Below is a film we produced for the Royal Osteoporosis Society’s legacy fundraising. We set the ball rolling with a visit to the family, and had the films in the can a couple of weeks later.

Jackie tells her story, how the ROS has helped her throughout her journey and why she’s leaving a gift in her will to help the next generation stand tall.

Well, what can I say about Great Appeal apart from that they are indeed Great to work with! They are very efficient, professional and experienced in what they do. They helped us to develop a brief that clearly outlined the objectives of our insert campaign and produced a strong appeal/call to action to be put to the audience. Thanks for your hard work.

Fundraising Manager

My first experiences with Great Appeal revolved around product development for Retention Programmes. On every occasion they’ve delivered, surpassing KPIs and increasing the profile of our programme. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Just to update that the curlew appeal is now our best performing appeal WWT has ever done! Income is still coming in and digital promo still going on. Everyone is chuffed to bits!

Frequently asked questions

How much do you charge?

We price each project or series of projects for you in our initial conversation or follow-up proposal because every job is different. As a guide, though,  for a Direct Mail appeal, and copy and assets for associated landing-page and email, you're not likely to go into double figures unless there are a lot of variants.

Typically, what do your prices include?

Agreement on the brief, first. Then a schedule, interviews with case studies and signatories if needed, three rounds of copy, three rounds of design and your finished product. For printed matter, we’ll liaise with printers, ours or yours and check non-live-lasered proofs. For your digital, we’ll provide the assets.

Can I pick and choose from your services?

Yes you can. Just ask us what you need us to help you with.

How Can I Contact You?

We’re always directly at your disposal by phone, email, Skype, Zoom or whichever your preferred communication platform is.
