Our seventh year in business was the busiest yet for the ZimmComm team. We spent a total of 172 days on the road – traveling from Seattle to Orlando, San Antonio to Atlanta, Dallas to Louisville, Mexico to Memphis, Anaheim to Miami, the Netherlands to the Carolinas, Denver to Panama City Beach, St. Paul to Savannah, Lexington to Lancaster – and lots of trips to Chicago, Des Moines, Kansas City and St. Louis.
It’s kind of mind boggling to count the number of posts we do in a year – just on Agwired and Domestic Fuel there was over 3,000! The number of audio files posted on all websites totaled over 1,000. We posted nearly 16,000 photos on Flickr from about 60 different events and posted 103 videos on YouTube. Can’t even begin to count the total number of tweets on Twitter!
Traffic on all of our websites increased in 2010. Agwired was up 17% to 185,000 unique visitors; Domestic Fuel was also up 17% with 315,000 unique visitors; Precision Pays traffic increased by 66% to 48,000; and World Dairy Diary was up 35 percent to over 98,000.
The most popular YouTube video of the year was the unveiling of the Chip Foose designed John Deere tractor at Commodity Classic, which has been viewed nearly 13,000 times. Videos from the John Deere XUV media event were viewed over 5,000 times. Other top videos of the year including the unveiling of the New Holland T8 & T9 Tractors, Opening Day at National Farm Machinery Show, AG CONNECT Expo Preview, General Motors Exec at the National Ethanol Conference, President Obama at the POET plant, AgLeader at AG CONNECT, Kip Cullers New Record, and the fly-by at the National Agricultural Aviation Association meeting.
Our wonderful clients make every day of every year a pleasure to do what we do. Those clients are not a bunch of corporate names – they are people we are proud to call friends. They are John and Whitney, Bob and Matt, Pat and Sandi, Barry and Kelly and Leigh Ann, Gene and Dawn, and Rich and Mike and Jeff and Dan and Jeremy and Jill and Andrew and Ken and Rita and Jessica and Joe and Joy and Chris and Stephanie and Jerry and Erika and Mindy and Janell and Curt and Mace and Billy and Mark …. just to name a few! We sincerely appreciate you all and look forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come. We also sincerely appreciate our wonderful freelance team of Joanna, John, Melissa, Michelle, Lisa, Kurt, Robert and JoDene – our super sales guy Dave – and our daughters Chelsea and Carly, who both helped out with the business in 2010.
Best wishes to all for a healthy, happy, prosperous and blessed new year!
