Charity Marketing: social enterprise and community action

charity marketing and social enterprise

The Island digital marketing agency became involved in community projects inside their own communities. This has provided us with invaluable knowledge on charity marketing.

This, we believe, gives us a real and fresh perspective on the needs of all stakeholders including community groups, councils, businesses and residents. From creating pop up units and arranging events, to park regeneration bids, business websites and social media planning for High Streets.

Wembley: Local business support

The Island are working in partnership with Meanwhile Space and Brent Council to help three local companies to improve their business.

We have taken a very one-to-one approach and built up good relationships with the owners who have all grown in positivity and seeing real returns for their personal investment.

Our work included:

  • Business and social planning
  • Brand design and development
  • Shop design and POS
  • Website build
  • Photography
  • Campaign creation
  • Product purchasing

Oxfam: Global Campaign: The Orb

charity marketing for oxfam
Oxfam work on local issues on a global scale. When you work at such a massive level, it becomes very easy for people to perceive you as having lost focus on what THEY believe should be your remit.

We created a new content managed and fully interactive web tool called The Orb.

This allowed every single campaign around the globe from Oxfam to be housed in one area, with a related design, and made it easier for people to find campaigns around the world which match their own passions.

Irish Youth Foundation: Brand, social & website

charity marketing for irish youth

The Irish Youth Foundation work with young irish people who are now based in England.

Our work was to truly understand the needs of these kids and create a brand and website which could share their stories in a sympathetic manner but also drive people to invest their time in helping them, or provide funds to support IYF projects.

I am thrilled that we chose The Island for our re-brand and new website. They have an amazing ability to understand a vision and then surpass expectation with it. Their knowledge and expertise for what they do is mind boggling and I would highly recommend The Island to anyone.
