Be part of something bigger

The average person sees 6,000-10,000 ads each day.

However much you care, however driven you are, it’s tough to get noticed in today’s media-saturated world. Factor in budget constraints or internal politics, and you’re fighting an uphill battle.

So, how do you get the attention your cause deserves? By harnessing the power of data.

Make film and video content that really works

We founded Megaphone Creative to help organisations like yours use their money effectively. To create content that gets seen and acted on by the people who matter. We start by analysing your audience and base the campaign strategy on what we learn.

That might mean creating a four-minute film for YouTube shot in 4K, or a series of TikTok videos recorded on mobile phones. Whatever the audience is most likely to engage with, that’s what determines our approach.

Once your campaign launches, we monitor it carefully to make sure you’re getting maximum impact. Once it’s complete, we give you a breakdown of the results and what we’ve learned during our partnership. Finally, we make suggestions about where to focus your resources to keep the momentum going.

Lead the way to positive change

You’re here because you want to do something about the imbalances in society, not just complain about them.

We’re the same.

Call us idealistic, but we believe when good people get together and create amazing stuff, we really do have the power to change the world.
