I wanted to take time out to say a massive thankyou to every single person that likes, shares and comments on my social media posts. Whilst you may think nothing of doing this, you are actually playing a huge and vital role in my campaign work to end homelessness. For the last year or so I've worked with one of the top social media marketing experts in the world who (on a pro bono basis, as a corporate sponsor of the project) has helped me to understand the importance of social media in marketing and movement building for business today.
We track my campaign and reach across platforms and as you can see below, in terms of expertise and engagement on issues surrounding homelessness, I rank at number 3 globally, right after national charities Crisis and Shelter. Insanity I know! This is all thanks to you engaging with my posts.
So thankyou thankyou thankyou! These social media analytics play a huge part in me securing the trust of the organisations with which I aim to work and I would say social media has been the backbone of my campaign work to date.The reach I have amazes me as each day I watch news of what I'm doing spreading across the globe. Thankyou for helping me to get the message out there! Together we can and we will end homelessness.
