Starting today, and on the first Tuesday of each following month, I will be sharing how well the Event Planner News website is doing. Each report will list the previous months performance, with information on website statistics, social media follower counts and top 10 discoveries.
The second quarter has started really well, with April seeing a huge increase in page views. There’s also been an increase in followers on Twitter too.
In April I published a big list of event industry podcasts and reiterated my commitment on being an independent source of news and to be advert free. This is something you can help me with by becoming a sponsor or by making a donation.
