 A few things to highlight:
o Social Media
LinkedIn continues to be our fastest growing platform with a jump in followers of 51.7 percent year-over-year. It is also generating our highest engagement. Our post from the LTN event generated 1,362 impressions and 89 engagements. Our Instagram following is growing fast—up 30.9% from last month. Our SBESC channels are remaining level and in the case of Twitter, fell slightly. If the goal is audience growth, a possible shift in strategy and resource devotion should be considered.
o Earned Media
We had strong media success with the LTN launch event, which generated seven high-quality, high relevance media placements in local publications, including a front-page story in the Daily Breeze.
o E-Mail Marketing
The SBESC monthly newsletter continues to be top-performing e-blast, although our “opens” and “engagements” this month seem to be down overall for all emails, perhaps due to the holidays.
