What We’re Tracking: EngagePhase Weekly at Seven Weeks

EngagePhase Weekly: Content Items per Issue
EngagePhase Weekly: Content Items per Issue

We’re about seven weeks into publishing EngagePhase Weekly: time to take a first look at which topic areas the newsletter is covering. A few main categories have emerged so far:

  • News & Current Events
    • Happening This Week
    • Coming Up Next Week
    • Industry News
    • People on the Move
    • Competitions & Awards
  • Resources
    • Tools & Resources
    • Research
    • Books
    • Digital Engagement
    • Thought Leadership
  • Professional Development
  • Job Openings
  • Event Calendar (Conferences)

As you can see on the chart above, things are generally moving up and to the right (as they should).

On the backend, we’re setting up a system that will allow us to monitor and process a large number of relevant international news sources of all kinds: from blogs, to Twitter hashtag feeds, to email newsletters, to podcasts – you name it! Currently, we follow only a few dozen sources (in fact, most of the items that make it into the newsletter each week still come from sources we aren’t formally tracking yet). We expect that number to grow quickly, however, to several hundred sources or more over the coming weeks and months.

This increasingly complete tracking effort will allow EngagePhase Weekly to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date view of the emerging global community engagement and public participation industry.

How to join

EngagePhase Weekly is currently in closed beta. We’re slowly adding a few new people to the list every week, still free of charge. If you’re interested, please add your name to the growing waiting list. The current wait time is about two weeks.

Or, you can skip the line and go straight for one of the paid plans (and help us fine-tune our payment system while you’re at it).
