2010 in review January 2, 2011

Posted by Jack Macholl in Marketing, Marketing Planning, Referral marketing, Uncategorized.

Hello all,

As we start the New Year I wanted to share a very nice report that Word Press provides to bloggers. If you are a recent subscriber, please check out  the top-4 posts of 2010 (the podcast on market research with Jason Kuhl from the Arlington Heights Library is still available-well worth the listen).  If you have any topics from the world of marketing you’d like to see covered I’d welcome the ideas.

Should you know of anyone who would benefit from the free subscription to the Common Sense Marketing blog, please pass this link along.

Action is the key word sharpen those guerrilla marketing tactics and get things moving this week.

Here’s to you and a great 2011!


The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads This blog is doing awesome!.

Crunchy numbers

The Leaning Tower of Pisa has 296 steps to reach the top. This blog was viewed about 1,000 times in 2010. If those were steps, it would have climbed the Leaning Tower of Pisa 3 times

In 2010, there were 31 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 34 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 47mb. That’s about 3 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was April 12th with 27 views. The most popular post that day was Common Sense Marketing Podcast launches.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were facebook.com, digg.com, mail.yahoo.com, wisdombridgemarketing.com, and slashingtongue.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for jack macholl, “macholl”, wisdom bridge marketing, macholl, and take care of business in a flash.

I think about this all the time. How do I turn 4% contact into 10%. The answer is personal contact. Taking the time to speak with your client and get your message across. Taking the time to speak on a personal level sometimes pays off. I raised an eyebrow at my last review with an 1.5mil overall evaluation. Now how do I flip that into a 5.1mil eval? Step out of the box.
