Improving literacy rates across Norfolk
The Norfolk Reading Project is a super local charity aimed at supporting teachers to improve literacy standards across Norfolk.
To do this, they rely solely on volunteers to give up their time visiting schools to work closely with children on their reading and literacy skills.
The challenge was to help recruit more volunteers following the COVID-19 pandemic.
We love supporting charities, especially local ones, and we saw a big opportunity to help support them with a paid social ad campaign to drive volunteers to sign up.
The Norfolk Reading Project needed to engage with a group of individuals who were most likely retired or semi-retired and able to give us some of their spare time to help the charity.
Given the demographic of the target audience we felt Facebook advertising would be perfect for the charity. We were able to set up Facebook ads to target -
• Geographical Radius
Setting up specific targeting was really important to help reduce the budget, as there was only £200 worth of ad budget to spend on the campaign.
Having agreed the budget, we designed the visual for the ads to capture attention and drive traffic to the website.
We then set up the adverts to run over a two week period with a budget of £200.
In fact the ad campaign was so successful we had to pause it before the end of the £200 spend to allow the team to cope with the number of enquiries they had received.
