And that’s exactly what we’ve been doing here in the MoneyPlus Features team, reflecting on the year past so we can focus our efforts in the year ahead.
It’s a great opportunity for us to make sure we’re delivering the material you want.
Your opinion counts
By reviewing which articles were popular and also analysing the feedback we’ve received, we can gain some great insight into the sort of topics that really matter to you and then we can plan accordingly.
