  • I personally believe that the 430,000 people on your email list is a gross exaggeration of how effective that list is. I’m sure many got suckered onto it by signing up for a giveaway. I’d be willing to be that your click-through rate is the standard 3% or so. That’s just my opinion, of course.

  • Catherine Roberts

    I would like to nominate the blog, “No Nonsense Telling It Like It Is” – https://urbanimagemagazine.com/.

  • Believe what you will Greg but we have 1 million visitors a month and the list is grown organically

  • Donna Sandsmark

    I am proud to nominate the Ignite Visibility blog https://ignitevisibility.com/blog/. John Lincoln and his team are an amazing resource to all.

  • What’s your open rate and click-through rate?

  • Greg, how many people are on your list and what is your open rate? Of course I really don’t want to know because that is your proprietary information and it is none of my business.

  • I use MailChimp and currently have 43 subscribers. My last campaign was December 14. I had 22 opens, or 51.2%. My click-through rate was 2 clicks, or 4.7%.

    My open rate is beating the average, as is my click-through rate. The latter is horrendous, however.

    I feel many have this problem, perhaps most.

    A month or so ago I had 97 subscribers, if I remember right. I went ahead and culled many from the list as they just weren’t opening.

    See, they’d jumped on because I was giving something away for free. Sometimes it was a Google+ guide, other times it was an ESL guide. Either way, they got what they wanted and left.

    I suspect that’s the same problem you have with your annual guide.

  • Vilma Betancourt

    Donna Moritz of Socially Sorted is a visual content genius and she shares tons of excellent tips to help us improve our social media images and marketing. I believe I discovered her through Social Media Examiner, you’re the best and I am grateful for Mike, Kim and Eric communicating with us on a weekly basis.

  • RJ Kelly

    I am nominating the clever folks at Ignite Visibility. Concise. Informative. Witty. I look forward to receiving it.

  • Vilma Betancourt

    Greg I subscribe to SMExaminer on YouTube, G+, blab, their newsletter mailing list and follow them on Twitter. I share their blog posts with business women nationwide.

    I am not sure what your point is, but I gather by your comments that you are clueless about the powerhouse that Mike Stelzner and Social Media Examiner are. Together with his exceptional staff, Mike shares the latest and greatest of apps and different social media platforms.

    They are a “powerhouse” because they are respected and they guide their hundreds of thousands of followers, like myself. They possess the power to influence us to try new apps, programs, systems, etc. And we TRUST Mike, Kim, Eric, SME staff and their opinions. No amount of clicking or open rate can compare to the ginormous value that SME freely provides to their readers/followers.

    I don’t personally know Mike, his staff or guest bloggers but I can tell you that collectively they are changing the world in a positive way. They reach hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, a claim you obviously cannot make.
    But you can learn from them and grow your mailing list if you follow their lead. They deliver excellence consistently. Listen to their podcast – listen and learn. It’s free.

  • I nominate the Ignite Visibility blog https://ignitevisibility.com/blog/.

  • I just don’t see that. Most posts have low engagement. Tips are basic. Advice often doesn’t work.

    Email marketing is a great example, and we’re all to blame. We accept low numbers as business as usual. That’s a shame.

    I feel those we put on a pedestal and call experts often aren’t living up to that title.

  • KatyaLunchepreneurs

    I would love to nominate Lucy Hall – http://lucyshall.com/ – Her blog is so diverse and so fun. It’s really her personality and her videos that make it so engaging. Also, she has lots of FREE useful material that I always downlaod.

  • Lisa

    ‘i want to nominate Lucy from lucyshall.com because She is so incredibly committed to sharing valuable content to her readers and viewers! Her passion is contagious!

  • Lucy Hall has a fantastic blog. She is honest, real and has really helped a social media manager in training 🙂 http://lucyshall.com

  • Peg Fitzpatrick at pegfitzpatrick.com has done the unbelievable this part year… she actually stepped UP her game, which was already Jordan-esque. With her Art of Social Media book and weekly articles delving into every platform, her blog rocks.

  • LOVE More In Media’s blog. Always good, relevant content for small business success. http://moreinmedia.com/bloglatest-news/

  • Mark Besh

    I would like to nominate Jeff Bullas at http://www.jeffbullas.com/ Current, insightful, comprehensive.

  • This year I would like to nominate Mike Allton and his site http://thesocialmediahat.com/

  • John Yeung

    I nominate the Ignite Visibility blog https://ignitevisibility.com/blog/ because it provides the latest news and techniques on SEO!

  • Greg – are you seriously the expert with 43 subscribers?

  • I can’t tell you how much that means to me coming for you, @mallton:disqus – thank you so much!

  • Andy Kelly

    I vote for https://ignitevisibility.com/blog – the best technical SEO guidance on anything from initial SEO audits to website transfers and more.

  • I nominate Target Latino’s blog. Great insights on the Hispanic market which are a growing consumer in the U.S. The blog provides great insight for companies on how to target the Hispanic market and not offend. http://hispanic-marketing.com/posts/

  • It’s my pleasure.

  • Thank you for your kind words! 😉 I appreciate you.

  • Thank you Lisa! This really does mean a lot. 😉

  • Clare! Thank you! 😉

  • Kyle Sandsmark

    I nominate the Ignite Visibility blog https://ignitevisibility.com/blog/ as they have always been a place for me to get real insights relative to social media. Articles you read from other places give high level tips that most social media experts know. But at Ignite Visibility they provide so much depth that I always use it as my book of truth.

  • Ali Meehan

    fionacatchpowle.com aka #askcybergran because she is a brilliant teacher, helps newbies understand social media, delivers great courses and shares informative content. https://www.facebook.com/AskCyberGran/

  • barbara lincoln

    I nominate
    https://ignitevisibility.com/blog
    for its great social media articles!

  • Chrystal Lenardson

    I nominate the Ignite Visibility blog: https://ignitevisibility.com/blog/ – it’s a consistently reliable source of new information that occurs in the social media world. The articles are comprehensive and relevant.

  • I love reading Vincent Ng over at MCNGMarketing.com http://www.mcngmarketing.com/

    Also think Rebekah Radice is killing it this year (http://rebekahradice.com) & Ian Anderson Grey http://iag.me does well too.

  • Danielle Tackoor

    I nominate Ignite Visibility – https://ignitevisibility.com/blog. Their complete guides on different aspects of digital marketing are so great that I bookmark them for future reference.

  • Amy Lincoln

    I nominate Ignite Visibility because they always have cutting edge advice.

  • Chad

    This dude hereby nominates John Lincoln and the Ignite Visibility blog: https://ignitevisibility.com/blog/. It’s very informative and a great resource for social media insights and trends. Don’t post without it!

  • Morgan Dixon

    I would like to nominate https://ignitevisibility.com/blog/ All of Ignite’s blog posts are very helpful and full of great information. I often reference their how-to posts when I need additional information regarding social media and SEO.

  • Hey thanks Randy! Appreciate that.

  • For this crowd http://blog.hootsuite.com/ has some great, often more advanced info and advice.

  • Carol Pressnall Leek

    I nominate web designer, Kenn Schroder at Coaching Sites That Work – http://coachingsitesthatwork.com. His site is chock full of insights, information, and goodness. The freebies that he hands out are so valuable and useful, and his personality shines through with his subtle humor. He also is very generous in promoting others than himself.

  • I so wanted to say that too @PegFitzpatrick:disqus

  • Stating the obvious I guess but seriously? People who troll comments for attention aren’t winning friends. On Greg’s post on G+ with a link to this article he said, “Maybe you want to strut your stuff by mentioning your blog in these comments.” So I guess this is him strutting himself.

  • I would love to nominate http://www.rebekahradice.com! Rebekah’s blog is filled with fun, relevant, actionable social media tips/updates! She also consistently highlights other experts and shares their success and stories. Cheers! ✨

  • I really appreciate it, Mike! Blogging is hard and having the respect of your blogging peers is amazing. 🙂

  • Rebecca

    I nominate Rebekah Radice http://rebekahradice.com/, great content that is free. Her discussions are so informative with the latest and greatest topics and issues.

  • Maria Tselevich

    I nominate Christoph Trappe and his authentic Storytelling blog – http://authenticstorytelling.net/

  • I nominate Christoph Trappe and his blog, the Authentic Storytelling Project. http://authenticstorytelling.net/

  • Sandra Fancher

    I would like to nominate The Authentic Storytelling Project at authenticstorytelling.net. Blog is
    educational, unique, and full of great advice. Christoph is willing to try
    different approaches and tactics and openly shares their successes and
    failures.

  • Jenn Herman

    Thank you so much Katie! I appreciate your vote and happy to hear you enjoy the posts 🙂

  • Jenn Herman

    I nominate Mike Allton at The Social Media Hat. Mike is the blogger we all strive to be and has super human powers in his ability to create both exceptional quality and significant volume.

  • Christoph Trappe

    Thank you so much.

  • Christoph Trappe

    Thanks, Martin.

  • Christoph Trappe

    Thanks, Maria.

  • Dominick Sirianni

    It’s my pleasure to nominate Christoph Trappe of http://authenticstorytelling.net. Christoph focuses on sharing positive stories without adding hype. His message is aspirational and he engages his audience across the full spectrum of social media.

  • Ann Marie O.

    I’d like to nominate http://www.b2onlinemedia.com/blog/ — the B Squared blog! It has a great variety of content.

  • Charlie Balk

    I nominate likeable for likeable.com/blog – best blog in the biz (other than social media examiner)

  • I would still nominate Buffer blog like last year –> https://blog.bufferapp.com

    They are still producing some awesome content from their experiences which certainly help and are on the top of my list of blogs to read daily 🙂

  • Christoph Trappe

    Thank you so much. I appreciate it.

  • I nominate The Social Media Hat for providing consistent practical, tactical content and advice…

  • Expert at what? Growing a list? “Social Media marketing”? Blogging? Blog commenting?

    Greg writes about Montana and writing (you can get that basic info just by clicking through his profile). So I’d care not a jot about how many subs he has (or doesn’t), because that’s not what he wants to be known for.

    That’s the thing with this social media circle jerk, people always trying to use numbers as a level of so-called “expertise”.

    Meanwhile, elsewhere, people are just getting on with business and creating real success.

  • Thanks so much Todd! I really appreciate that.

  • Wow, thanks Jenn! That’s an amazing endorsement coming from you. Keep up the great work. 🙂

  • I would like to nominate Jenn Herman http://jennstrends.com/

  • @disqus_S93q6voTm3:disqus you’re entitled to your opinion, as you say, but if you’re going to criticise anyone at least do it from a position of strength. I can’t really see you have this so at least give the team at Social Media Examiner credit where credit is due 😉

  • My opinion is that Social Media Examiner, like most “expert” sites that tout their ability to give advice, have fallen far. I don’t view their advice as that helpful, that cutting-edge, or frankly, that good. I know this bothers people, but what can you do – shut up and let the travesty continue? These sites, if they do purport to be the top sites, need to do a better job.

  • Tim Bosch

    I nominate Likeable Media- http://www.likeable.com/blog. This blog is great and is always up to date with unique perspectives on social media marketing.

  • I haven’t felt the need to mention my blog, Peg, and the reason for that is I don’t really care. I’m not interested in a bunch of Social Media Examiner users coming to my site, mainly because I don’t think it’d help me long term.

    If my 43 subscribers bothers you, I’m sorry. Are you going to browbeat all the other struggling bloggers that comment here as well?

  • This is such a difficult thing to do and I almost feel guilty for picking just one blog!

    There are about a dozen or so blogs that I turn to every day for information but I think if I REALLY have to nominate just one it’s got to be @mallton:disqus’s Social Media Hat. Mike doesn’t just scratch the surface of a subject, leaving you wanting more information, but really digs deep. I always feel I’ve learnt something of value: http://www.thesocialmediahat.com/

    Thanks Mike!

  • Thanks a lot Nicky! And I know just what you mean. There are a couple dozen bloggers that I rely on, but I’m thankful to them getting nominations from others here, as they’re all deserving of recognition.

  • Jen Walker

    I nominate Jenn’s Trends! http://www.jennstrends.com/

  • You’ve missed the point, Danny. Mr. Strandberg decided to use this venue to jump and down on SME, stating, “Tips are basic. Advice often just doesn’t work.”

    He’s issued judgement on SME, one that many of us feel is unfair and unjust.

    You call it a social media circle jerk. I call it friends sticking up for friends.

    The truth, I fear, is that Mr. Strandberg simply didn’t understand all of the advice he was reading and therefore got poor results. He said that he acquired 50% of his subscribers after offering a free download guide to Google+. Ok, that’s a sound tactic that’s often written about here and elsewhere. But it lacked sound strategy. As you pointed out, Danny, this guy’s site is about Montana and writing, so why in the world offer readers a guide on Google+? OF COURSE they never opened another email.

    Look, we all like to believe that we’re experts at whatever it is we’re looking at. Just walk into any Buffalo Wild Wings on a Sunday afternoon and listen to hundreds of self-proclaimed NFL experts. But the fact is, not one of those guys would be welcome on the field because they’re NOT experts and they’re not in possession of all the facts. They haven’t spent days studying the opponent, reviewing the plays, practiced with the team, or been made aware of each and every injury. They don’t know the kicker shanked every kick from over 30 yards all week in practice, so the team has to go for it on fourth down rather than risk missing a kick.

    That’s OK when you’re at home or out with friends, but there’s a reason why sports journalists don’t waste column inches on tirades against every one of the coaches calls that didn’t work out, at least not the journalists that want to keep their jobs next season.

    If you want to call someone out publicly and make claims that they aren’t any good at their job, you had better be prepared to back that up.

  • Have you stopped to consider that, perhaps, they aren’t writing for YOU?

    The best bloggers figure out who their audience is and write for them, even if that means leaving out people who might be looking for more basic, or more advanced, information.

  • He made a valid point about subscribers. You can have as many subs as you want, and wave that in peoples’ faces. The truth of the matter is, it’s active ones that count.

    It was an opinion, but of course he’s hit with the standard “well, we have X amount blah blah blah” and then “how expert can you be when you only have so and so”.

    I’m all for friends “sticking up”, but I’m also for people having the right to make a statement about vanity metrics.

    Depending on levels of interest and expertise, tips here might be basic, or 101. To others, they may be useful or intermediate. That’s a simple fact of business.

  • Mitchell Haw

    I would like to nominate https://ignitevisibility.com/blog/ as I read it pretty much every morning along with a few other go-to blogs

  • I’d love to nominate our company blog, http://postbeyond.com/blog. We cover all topics related to Employee Advocacy, from simple how-to’s, to scaling programs to your enterprise.

Hope to be considered, and Happy Holidays to the SocialMedia Examiner Team.

  • Omar Popat

    I vote PostBeyond! We are very proud of our blog, lots of good stuff in there 🙂 http://postbeyond.com/blog/

  • I’ll state the obvious again, you’re the one that came to this post with an agenda and an attitude. Since you don’t seem to enjoy Social Media Examiner’s awesome blog is to not read it. Thousands of people learn from it every day and love it. It was a huge source of education for me when I started blogging and I’m a proud writer for SME. I wish you lots of luck with your blog and growing your list.

  • Mike Arlinsky

    Jenn’s Trends or Jenn Herman. I bought her book, enjoy her tweets on relevant social media and even have my notifications on for her so I can see her latest posts.

  • Gabbie Diassi
  • I nominate Katie Lance and her blog at katielance.com

  • Thanks @vilma_betancourt:disqus – I really appreciate this (and love your other comment above as well touche!)…would you mind adding the link – not sure if it counts if I do it haha (and that’s awesome that you discovered me through Social Media Examiner – that’s a double honor for sure! – It’s one of the things I am most proud of is writing and speaking for them.

  • Gökhan Topuz

    I nominate Razor Social http://www.razorsocial.com/ Ian is my favorite digital marketing master

  • Let me tell you two things I’m disappointed by.

    First, the inability of this site to come out and tell us what it’s email list is like for conversions. My God, that’d be a great blog post. Alas, Michael is too afraid to share that information. I personally believe doing so would help his business more than hurt it.

    Second, it’s a shame that you, Peg, browbeat me on my puny email list. As a writer that’s focusing on beginner-level content, you’d think you’d not do that. After all, I’m sure most people who read this site are experiencing similar results as I. Now we know that far from showing concern about that person, you’re really just focused on what will help you.

    Again, these are my opinions, as I stated clearly when I made my first comment on this post two days ago.

    We should be welcoming provocative opinions. Instead we shoot them down. Why are we so threatened, why are we so scared?

  • I know how much these awards mean as a winner last year, so it is REALLY hard to choose one blog as I love so many…. so I am going to go for a blog that hasn’t won before BUT has been on the top of my list for content for over a year now – Agorapulse’s Blog http://www.agorapulse.com/blog. Emeric Ernoult and the Agorapulse team publish quality content about Facebook, Twitter and Instagram primarly (with posts also on Content Marketing, and the other usual suspects like Pinterest and Twitter. Their articles are step-by-step how-to posts that are written in clear, easy to understand language. Even their advanced Facebook Ads posts are user friendly. If you are reading these comments for blog posts to check out, then do yourself a favour and check out Agorapulse and I hope they make it to the finalists!

  • Vilma Betancourt

    Hey Donna! I’m sorry I initially didn’t include the link, but now I’ve added a hyperlink to your blog. Your visual content designs are amazing. I truly appreciate the time and effort you put into your blog and sharing so many great tips with us, your loyal followers. Happy Holidays – wishing you a very successful 2016!

  • TOTALLY FINE Vilma! – I am more excited to meet a reader who loves the content – that’s my favourite part of these awards.. seeing all the readers speak out for their blogs, and sometimes they are not even the people that would normally comment or maybe they are newer followers and the blogger hasn’t met them in conversation before – It’s a great reminder for all of us as bloggers to not get hooked on the social shares and remember that there are a lot of people out there reading that we may not know about!

    Greg, you’ve made assumptions without having the knowledge of how effective the SME newsletter and blog/website are to the readers. I don’t care what the open/click/share rates are for Mike and SME – my focus has always been: what’s in it for me? What am I learning? Is the content easy to follow so that I can share it with my MasterMind and circle of influence? You see, it’s not about them and their “numbers”, it’s about ME and my followers. And it’s worked beautifully for me.

    Let’s show Social Media Examiner staff some common courtesy/respect and stay on topic. This particular post is about SME giving the world an opportunity to nominate their favorite blog.

    In closing this thread on my end, I will give you some unsolicited advice. Please don’t hijack posts like this one, where we have an opportunity (in my case) to thank people we don’t know but who have had a positive impact in our lives. It is very noble of SME to take the time to ask us for our opinions – we’re in control and it’s great.

    I again nominate Donna Moritz, she’s awesome. And thank you Mike Stelzner and Social Media Examiner for allowing me the honor of nominating this incredibly talented woman. (Full disclosure: I don’t personally know and have never spoken to Donna, Mike Stelzner, Social Media Examiner staff or their very talented bloggers. I don’t have the privilege of being a part of their elite circle but I admire them from afar.)

    Happy Holidays y’all and a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!

  • Thanks so much!!

  • I hope you find what you’re looking for, Greg.

    Thank you to Mike and everyone at SME for working so hard to build a resource for bloggers and social media education. I do appreciate all that you do. ?

    I really liked this blog Keralaforward.com that is powered
    by TCCF for the development of Kerala. Just while I was browsing for my thesis
    on Natural gas, I came across this post http://goo.gl/4EIm0F
    in which they have compared natgas with other fossil fuels and that itself is
    so self explanatory. Even the blog has all the necessary details that one needs
    to understand how eco-friendly natgas is. Read it yourself to believe it!

  • Mike Hind

    I am a BIG fan of Mike Stelzner. I have learned a lot by listening to the SMM podcast – it’s one of only 3 podcasts I listen to regularly.

    That said, I find the way everyone falls on Greg, like a pack of hounds, quite similar to the way cult members round on non-believers.

    Opportunity missed, as a result, for what could have been an interesting honest discussion about email marketing. Kudos to Greg for being open about the scale of his own operation. Too bad he came over a bit aggressive with his opening gambit ??

This competition is always a fun way to hear from people that read my content too! I hope you have a fabulous 2016!

  • Thanks Emeric! The feeling is mutual – glad to see you have a few nominations for Agorapulse – it was definitely the stand out for my single vote (because it’s hard to pick for sure with so many great blogs!)

    Secret Bloggers Business has changed the way I blog for my business. Before I discovered Kate (who has a super successful blog Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily- so she KNOWS what she is talking about rather than “experts” who dont have any proven results) I had no plan, no ideas and pretty much no desire to blog. Now Im a content creating machine. Secret Bloggers Business… is the BUSINESS
