Building a marketing & recruitment funnel for Birmingham Samaritans.
The organisation is completely dependent on volunteers. As such, it’s important for them to have marketing systems in place that consistently deliver a steady stream of the right type of volunteer applicants.
They approached us to help with a recruitment campaign for their Birmingham center.
The primary target audience for this campaign were people approaching retirement/recently retired. This formed the basis of our creative approach.
Newly retirees have been given the gift of time and will be contemplating what they can do now they don’t have to work.
A shift at the Samaritans is four hours. The creative concept looked to explore this connection.
We took a lighter look at three things you cannot do in four hours, before segueing into the main message of the short ad.
Some things you can’t do in four hours, however, volunteering just four hours a month with the Samaritans can make a real difference in people’s lives.
This approach created an interesting juxtaposition for the audience giving greater gravitas to the profound end key message.
At the bottom of the funnel we produced three final videos, these were direct calls to action, asking the prospect to apply to be a volunteer. The were served to the target audience who had watched both the awareness and consideration videos.
