Testing

We run an extensive and varied programme undertaking more than 40 raffle tests a year testing everything from format variants to creative mechanisms and data-driven initiatives.

The results are carefully monitored and analysed and the tests with proven beneficial outcomes are then rolled out to clients. Our Client Directors undertake a ‘test, measure, refine and roll out’ methodology based on empirical test results.

Creative strategy

We have more than fifteen years’ experience of designing responsive and compelling charity raffle packs, blending recognition and familiarity with doormat presence, calls to action and ease of response.

Our in-house specialists design with the responder demographic in mind and we work with sector specialist copywriters to deliver compelling reasons to play and support. Our Client Directors are charged with driving your creative strategy forward with each new charity raffle we run and come armed with extensive learning from our active test programmes.

Data strategy

Our work on raffle data strategy has been transforming raffle programs for over a decade. A huge intelligence bank of campaign results and test outcomes has helped us craft a powerful set of raffle data tools and using warm, lapsed and cold data to drive significant growth in your raffle player pool is the name of the game.

Our Client Directors are experienced raffle data strategists, so data hygiene selection, selection strategy, Ask Methodology and player journey are all areas your dedicated CD will have a laser focus on. Our reporting suite and real-time results visibility also allow our team to provide truly insightful data analysis. A key foundation on which to develop and refine your program.

We also provide unique raffle sector benchmarking intelligence through our anonymised results database which enables us to compare your programme’s performance with those of similar organisations. This also provides your account team with clear areas in which to focus their developmental activities.

Cost effective

Our in-house production facilities are configured for cost-effective and efficient raffle and lottery production. . We are also one of the few bulk manufacturers of charity raffle tickets in the UK with a capacity to produce over 500 million tickets a year.

Our business model means we are in control of our own margins and do not need to buy in and mark up on top of the manufacturer’s cost. Our technology led response handling process ensures we deliver speed with accuracy through our automated opening lines and scanning machinery.

As a result, we are the most cost-effective and accurate charity raffle provider in the market.

On-line

We design, build and host online raffle response sites for many of our clients. These allow players to respond online quickly and easily. They also provide a useful landing page for potential raffle players who aren’t part of your direct mail raffle program enabling players to be directed there from a myriad of other fundraising activities.

Our specialists are on hand to help you drive new players to your charity raffle via multiple online channels.
