Brighton children’s’ charity awarded £25k digital marketing fund

SiteVisibility, the leading digital marketing agency, can today announce that its £25k ‘Community Digital Marketing Fund’ has been awarded to Brighton-based child care charity, Extratime. The fund, which was available to all charities and not-for-profit organisations across Sussex, will enable Extratime to improve its online reputation and profile, increase online donations and help the charity’s promotional efforts become more effective and self-sustaining into the future. The fund will also help create employment opportunities for the young people who work with Extratime.

More than 25 charities and not-for-profit organisations submitted applications for the Fund via SiteVisibility’s Facebook page telling the company about their work in the local community and what they will achieve with extra digital marketing guidance and advice. Following a review of all applicants to identify which has the potential to achieve the biggest impact with £25k worth of digital marketing investment, Extratime was selected as the stand-out charity.

Extratime was founded by Becky Jenner and Marian Tipler, both parents of children with complex needs. Frustrated at the lack of out-of-school care for their own children, Becky and Marian spent two years planning and working voluntarily to develop an inclusive after school club for special needs and mainstream children aged 5 – 16.

Jason Woodford, SiteVisibility CEO comments: “We launched the SiteVisibility 'Community Digital Marketing Fund' because our number 1 CSR objective is to use our skills to help create employment opportunities in the communities where we operate.”

"Extratime’s entry into our 'Community Digital Marketing Fund' displayed a measurable revenue generation objective which would continue to support children with special needs. Their approach has been highly professional and our whole team is committed to making their own individual contributions as part of a 12 month campaign with Extratime.

"I would like to thank all charities and not-for-profit organisations for taking the time to enter and I wish them all the very best as they look to fulfil their objectives for 2013. One of the needs most frequently highlighted by charities was social media training and so during 2013 we will be providing a free training session for all applicants which will hopefully help them improve their online communication skills and effectiveness.”

Becky Jenner of Extratime comments: “We are thrilled to have been chosen by SiteVisibility to receive its Community Digital Marketing Fund. These additional services mean we can raise further awareness of our aims and objectives through digital channels and crucially, look to increase donations to the charity in our 10th anniversary year.”
