Driving Engagement

Engagement with community is currently next to non-existent due to a lack of understanding about HOW it works, WHAT it does and WHY members should use it.

These questions will be addressed in a campaign featuring banners throughout the site.

The community will be marketed on site through banners, in email, on our social media, with SEO (internal linking) and with PPC.  Signing up will be incentivised with Fundraising Credits.  Specific targeted topical groups will be created and marketed in the same way.

The site will be promoted initially to volunteers internally who will be encouraged to utilise the features of the community and update their profiles.  The goal being to create a content rich community that new members will want to engage with.
