Kia ora Nic

 

Thank you for your request regarding our Thankful for Art campaign. Our
response to your two questions is below.

 

1.       Can you please supply a breakdown of what was paid in the
development of your Thankful for Art Campaign, specifically interested in
what went to campaign development/launch/hosting versus payment to the
artists involved?

 

A breakdown is provided below. There were no launch or hosting costs as
the campaign was designed and delivered during the Covid-19 lockdown.

2.       The stats on how many 'shares' of artworks you managed to solicit
via the #TFA tag.

 

Creative New Zealand’s COVID-19 response advocacy awareness campaign
‘Thankful for Art’ (#TFA) sought to communicate the value of the arts to
the public and the sector.

 

#TFA was designed to use social media to build awareness and to reach as
many people as possible. The secondary aim was to invite people to
actively engage with the arts in a variety of ways at home.

 

+------------------------------------------------------------------------+
|Key: |
| |
|Impressions: the number of times the content is displayed |
| |
|Reach: the total number of people who see the content |
| |
|ThruPlay: Facebook term for when a video is played for at least 15 |
|seconds |
+------------------------------------------------------------------------+

 

While a total figure of people who engaged with the campaign is difficult
to note with 100% certainty, as different platforms measure performance
slightly differently, (some only offer impressions rather than ‘reach’ and
Instagram doesn't allow access to reach/impressions data after 7 days)
these are the results available:

 

During the month of the campaign (17 April – 15 May 2020):

•        Facebook: 5.1 million impressions

•        Facebook: 1.2 million reach 

•        Twitter: 553,100 impressions 

•        Impressions for #TFA campaign video alone

o   984,559 YouTube

o   454,267 Twitter

 

#TFA

•        #TFA was used approximately 3000 times throughout the duration of
the campaign.

•        #TFA is not a unique hashtag which makes it more difficult to
easily identify our campaign posts and hard to measure.

 

Campaign video

•        Optimised for ThruPlay views (awareness raising) rather than
engagement (which was achieved via social shares, prompts and artist
commissions).

•        1.2 million Facebook ThruPlays.

 

Public prompts and sector shares

•        Designed to drive deeper engagement, prompting people to share or
do something, and use the #TFA hashtag.
