The Eastern Regional Organization for Public Administration (EROPA) website was given a major overhaul last January 23. It has been one month ever since, and most of the pages have been updated for you to check out.
In the past month alone, average weekly views increased by 55 percent from January 2017 and an overwhelming 128 percent from December 2016. As if this is not adequate, it is estimated that within the year, up to 25,000 views would be recorded by this site from January 2017. Within the same time period, people from at least 95 nations around the world accessed the site (up from the last count of 60). Seven of the ten largest audience sources were Asia-Pacific nations.
Social media is also being utilized by EROPA to complement the renovation of the main website. Monthly social media reach in February represented a 127 percent increase from January 2017, and an astronomical 1,365 percent increase from December 2016. It is projected that for this year, up to 75,000 people will be reached by EROPA's social media outlets. You can follow our Facebook and Twitter profiles, as well as subscribe to our Youtube channel, which are easily accessible in this site.
When this project was began, these numbers are inconceivable, yet all prior estimates were exceeded. Nevertheless, it is with you that we have achieved this success. It is fervently hoped that all of you would remain working with us in the weeks and months leading to the annual conference. Let us keep the pace together.
As always, we are working towards better service for you. Kindly take time to answer our website experience survey in the main page to show us your appreciation and work on areas wherein we can improve our online services.
