Visitors & Interest

It has been great to see the interest in the SE Topic.  I have been collating thoughts on my next post which I hope to write over the weekend (and ideally be a bit shorter).  I am debating whether to post on Sales Enablement Framework or Metrics – Measuring the Success of the SE team.

In the meantime I wanted to share some thoughts on metrics as related to the topic of SE Leadership.  I am new to the whole Blogging thing but I am impressed already by its reach and as a data nerd I find the stats behind it pretty interesting.  I created two sites, and and here are some observations:

  • The vineyard site has a broad appeal (it is about wine and vineyards) and has had almost 3 times as many views as SE Thoughts
  • The SE site has had about 5x more people subscribe to updates.  Is that attributable to long term interest or better positioning of the subscribe widget?
  • has led to 10x the number of click throughs vs. my Twitter accounts (@robilium and @hollyhockvines).  What does that say about twitter and my 548 followers there?
  • Many more people on Facebook like Wine vs. SE stuff 🙂
  • About 500 people have visited each site for a total of 1,000 visitors.  Depending on your viewpoint that is a lot of people or just a drop in the bucket.  To me it is very cool and motivating.  That makes me want to see if I can keep the interest up and people returning for more.
  • 500 people per topic are about 499 more people than I thought may be interested.  Or maybe 498 as I figure my mother in law would have read it as well.  I know my lovely wife Julie wouldn’t have read it as she has to listed to me blab about this stuff enough as it is! 🙂

Thanks for visiting and if interested feel free to click the comment button at the top of the post and/or subscribe for updates on the left.  Also feel free to comment on what the topic of the next post should be. StatsScreen Shot 2016-04-01 at 4.52.34 AM Stats
