Positive Impact

Our goal is to help purpose driven organisations improve the measurement and effectiveness of their website, to persuade more visitors to take the desired website action and therefore magnify their social and environmental impact.

We do this in two ways:

Conversion Optimisation Consultancy (read more)

Training & Mentoring (read more)


We’re proud to be a Certified B Corp and take inspiration from the “blueprint for better business” and the B Corp movement; we’re building our business to do well (financially) and do good (socially and environmentally).

Conducting business in a sustainable manner doesn’t mean compromising performance.

But we don’t only work with sustainable clients. We believe (and hope) that most organisations are taking steps to conduct business in a more positively impactful way. In our view, the greatest, aggregated, positive impact will come from helping the “mass middle” of well-intentioned organisations move faster.

We’ve made a number of sustainability commitments to demonstrate our desire to conduct business in a “better way” whilst also being focused on results. This includes our 5:5:50 principle where we’re formally committed to:

1. Donate 5% of our revenue to charity.

2. Allocate 5% of our time, pro-bono, to professional development causes.

3. Have at least 50% of our clients who are as committed to positive impact business practices as we are (we’ll nudge the rest).

We’ve outlined all of our commitments below:

  • Community - Our Charity Commitment

    5% of our revenue is formally committed to charity annually. Currently our primary charity partner is Frank Water; we’re proud to be a “Rainmaker” partner with them. We plan to continue to support Frank Water, but we’ll also be seeking additional charity partners in the coming years.

  • Environmental - Minimising Our Footprint

    We set up a variety of processes to enable us to monitor our environmental footprint. Our goal is to reduce our environmental impact wherever we can. Some steps taken include:

    • Making business trips by public transport and on foot wherever possible
    • Closely monitoring energy usage and reducing where possible
    • Finding small, incremental improvements (such as no longer sending attachments on emails)
    • Choosing & championing suppliers who are climate conscious
    • And in order to offset the impact we haven’t been able to reduce, we’ve signed up to Ecologi to regularly donate to tree planting.
  • People - Professional Development

    5% of our time is dedicated to pro-bono time for charities & enabling professional development – with a conscious focus on supporting disadvantaged young people enter the Marketing industry – for example in the following ways:

    • Acting as an Equal Opportunities Ambassador for Babbasa.
    • Establishing a Meetup group (CONVERT Bristol) for peers to share and learn.
    • Teaching as an Associate Lecturer on the UWE Digital Marketing Masters Course.
  • Our Overall Sustainability Commitment

    We’ve made a formal commitment to follow the five principles of a purpose driven business developed by Blueprint for Better Business as set out below:

    1. Has a purpose which delivers long term sustainable performance
    2. Honest and fair with customers and suppliers
    3. A responsible and responsive employer
    4. A good citizen
    5. A guardian for future generations

    As part of this and in order to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, we’ve made a specific commitment relating to each of People, Planet & Profit.

  • Our Ethical Marketing Commitment

    It is our firm belief that Trust is the most important lever a marketer can pull to improve the performance of a campaign, and the most effective way to earn Trust is to be consistently Transparent and Honest with marketing messaging.

    We are committed to honesty in our own marketing and to advocate that our clients’ marketing is transparent, honest and reflects their products and services in a genuine and representative manner.

  • What do you mean by "Purpose Driven Organisations"?

    There’s a growing understanding of the responsibility of business to help with global challenges such as climate change, but organisations can more broadly address challenges of this nature, without focusing on single issues, by becoming Purpose Driven.

    Organisations often focus on success measures such as “profit” and “value” and get pulled towards thinking of them as financial value and financial profit (typically for shareholders); but Economists have noted for centuries that value should be taken to include factors more broadly than that, even trying to measure intangibles such as “happiness”.

    We believe that the greatest “value” can be achieved by businesses & organisations taking these other factors into account in all forms of decision making, especially considering how to generate the greatest value for all stakeholders (employees, customers, neighbours, government etc.) and not just shareholders.

    Purpose driven organisations are those that recognise this wider responsibility of value creation. It is by working with organisations of this type, to improve the effectiveness of their marketing activity, that we believe we can have the greatest impact on value creation.

  • What do you mean by "B Corp"?

    B Corp is a non-profit network transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. Their goal is to demonstrate that successfully profitable businesses can take social and environmental factors into equal consideration when making decisions.

    We also won’t work with any organisations who we feel are focused on making a profit “at all costs”, regardless of their impact on society or the environment.

  • Inclusivity, Equality & Diversity Policy

    We strongly believe in encouraging a collaborative and inclusive working culture. We believe it benefits everyone to promote diversity and eliminate discrimination in the workplace, or any business interaction.

    Anyone we interact with will be respected and valued; we will not provide less favourable services or behaviour on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sex and sexual orientation.
