As the middle market expanded in 2014, so did the Mergers & Acquisitions brand. We are celebrating significant growth over the last year: the audience for our website, www.TheMiddleMarket.com, increased 60 percent for a monthly average of more than 42,000 visitors. The audience for our daily and weekly e-newsletters increased 63 percent to more than 27,000 subscribers. Our monthly print magazine audience grew 8 percent to nearly 20,000 subscribers. Capping it all off, in December, we reached an important social media milestone when we hit 10,000 followers of our Twitter account @TheMiddleMarket.
Our brand's growth represents a collaboration of many people from all over SourceMedia.
