We just finished up an exciting research project:
First we sorted through millions of emails that we sent our subscribers in 2016.
Then we calculated how many people opened each of our articles, and how many people clicked on the links inside.
In this way, we were able to analyze the specific topics that you and our other readers find most valuable.
So, without further ado, I’ll now present the list of the Five Most Popular (and very likely, the Five Most Valuable) articles that we published in 2016.
If you’re a recent subscriber to Crowdability, this will give you a quick, easy way to get up to speed on the private stock market…
And if you’re a long-time reader, I hope it’ll provide you with an entertaining year-end “refresher”!
