Bite-sized Learning: Direct marketing that works for local charities


It’s tough to know how to drive interest in your local charity. People feel like they’re being constantly asked for money and time, so how do you get their attention when everyone else wants it too?


This session, designed specifically for Brighton & Hove charities, will show you exactly what works and how to drive the results you need.


Where? The 1st Central County Ground, Eaton Road, Hove, BN3 3AN


When? Tuesday 15 January, 4-6pm


Who for? People working for Brighton & Hove based charities, involved in fundraising, direct marketing, individual giving and legacies.


Who by? Christopher Nield, Creative Director, On Agency - a leading charity marketing agency. It focuses on behavioural fundraising, combining data, strategic planning and cutting-edge insights from the developing field of behavioural economics. Christopher joined the agency in 2011 and now leads it, having won numerous awards and accounts with big names like the British Red Cross, Shelter and WaterAid.


Done well, direct marketing is exceptionally effective for local charities. It allows you to target the people who are most likely to care and keep them interested for months and years to come. 


But it can feel like a long slog. How do you develop a compelling proposition that drives all your marketing activity? How do you use this proposition to create a locally-targeted door drop which really works?


In this session, you’ll work alongside other local charities to learn how to create a proposition that works for your charity; all guided by On Agency, who have created propositions for some of the UK’s biggest charities (and lots of smaller ones too).


You’ll learn how to create targeted door drops, coming away with some simple techniques which can dramatically improve your results.


This is your opportunity to really crack your fundraising. Book your place today!
