From the beginning, the launch campaign generated extensive media coverage that exceeded all expectations. Crowdrating was featured in the Financial Times, Daily Telegraph, Mail on Sunday, City AM and Forbes, in addition to receiving significant attention elsewhere. The coverage reached 98,423,200 people on launch day and the Telegraph article alone was shared 520 times on social media.
The result of this attention was a strong boost in subscriptions, particularly from the Forbes and City AM publicity. Following the success of the launch campaign, the founders of Crowdrating continued to work with Definition.
“On launch day we were delighted to see that we were achieving one registration a minute after opening the site at noon. That is in very large part due to the efforts of Definition.” – Modwenna Rees-Mogg and Alex Heath, co-founders of Crowdrating.
