A Big Night Out not to forget

 

No-one can imagine how soul-destroying it must be to not have a home.

It’s something many of us take for granted in the 21st Century in the UK.

So, imagine how it feels for those people who, through no fault of their own, are left out in the cold night after night, no shelter, no food and little comfort.

Last year more than 40 brave souls ditched the safety of their homes to stretch out on the streets of Blackpool for Streetlife’s Big Sleep Out.

And on March 31st, Happy’s charity partner for 2017 is looking for volunteers to do the same, so they can experience a life on the streets – for one night only.

The venue for the event will be outside the Night Shelter on St John’s Square, central Blackpool, where supporters of the homeless charity will gather for the night.

Last year’s event raised more than £11,000 for Streetlife and organisers are hoping to eclipse this in 2017 following the launch of the 2020 campaign by Happy last year.

Lindsay Guest, one of the organisers and who is taking part again this year, said: “The Big Sleep Out gives people only a small insight into the struggles people face on the streets. Homelessness isn’t an organised event, it isn’t a lifestyle choice and every day is a constant struggle for those people who find themselves in this situation.

“This is why Streetlife is so important for these people, to provide support when they need it. Last year’s event was great and this year we want it to be bigger.”

Social Media

All the tweets and posts in the world won’t help generate leads unless there’s some strategic thinking behind what you’re doing.

We’ll help define the right social media strategy for you, so that you’re on the right platforms, saying the right things to the right people at the right time to generate the right leads.

Design & Brand Building

Marketing is bit like those huge, swirling flocks of starlings you see from time to time. Individually your brochure, email, ad, meme or gif may not change the world.

But when you join them together and ensure they’re all heading in the same direction, you have the power to stop people in their tracks.

We design communications that help build a consistent brand and convert more leads to sales.

Websites

Your website can generate leads in so many ways. Informed content. Strong calls to action. A simple, natural journey from ‘Hi there!’ to ‘Buy now’.

Yet websites are never ‘done’. They need to keep evolving to keep pace with your customers’ expectations, so we’ll be with you for the long haul to keep tweaking, refining and growing your site – and to deliver the PPC campaigns that help drive traffic towards it.

Because when your website keeps working to understand and speak to your audience, you’ve got more chance of converting.
