Common Mistakes Content Marketers Make samaz 13 29 daysRev (3697): @samaz Beware of numbers for numbers' sake and of spending too much (all?) of your time in analytics. Yes, you must always know where you are on your journey of success in relation to your goals -- otherwise you are simply lost -- but if you spend too much time on analytics as opposed to actually working, you will find yourself analyzing nothing. Numbers are seductive and we tend to try to find order in chaos. Measure what really matters,...
