We secured 66 pieces of quality media coverage, including national and international pieces with Forbes, Ian King Live on Sky News, City AM, Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, This is Money, Daily Express and Daily Mirror. Our regional data was featured in publications including The Scotsman, Manchester Evening News and Wales Online.
The campaign has also been a launchpad for GoDaddy’s public affairs activity in the UK. More than 20 MPs attended the parliamentary reception, including Small Business Minister, Paul Scully.
