  • thanks I'll take a look - I had to stick it here to fileshare it with NIna.
    Hopefully it will make sense to the assembled crowd at the IAB tomorrow.

  • Nice one Katie! Looks an interesting case study and a great example of how to apply the IAB framework in real life.

    My one suggestion - if I could be so bold - would be to apportion the final results on page 27 into the '4 As'. So for example which of these results can you group together to indicate the Awareness of your community? Likewise, which of these KPIs represent how engaged they are with this community (Appreciation)? Are there any others you could use to dramatise engagement eg how many fans signed up, how many comments were posted, frequency of posts, discussion threads created, videos viewed etc.

    Hope that helps.
