October 20, 2014 was the most traffic-heavy date Wax Times has yet to see. After publishing an article advising you of how to insure your collection, the story quickly gained traction from a number of secondary media channels and the hits are still coming in today. For a story that was partially an exercise in securing my own property and sharing that experience, the surprising success of the article was never expected.
Social media has been a major component to our growth and we plan on continuing to publish content through our Facebook and Twitter feeds in order to allow conversation and meaningful engagement to occur. Keep sharing and we’ll keep publishing.
