Our Best, Our Most, Our Worst: 2020 in Relationship Marketing Content

Our Best, Our Most, Our Worst: 2020 in Relationship Marketing Content

Where do we even start to conclude 2020?

We don’t.

instead, what we’ll do is list you everything we published this year that we think you could use in 2021.

And so – here’s PostFunnel’s au revoir to 2020 (and good riddance).

Oh, and before we start – if you want to tell us what YOU liked and hated the most about our content this year, take 60-70 seconds to complete this quick poll.

Top5: Content You Liked The Most

  1. The North Face Marketing Strategy — Overcome Challenges with Human Connections
  2. How Zara Is Helping to Prevent Covid-19
  3. Emily In Paris: 4 Things Marketers Can Learn, and 2 They Should Not
  4. Our B2c CRM (=B2CRM) News Page (we recommend checking it out daily)
  5. Our Marketing Amid Corona Ebook (lots of still super relevant insights)
    Tied with
    Our CRM Only Job Board (updated every Friday)

Bottom 5: Our Least Visited Pages
(and what we learned from it)

  1. Kohl’s Making the Right Moves at the Right Time (Our Data Proves)
    We published more than 260 news items in 2020. Some will get less attention than others. But we think this item was a good one and are not quite sure why it got very little clicks.
  2. £100M for Inclusion
    With this one, we think a more informative title would help. Still, the story in this piece was worth telling we think.
  3. Not Enough Personalization
    This is weird. On one hand, our “7 CRM Commandments” series is very popular. On the other, this piece here at #3, which is an infographic summary of the series’ first 10 episodes, did very poorly. What was it? The infographic itself? The title? The timing? We’ll try again next year, see how it goes.
  4. Podcasts We Loved: July 2020
    This was the first episode of our new “Podcasts We Loved” series. And it went unnoticed. We agree – it wasn’t as good as the ones that came after it (which did much better in terms of getting your clicks).
  5. Our Contact Us Page
    Ah. That’s okay. Not taking it personally (Sure we do).
