It’s that time again, Big Thinkers. Time to round-up your most favorite, must-read digital marketing and e-commerce posts from last month. And there’s some great stuff this time around.
Long-time readers of this series will note that I haven’t included any Travel Tuesday posts in this list. Beginning this month, I’ll be breaking those out separately. Look forward to a dedicated list of the top Travel Tuesday posts of July tomorrow. Anyway, here’s the the list of this month’s must-read digital marketing and e-commerce posts:
- The most popular post of all this past month explored “The Shocking Truth About Millennials and Digital Media”. Given the influence that millennials have on digital marketing, I guess that’s no surprise. But the data is. So check it out when you get the chance.
- I announce my E-commerce and Internet Marketing All-Stars every year in July, and this year’s collection, “The 2014 E-commerce and Internet Marketing All-Stars: The Top 9 Blogs,” was the second most popular post this past month. Take a look and see why.
- Posts that examine trends in detail tend to be very popular each month. Which helps explain this look at the “7 Reasons E-commerce Growth Has Nowhere to Go But Up” attracted so much attention in July.
- eBay made a huge SEO error, one that’s going to cost them about $200 million in revenue this year. “Panda Attacks: What You Can Learn from eBay’s E-commerce SEO Mistake” helps uncover what happened — and how you can keep it from happening to you.
- Thinks Out Loud, my weekly podcast, provides the next entry in this list, this time with Episode 82: “Mobile and E-commerce Go Hand-in-Hand.”
- Oh, and Thinks Out Loud also offers up Episode 79, “What Works in Digital Today?” to round out this month’s list of the top digital marketing and e-commerce posts.
