To mark the Half Year Review published today on Place, we wanted to update you on our own performance. Place's readership has more than doubled since the start of the year.
In January the number of unique visitors to the website was 13,781. As of this morning, the monthly readership – for 28 June to 28 July – shows 29,827, a rise of 116%.
Place is now by far and away the best read property publication among the people who count in the North West.
Since we introduced the daily newsletter and went to a free model in September 2009 the daily newsletter has established itself as a unique package of stories with breadth of subject and geography unmatched by our rivals regionally or nationally. During the first half of 2010 Place also ran a series of events and produced features tailored to topics affecting the regeneration community: Low Carbon Forum and Green Week; Place on Tour week during March; the Cheshire West & North Wales Property Forum in May; CVA briefing; Retail Development Update to name a few. There are more to come with a packed schedule for the autumn and New Year.
