With decades of experience and great creative firepower, we’ll bring you campaigns that are motivating, market-aware and highly engaging.
Whether your goal is boosting vital donations, raising brand awareness or securing signatures, we help you unlock the power of precision to get results.
Find and inspire
Planning is vital. It’s the reason we have two companies dedicated to learning about your brand, your supporters and the wider world, so we always plan armed with insight and confidence.
Catalyst Research starts by getting under the skin of your target audience and making sure research findings inform your entire strategy.
Catalyst Insight will then find the nuggets lurking in your data that show you the way forward.
We’ll evaluate the results, providing you with intelligent and reliable data that translates into a clear, actionable plan that firmly shapes everything from creative to media selection.
And when campaigns go live, managing the media will be a dynamic process. A virtuous circle that involves monitoring and analysing results, while tweaking platforms and messaging, maximising the response you get for your campaign.
Even in the more traditional world of print, we use inventive formats that involve people and are more likely to inspire engagement.
An agency without a strong strategic planning ethos is an agency without a soul – you can trust us to make your strategy sing.
