Top 10 Blog Posts from The Social Media Hat in 2015

2015 has been particularly interesting for me, and hopefully for you as well. One of the shifts in my blogging focus has been to write less and less about breaking news stories, and more on Content Marketing as a marketing solution for bloggers and entrepreneurs. I think I've also become more adept at understanding what topics you're interested in, and which will resonate best, resulting in my needing to publish fewer blog posts overall.

That said, not every blog post resonated. Some didn't, while others performed extremely well. So with that, I give you 2015's Top Ten blog posts from The Social Media Hat.


It's one of my more recent posts so it hasn't cracked the Top Ten in terms of traffic yet, but I wanted to share with you my favorite post from 2015, This Star Wars Trailer Will Blow Your Marketing Mind. Of course, it's about Star Wars so you can naturally see the appeal... but there's more to it than that. If you haven't yet, please give it a read. You won't be disappointed!
