2024 is here, and with it comes a fresh start. As we leave 2023 behind, we’re taking time to reflect on the lessons learned and the data gathered, as these will be our foundation as we move forward into the new year.
One of our takeaways from 2023 is also an often-overlooked marketing rule: You can’t track what you don’t measure. So, as we continue to align our marketing strategy in 2024, we’ll focus on the customer experience and keeping up with industry trends. We’ll also be measuring our efforts along the way using data.
By paying close attention to which content makes the strongest connections with our customers, we can focus our content and delivery accordingly to give you more of what you want and need.
Our blog data from the past year tell us what our readers are most interested in—so look for more related content in these topic areas this year. In the meantime, in case you missed it, check out our best-performing blog content from the past 12 months.
