This Brand Blog Grew to 50 Million Monthly Readers in Just 10 Months. Here’s How

This Brand Blog Grew to 50 Million Monthly Readers in Just 10 Months. Here’s How | Hot Blog Tips | Scoop.it

I'm just quoting an extract from Natalie Burg's article: 

Of those 100 or so fully composed daily stories, only about 15 will make it to the blog. The curators gnaw the contender list down by testing each with unpublished paid posts on Facebook. Rather than simply posting a link to their audience, PetFlow pays to distribute them to a certain segment of Facebook users who aren’t fans. If a post meets a certain criteria—a classified combo of likes, clicks, shares, or comments—it graduates to the blog and is shared with the PetFlow Facebook pack.

A fascinating look at the Upworthy-like curation system!

Why Ello is Not the End of Facebook, and Other Social Media Tales by @adhutchinson

Why Ello is Not the End of Facebook, and Other Social Media Tales by @adhutchinson | Hot Blog Tips | Scoop.it
It seems like every few months there’s another Facebook killer that comes into play. Early in 2014, Facebook was done, abandoned by teens, a blow that would equate to a slow death by a thousand non-clicks as the effects of losing that young audience rippled through, demographic by demographic. Based on various studies since, the youth migration seems to have some base – teens sick of having their parents, (or worse: grandparents), commenting on their status updates and life choices were migrating to cooler pastures, places where the adults hadn’t yet taken up residence. That, and the rapid growth of Snapchat, was enough to have commentators rattling off obituaries for the world’s largest social network – which continues to grow every day. Ello is the latest name on everyone’s cursor tips, the latest answer to the question of ‘what’s the future of social media?’ But is Ello the Facebook killer, as alleged, or is it another case of mistaken identity?

Social Book Marking is and online centralized service that facilitates users to add, edit and share bookmarks with a wider community. The site only saves the link to the bookmarked site and not the resouce itself. Description can be added in form of metadata, which the users can nderstand easily without having to download the whole resource.

Six months later channel is growing at twice that rate and continues to increase month over month! Why?

Yep, I can feel the stress relaxing to bearable levels again and I can’t think of anything better for our creative ability than being able to relax and concentrate without nagging little distractions forcing their way into our immediate thoughts. Logging it into reality, for me anyway, puts a lid on the distraction.

You'll love the tip from +Andy Crestodina 


Pop open Analytics and look at Acquisition > Social > Conversions.This report shows you how many people from which social networks are taking action.


If you want to dig into the data, measure the total traffic that came from each network and divide it by the number of conversions.


Now you’ll know the conversion rate, which is the likelihood that they’ll become customers!

Now you can see which social networks are bringing you the visitors that are likely to act.


Focus on those networks. Those are the visitors who are most likely to become paying customers."

Of the seven most popular reasons to embrace social media, the top four were: connecting with customers (78%), marketing and promotion (72%), building online reputation (72%) and advertising (69%).  From a personal standpoint, it’s so interesting to me that businesses are still focused less on marketing or promoting or advertising than they are listening – what a missed opportunity....
