Our top posts from 2021 are determined by how many views they received from January 1st – December 31st. We published 37 articles last year, which is about three times per month.
This was about the same as years prior but there is one huge difference: this year, I was also writing a book on top of writing all of the blog articles. That’s a lot of writing!
My book is titled, The Credible Brand: The Fastest Way to Capture Attention, Establish Trust, and Generate Leads for Your Business. It’s for the service-based business owner who wants to learn an approach to marketing that brings all of the pieces together into one succinct strategy. We’re aiming for a February 2022 launch, however, we all are familiar with how the ongoing pandemic can quickly change timelines and plans.

Without further ado, here are the top posts from last year.

Just because you’ve been doing things the same way for years does not mean that you should keep doing them. Back when Lindsey started in social media, it was crucial to grow an audience (increase followers) on social media. Late last year she started thinking…what if it wasn’t important anymore? Here are her thoughts.

There are long-lasting benefits to publishing articles regularly on your business website. Many of the top 10 posts from 2021 that are listed above were written before 2021.

After all, customers will not buy from you if they don’t know about you.
