Global Cool uses several online channels to communicate with our audience: the Global Cool website, our weekly email newsletter, social media (mainly Facebook, Twitter and You Tube) and the Global Cool Foundation website. As with all our work, we rigorously measure the performance of our online activity, both on a month by month and on a campaign by campaign basis.
Since relaunching our website last June (with the focus on it acting as a hub for all of the channes listed above) we have seen significant growth in our online reach across all channels. The number of unique users coming to globalcool.org and page impressions have trebled in the last eight months. We have also seen a trebling of our audience on Twitter too, with the launch of three new accounts: @Traincation, @BooksInPublic and @GlobalCoolFDN. Our total online reach across all channels was 72,357 in February 2011, up from 37,883 in July 2010.
Increasing our online reach was one of our major goals this time last year, but we recognise that it’s not just about hitting as many people as possible. It’s also extremely important to engage those people with our campaigns and key messages in order to achieve our overall goal – geting people to take up green behaviours in order to prevent climate change.
In addition to reach we also closely monitor a series of affinity measures (mainly different types of interaction across the various channels we use) in order to assess how receptive the public is to our campaign messaging. These include both positive and negative interaction, and we’re delighted that whilst 12% of our audience across all channels are demonstrating positive sentiment towards our campaigns, less than 1% are showing negative sentiment.
