“Empower has been really great at listening to us about what we are doing through the weekly updates and then reflecting back the opportunities for us to bring digital activities into what we are doing. A lot of these suggestions are areas we probably would have missed without your insight.”
– Hannah Winter, Content and Insights Manager
About MindForward Alliance
The MindForward Alliance is a not-for-profit membership organisation working to create mentally healthy workplaces and inspire health creation in workplaces across the UK and globally
Their unique model brings together senior business leaders, HR, wellbeing and D&I professionals from its members, along with mental health experts, people with lived experience and industry partners.
By collaborating and sharing knowledge of what does and doesn’t work, supported by expert consultancy and practical support at both the operational and leadership level, members are able to accelerate their journey to building a mentally healthy workplace.
The MindForward Alliance team approached Empower to help them increase membership numbers and the number of target audiences accessing MindForward Alliance’s services by providing ongoing digital support.
Areas of focus included:
- Strategic advice
- Paid advertising
- Social media management
- Creative optimisation
- Stakeholder engagement
Our focus was not only to make sure that solid digital best practice was put in place and actively managed, but also to develop repeatable processes that follow best practice guidelines, allowing for the MindForward Alliance team to manage their own digital comms activity over time.
Developing these processes has been key to giving the MindForward Alliance team the confidence, clarity and knowledge to excel at digital comms.
Empower initially performed a digital marketing audit of the MindForward Alliance website and provided recommendations on how to improve the user journey, allowing the MindForward Alliance team to see how effective each stage of the journey was.
In addition, we assessed MindForward Alliance’s other online channels and created a digital marketing strategy, focussing on the optimisation of present digital marketing efforts and the development of measurable tactics.
Once digital foundations were in place, activity evolved based on what worked for each campaign and event launch, leading to improvements that compounded over time.
Establishing measurement of downloads and form submissions on the website and regular performance reports have allowed more meaningful impact measurement to take place.
Over the 12 months Empower has worked with MindForward Alliance, performance has increased across almost all key metrics, including:
- 42% increase in traffic to the MindForward Alliance website year on year
- The Parents Toolkit was MindForward Alliance’s most successful launch to date, with over 1,400 launch event registrations, 800 event attendees, over 6,000 page views of the landing page and over 2,000 downloads at a conversion rate of 35%.
- 46% increase in Twitter impressions, compared to the year before.
- 30% increase in LinkedIn followers.
- 126% increase in email newsletter subscribers.
