The Top 15 Marketing Articles of 2016 (So Far!)

The Top 15 Marketing Articles of 2016 (So Far!) Blog Feature

Ramona Sukhraj

Associate Director of Content, Strategized Initiatives That Increased IMPACT’s Website Traffic From ~45K to ~400K

August 1st, 2016 min read


It’s hard to believe, but 2016 is already a little more than half gone.

Between the rise of Facebook Live, the removal of the Google AdWords sidebar, and the surge in Snapchat daily active users, the inbound marketing world has seen a great deal of change in a matter of just a few months -- and it shows no sign of slowing down.

To help you catch up and prepare for the second half of the year, I’ve collected 2016’s 15 most popular articles from the IMPACT Blog (so far) and shared them below.

Skim through them, take some notes, and feel free to share them with your friends or colleagues!
