    Ethics Online

    Marketing Support

    "...helped us shape our vision."

    Ethics Online produces award winning films for students of Philosophy and Ethics.


    D&B were approached help launch Ethics Online new series of films to support the New A Level Religious Studies curriculum. Historically the business had relied on a mailshot sent in the Autumn term. Digital marketing had had poor results and their social media presence was negligible.


    Working with writers’ and directors, Joe and Nicky, we developed a marketing strategy with clear objectives. Creating a content marketing and monthly calendars plan to drive traffic to website and increase social media activity we looked to significantly increase Ethics Online engagement with customers. We were also able to help with publishing content on their website.


    Now the business has regular monthly planning and delivery of ongoing marketing activities. The regular marketing newsletters sent to customers yield sales and have put Ethics Online products in front of a new, wider audience. Social media activity has increased with engagement, interaction and reach increasing.


    Nicky says 'We're so excited to be working with Amanda who is just as passionate as we are about giving people what they actually need! She's fun and motivated and has really helped us shape our vision of how to get news about our A Level films out to RS teachers. She has good ideas and knows how to make them work with minimum fuss. Cannot recommend her highly enough."

    Marketing and Fundraising support

    “…highly versatile asset to the team.”

    Childhood Cancer Parents Alliance (CCPA) is a small midlands based charity working with families and other organisations to support families whose children have a cancer diagnosis.


    CCPA was looking to build its revenue from fundraising but recognised that its Operations Manager, Rachael, was stretched: working with families, fundraising and trying to grow relationship with businesses and community groups.


    As the charity looked to develop its fundraising, marketing and PR activities Danells and Bewley Consultants offered a flexible, creative and enthusiastic alternative to appointing a new member of staff.


    Amanda now works closely with Rachael developing, planning implementing exciting new fundraising projects such as the ‘Posh Swish’ and the TeamGold running team. We give practical support with running events and campaigns and have been successful in recruiting new donors and volunteers. D&B also supports the charity with digital and traditional media content marketing: managing their social media platforms, writing and publishing newsletters, executing digital email campaigns, as well as the production of traditional printed marketing collateral.


    Abby White, Chair of the Board of Trustees for CCPA says “Amanda has worked extensively with CCPA for a year across a wide range of activities. We initially appointed her to work with Rachael on partnership development and event management for the 2016 Gold Ribbon Ball. Her project management skills, efficiency, insight and dedication led us to expand our collaboration. She has refreshed our tired website, energized our social media communities and other communications, and helped Rachael expand our corporate connections and community fundraising programme. Amanda has excellent communication and teamwork skills. Her broad knowledge and experience make her a highly versatile asset to the team. Her support is invaluable.”

    RE Today & NATRE

    The NATRE Strictly RE Conference 2017

    Increasing both income and exhibitor numbers

    RE Today and NATRE, organisers of Strictly RE 2017 wanted to build on the success of the previous conferences but widen the take up of the exhibitors. In particular, with the changes in the GCSE and ‘A’ Level examinations, NATRE wanted to have all the examination boards represented so delegates could talk directly to exam boards about their concerns. The organisers also wanted include more faith based groups.


    Danells and Bewley worked with RE Today and NATRE to develop the range of different exhibition packages. We set up an email campaign with content covering topics such as speakers, prices, how to market to teachers. Through telephone marketing we built sales and developed relationships with exhibitors.


    We secured 17 exhibitors, increasing both income and exhibitor numbers, including many who had not exhibited or advertised with with RE Today or NATRE before. All the exam boards were represented as the organisers wanted. All the majority faiths were represented in the exhibitor stands giving delegates a much boarder exhibition experience than in pervious years. In addition to this we secured additional advertisers for the conference programmes who did not take an exhibition stand.


    Danells and Bewley are now working with RE Today and NATRE on the 2018 Strictly RE conference again supporting them with exhibition sales.
