Yearly Review: How Much Did Chief Health Grow This Past Year?

An exclusive look at our growth and success over the past year. We will show you what helped propel Chief Health forward into 2018.

How Long Have We Been Around?

Chief Health has articles dating back to January 1st, but we actually began writing near the end of March (shhh!). We are a little under 10 months old! However, our young age didn’t stop us from exploding onto the health, fitness, and happiness scene. But enough about us already – let’s get to the growth.

Where Did Our Viewership Come From?

In the beginning, we shared our content across most major social media platforms: LinkedIn, Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, & Pinterest. We continued to publish our content on all of these for the first three months and then decided to take a good look at what was working and what was wasting our time.

Here’s what we found out:

  1. The audience on LinkedIn doesn’t care much for health, fitness, and happiness advice or information (and if they do, they don’t care to read more about it from us).
  2. Even though we were able to gain over 1,000 likes on Facebook in our first three months – IT IS USELESS. Facebook has severely cut the influence of non-paying pages/posts. Posts with an image and a few sentences only reached 150 of the 1,400 likes, and any blog post we shared would get a max of 50 views (and maybe 1 or 2 clicks).
  3. We sporadically posted on Google Plus, but it wasn’t really helping because we weren’t able to completely engulf ourselves in the community.
  4. Instagram was great for posting images and sharing short amounts of information with a small audience, but very few people took the time to visit the website for more good reads.

LinkedIn, Facebook, Google Plus, & Instagram were a WASTE OF TIME for us. Although, all this new information allowed one social media platform to shine!
