PREVIOUS JUDGES COMMENTS

"With 3,905 followers on twitter, 6,217 likes on Facebook, 142,000 views on YouTube and 4,326 followers on Linked In, social media now accounts for 20% of new members. All for a monthly budget of £250-£400."

"The club has its own TV station, YouTube and an App which relays minute by minute match action. Fans can interact during matches as well as commenting on twitter and Facebook. Business is up by 10% year on year since the club started social media seven years ago."

"The club doesn’t budget for social media, focusing instead on contra deals and high quality posts (one Facebook posting attracted 20,000 people).  Membership has risen from 2,000 to 5,000 in 12 months thanks to a targeted social media strategy."

"All players are actively involved in receiving basic social media training, and on match days the club live-tweets the game. Social media is renewing old members, drawing in new ones and increasing merchandise sales."

"The London restaurant now achieves 25% impression rates on Facebook and last summer witnessed a 25% increase in sales. Social media promotes events and handles bookings while a prominent Facebook counter triggers guests to like them. At each new like the numbers change."

"After a strategy designed to increase sales and online bookings (as well creating a community feel) twitter followers have increased by 108% and retweets by 404%.  Facebook likes have increased by 153% and the pub’s viral reach has increased by 735%."

"Using pretty much the whole social media armoury this hotel reaches out with Instagram (6,269 followers), google+, Facebook (15,000 followers), twitter (9,428 followers) and YouTube (reaching over 16,000 views). Regular blogging, Pin interest (232 followers) and a creatively designed website are all part of the impressive social media mix."
