured it would flop. And while it's not as popular and doesn't have as many active users as Facebook, Google+ has become a site you must not ignore anymore.

    Hey Denise,
    You had a wonderful year and I’m sure 2014 will be even better. I loved watching how you embraced Google Hang Outs on Air and you rocking them left and right now. Thanks for all the great content you’ve shared. I voted for everything on Listly that I had a chance to read or watch. I honestly can’t pick just one as a favorite.
    I’ll stop back and check out the rest soon!

    Happy holidays to you my dear, chat soon.
