From time to time we use this space to talk about ourselves, and this week we can share some new statistics on our audience growth. Firstly, we are rapidly approaching 55,000 subscribers globally. Our website, meanwhile, has passed another milestone, with over 10 million page views in the last month.
Forklift end-users (including fleet managers) remain our largest audience segment (42%), ahead of dealers (36%) and manufacturers (19%). In fact, there’s been a subtle shift, with more end-users reading the newsletter - and a slightly smaller proportion of dealers.
Watch this space for our next achievement and details of our changing demographics.
