You wouldn’t do this with your…

With Fran's help we've just completed our most successful digital membership campaign ever here at Sussex Wildlife Trust. Everyone here who has worked on the campaign with her has been impressed with her in-depth understanding of digital fundraising and the unique needs of charities. I would recommend her to any charity looking to develop their digital approach.

We started with a very low baseline of knowledge and skills in digital and Fran worked with us to create a comprehensive plan on how to implement the building blocks of digital fundraising in-house. She also gave us bite-sized learning sessions to up-skill us which was invaluable. Fran is knowledgeable, approachable, efficient, extremely capable and a thoroughly nice person – she did exactly what was asked of her and more – thank you Fran.

As a small organisation with limited digital expertise, we had been looking for a digital consultant to help us carry out a full audit of our digital marketing activity and help us establish a data-driven strategy. Fran met the bill perfectly. Taking the time to really understand Womankind’s unique opportunities and challenges, and taking into account our limitations around resource and capacity, Fran worked with the communications and fundraising teams to develop an achievable three-year digital marketing strategy and implementation plan giving us clear and manageable goals. Fran was in close contact throughout the project and always on hand to answer any queries as they arose - she has been a real pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to any other organisations looking for support with their digital marketing.

I worked with Fran on a pilot to trial using digital advertising to promote non-product-led community fundraising. This was a brand new avenue for us, so it was important for us to work with someone who would help us get not just the best results but the most valuable learnings from the activity, to allow us to do more of this work in-house in the future. Fran was an absolute joy to work with. Her huge knowledge, attention to detail and project management were second-to-none and she went out of her way to understand our requirements and tailor her approach accordingly. The project itself went very smoothly and generated some good results; and the level of reporting and insight Fran provided has left us in a great position to pick up on this work ourselves. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again, and hope I get the chance to do so.

Fran was great to work with - she worked quickly to understand our brief and create compelling advertising for us on the basis of market research, on really challenging timescales. Her sharing of info and reporting was also great. Thank you Fran!

Fran was an absolute joy to work with and she could not have been more accommodating of our organisation's needs. We needed assistance with our PPC campaigns, to which she brought a superb level of expertise that she delivered in an engaging and easy to understand manner. I would recommend her every day of the week!
