We’re A Strategic Digital Agency For Beyond Profits.
We have a full range of services and join in at any stage of your digital evolution. We tackle everything from total digital transformations to campaign-specific projects.
The way people connect is always changing. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up. For beyond-profit organisations, access to the latest technology is even harder. No two charities are the same; each will have their own specific set of challenges, with often limited resources.
This is where we come in.
We Turn Complexity
Complex, inappropriate technology causes disjointed user experiences, compliance risks, time-consuming data management, internal usage frustrations, and wasted expense – diminishing the ability of beyond profits to reach their goals.
What Are You Looking For?
What We Do.
We have extensive experience implementing and optimising all major CRMs, particularly Salesforce, from integration to automation and reporting.
We bring our designs to life with intelligent, integrated websites, community portals and campaign microsites.
We design and engineer engaging email marketing campaigns and automated supporter journeys.
We design inspiring persona-driven digital experiences, content and campaigns.
We help you to understand and optimise your SEO, Adwords and banner ads.
Social Media Marketing.
We start with great creative, content and community management, and amplify through targeted, continually optimised ad campaigns.
Our multi-channel campaign dashboards track your digital and social media marketing performance so you can improve supporter journeys in real time.
Our experts work with leaders and practitioners to audit, engineer and improve GDPR and PECR policies, processes and systems

What People Say About Us.
Don’t take our word for it, here’s what some of our partners have to say.
ABF The Soldiers’ Charity
“We used Salesforce to connect ABF’s WordPress account and Facebook lead ads directly which saved 20 days of time managing data over the course of the campaign. This gave supporters who signed up a seamless onboarding journey.”
“Lightful has worked with us to refine our vision, design our Salesforce-based solution and our member portal interface. Our goal is to enable our members to be a part of this collaborative forum by curating and nurturing a community within this member portal. Lightful’s insight, scoping and project design has helped us move closer to our vision.”
School for Social Entrepreneurs
“Lightful worked with the School for Social Entrepreneurs to scope, design and implement our Salesforce community supporting our network of entrepreneurs and schools. The Lightful team are an experienced team of professionals with understanding of social enterprise, business requirements and design.”
