2020 Strategy Finalist
Griffin Farley's Beautiful Minds Workshop: Good Call Newyork
Good Call designed its services to offer free legal service to people who are wrongfully arrested due to systemic injustices. To scale, they needed to raise 1M in donations in 2021 as well as raise awareness.
Campaign design; Inspired by the stories of the everyday arrests, we designed a campaign with an Instagram stunt to put a spotlight on the everyday relatable things and attached costs to them as what is lost from staying in jail longer without legal representation.
Projected results; The influencers reach more than 7million worth of reach. We decided to tap into micro donors who are likely to pay $5, and with a conversion rate of 2.55% on influencer marketing, we projected
to raise close to $890,000 in one-off donations.
