Reinforcing its position as Gloucestershire's leading media brand, SoGlos's audience reach has hit its highest levels since launching in the county almost 16 years ago.
During the 30-day period from 20 March 2023, more than 179,000 readers flocked to soglos.com to be inspired by the online magazine's wealth of professionally-written content; social media followers hit 89,000 across SoGlos's Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter channels; while 28,000 subscribers received SoGlos's carefully-curated weekly Lifestyle and Business newsletters - taking its total monthly audience to a new 296,000 high.
The growing audience reach follows the significant £250,000 investment in a project to set the standard for the future of UK regional media from here in Gloucestershire, which involved a brand-new SoGlos website and bespoke 'SoCMS' back office content management system launch in the summer of 2022.
Launched by two Gloucestershire journalists on a mission to revolutionise regional media, SoGlos has gown to now be powered by Gloucestershire's largest and most experienced media team, who are unwaveringly passionate about inspiring our audience and helping our partners' businesses thrive.
'Our new record-breaking audience reach is a testament to the whole team's hard work in providing our readers with engaging content of a quality they won't find anywhere else in the county - coupled with industry-leading tech to provide an unparalleled user experience they won't find anywhere else in the UK,' commented SoGlos co-founder, Michelle Fyrne.
The SoGlos brand also extends to include Gloucestershire's two leading annual awards, the SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards, now in its sixth year and set to be held at Dunkertons Organic Cider in 2023, and the SoGlos Gloucestershire Business Awards, now in its third year and set to be held at Gloucester South Community Fire and Rescue Station in 2023.
In addition to the popular printed Gloucestershire Bucket List and Gloucestershire Family Bucket List - beautifully designed and hand-illustrated A2 guides providing readers with a definitive collection of 100 things to do in the county, and supported by digital versions.
'Our decade and a half of success has, of course, only been made possible thanks to the support of our readers and partners, and we have more exciting developments on the horizon for both,' Fyrne hinted.
'We'd encourage readers to consider becoming a SoGlos member to be first to hear about these new developments, while partners will be treated to something extremely exciting too - the result of another innovative tech project we've been busy developing - which will be revealed in less than a month.'
