Tip: Do not focus on Facebook

Tip: Do not focus on Facebook | Social Media News | Scoop.it
Bleacher Report is one of the most popular sports news websites in the world, so much so that they are competing with the likes of ESPN, CBS, etc.

And they are not committed to Facebook, which is a different strategy when compared to most publishers.

As the largest social network with a ton of tools designed for publishers and content marketers, it is easy to focus on Facebook as a distribution and audience channel.

Top Ten Blog Posts from 2014

It's become something of a tradition to review the most popular articles from your year. More than just sneaking in an extra blog post on New Year's Eve, I think it's a great exercise... an audit, if you will. While I may have my own personal favourites, as a blogger, what needs to matter more to me is which articles are your favourites. Which topics and posts resonated with you more than all the others?

And while there were some interesting surprises, it's also gratifying to see that several of my ideas and strategies this past year paid off. I put a lot of effort into making a few posts epic - and your responses were genuinely appreciated.

So this is a Thank You post to each of you. Maybe you've seen all these articles, or maybe you'll catch a couple you missed. Either way, I sincerely appreciate you and am looking forward to a fantastic 2015!

#Blogging  #SocialMedia #ContentMarketing
#BestOf2014 #TopTenList 

P.S. I would be remiss if I didn't mention a few people who really stood out this year - people upon whom I depend and owe a great deal. THANK YOU, each of you, for everything you've done to help and support me.
