This Girl Can (TGC) launched ‘Me Again’ in January 2020, a campaign that breaks down barriers to women getting active and tackles new taboos like motherhood, menstruation and menopause.
The high-profile ad campaign and event hosted by Clare Balding launched with a confident soundtrack by Little Simz. A customised Activity Finder turned inspiration into action, with tailored recommendations for each user.
Then COVID-19 hit. This Girl Can had to respond, fast.
Our digital partner Cyber-Duck reworked the Activity Finder to promote home-friendly activities, pivoted the TGC community, and we launched a £10million community fund for groups who help women get active locally.
In the autumn, we launched Sistagram to sustain the conversation about keeping active during lockdown.
The results were unprecedented:
• Launch ad: 1 million views across social media in 48 hours
• 312 pieces of organic media coverage including The One Show
• 85% of all women in England aged 20-60 reached via organic and paid media
• 10,000 extra women attended parkrun for International Women’s Day – including 1,300 first-timers
• Seven weeks after launch, three in 10 women reported getting active due to the ‘Me Again’ campaign
We ended the year with the highest TGC brand awareness we’ve ever had.
