How One Company's New Blog Strategy Increased Lead Flow by 700% in One Year

Then consider this: 16% to 20% of searches people ask in Google have never been searched for before. No matter how unique your niche is, it's likely that people are searching for the content you'll create. The great thing about an inbound marketing tactic like blogging is that it lets you attract the most qualified prospects to your business, wherever they may be. In fact, some of the most dramatic successes we've seen with blogging come from businesses in niche industries. Take Conversant Bio, for example. Well, when Conversant Bio started a blog with the help of HubSpot Partner SmartBug Media and started creating content around disease research, their blog visits went from about 5,000 visits in December 2014 to 34,000 visits per month ten months later in October 2015.

Però è anche un po’ vero ;-) Febbraio 2016: 3.073 visitatori Luglio 2016: 7.385 visitatori Nota per il lettore precisino :-) ho scritto “un po’ vero” perché in realtà di nuovi articoli ne abbiamo scritti, e parecchi.

It all started with an issue seen by Facebook on its app: news and articles were taking too long to load on a smartphone. The average wait time between clicking on a link and starting to read the article is 8 seconds. Definitely too much time for Facebook, and a big roadblock for users who click on a link shared by their friends on the social network.
