Fine & Country News Page

News from the Media Centre


April was a successful month for the Media Centre, with the highest EAV and number of mentions in national publications in 2016. Online coverage is also the best is has ever been, thanks to the use of new online portals to distribute the news. Social media also continues to be strong. Facebook received a total of 116 new likes, bringing the total number of likes to 4,736. Twitter followers increased by 264, taking the number of followers to 6,980. The Fine & Country blog had a total of 11,475 views in April.


Competitions have been very successful on social media. The cake competition and A Place in the Sun competition have increased brand awareness and interactions with our customers. The current competition is the Garden Competition which was launched on 1st May. Make sure you are sharing, liking it, tweeting it and any social media activities you can think of!



Compared to last month, the EAV (Equivalent Advertising Value) increased to &489,603. Fine & Country were mentioned 43 times in the papers, which is our best so far in 2016. Fine & Country was featured six times in The Financial Times and nine times in The Times amongst others.



Circulation remains the same as last month 18,376,630. This is due to coverage being received in media with smaller circulation figures than usual (i.e. The Times has a circulation of 396,621 compared to The Sunday Times' 762,939).





It has been our best month for online coverage for the past year. This is due to utilising new portals to distribute articles, resulting in coverage in the Mail Online, The Metro and other international websites such as The New York Times.
