  10. 10. Case Study | Brief: Bright One was invited to help develop messaging and produce copy for the website, before launching it to the relevant audience.

We delivered a series of bespoke recommendations applicable to each different social media website to ensure consistent presence to help drive traffic and interest to the organisation. Results: Within two months since it was launched in July 2008, the number of page views had increased by 500% and the number of unique users had risen steadily. The launch was widely covered in the target media, from key mental health publications to NHS newsletters, leading to influential executives in the mental health space joining the website.
