Initial Projects

Since launching in April we have been busy working with a number or charities and businesses to deliver high social media campaigns at affordable prices. Below is a quick summary of a couple exciting projects we have been involved in.

Living Street: The Great British Walking Challenge

Working closely with the Living Streets team, we embarked on a challenge to get Britain walking during the month of May. We teamed up with a wide range of bloggers including, green, parent and hyper local to achieve widespread coverage. Our social story for the campaign was a massive success seeing a huge increase in mentions and followers throughout the month. We used a range of tactics including organising a blogger event, blogger outreach and designing creative social media challenges including our #mumswalk Pinterest challenge and foot scrub competition thanks to our friends at Lush LTD. To get a flavour of the campaign check out this  Storify.

The campaign has been acknowledged as being a success throughout the charity sector. Rob Dyson of Whizz Kidz mentioned the campaigns use social media during his talk at #nfptweetup and the campaign website has been shortlisted for a Third Sector Excellence Award.

We will be working on a new campaign with Living Streets this summer so keep your eyes peeled.

CDI Europe: Apps for Good Awards 2012

We all know that organising events can be stressful and social media can be one of the things which slips through the cracks. We were delighted to be asked to help ensure the smooth running of social media from the CDI Europe Apps For Good Awards 2012. Both of us were totally blown away by the quality of the proposed apps put forward by the 12 to 14 year olds. The 7 winners are all getting their apps built, so a oyster card app for your smart phone and a app which makes parents keep their promises are all coming your way soon. Check out this Storify of the action on the day.
