7  Serve the WHPA members and people interested in the WHPA  Content weighted toward WHPA information, rather than the broad world of HVAC and of energy efficiency. Must be a link to the WHPA.  Better to be focused than cover everything. Our stats are great because of that.  70 visits early on; now between 1,200 and 1,500 per month!  Website evolved from just showing docs to minutes & work products, utility programs, pertinent industry news, and more. 7

8  70 visits per month in at the beginning; now between 1,200 and 1,500 visits per month! ◦ Jan. - July 2014 – 9,459 visits  Website evolved from just posting documents to a WHPA information reposition of more than 100 pages with news, popular links, a calendar that is actively accessed ◦ More than 1,000 unique documents  Excellent vehicle for sharing information among interested parties. 8

9 9 One reason for increased website traffic is that Committee and Working Group volunteers use the site to store and reference documents. Because more members and “searchers” visit, the site has become more effective as a tool such as unveiling utility programs, drawing attention to regulatory proceedings, etc.

10  Highest six month website activity ever- 9,459 visits  2:46 average time on site per visit – phenomenal! ◦ 26,000 minutes - total “eyeball” time on site 1H2014  Major project to reorganize and enhance content on all 19 committee and working group pages – completed in June ◦ Clearly IDs Strategic Plan and 2014 SMART Goal linkage  Website is the delivery vehicle for 2014 SMART Goal #5 by Regulatory / Policy Notification Working Group aspx 10

12  Crazy Egg is a Heatmapping tool that shows where people click. It is unbiased data that shows us what’s popular and what isn’t.  The scrollmap gives more visibility to things we want people to see.  Committee and Work Products moved to homepage based on data. 12
