What we’ve done, and what we can do

Macmillan promotional film

The Macmillan Social Prescribing Service is an innovative support service for people living with and beyond cancer in East London, delivered by The Bromley by Bow Centre. They needed a promotional film that worked for their three diverse audiences: people affected by cancer, cancer specialists, and funders.

Good Beans managed the production, narrative and marketing of the film, working to a tight budget, and with multiple suppliers and stakeholders.

The 2 minute film brought together moving stories from patients and service providers. It got its first airing at the stakeholder’s steering meeting, where it was received very positively by clients, commissioners and healthcare professionals. It has since been used in hospitals across the country.

A community GP surgery website

St Paul’s Way Medical Centre is a not-for-profit surgery that works with patients and community organisations to improve the health outcomes for local people. Their catchment area is incredibly diverse and along with the rise of online services, it was clear they needed a new website that allowed patients to find relevant information quickly which in turn would save the practice time and therefore money.

Good Beans ran a workshop with stakeholders to find out the key requirements. Following on from that, we made a design brief for an on-brand site with unique accessibility features. To have original assets, we booked a photographer to shoot the practice and staff before writing the copy. Finally, we managed the site build and go-live alongside our expert developer.

You can see the new-look site here. It’s design is user focussed, helpfully guiding patients to the right information while also remaining close to the Centre’s community values.

We love creating bespoke websites that work, let’s discuss your requirements and make the site of your dreams.

Social enterprise video production

Well Grounded is a social enterprise tackling unemployment by providing people with the skills they need to access roles as professional baristas in London. Their mission is to harness the potential of local people who have grown-up in a community where the coffee industry is booming, to create a talent pipeline for ambitious, fast-growth specialty coffee companies.

Good Beans were tasked with creating a campaign that communicated their vital work while showcasing the stories of their alumni.

On-point messaging was developed along with a campaign plan. We then worked with our designer to make an impactful infographic for use across their channels. Alongside these assets, an important part of the campaign was a short film. Working closely with the client and a social enterprise film producer we created a narrative that was positive and empowering.

Video is one of the most versatile and profitable marketing tactics. We can manage the whole process from commissioning, filming through to editing and promotion. Get in touch with us.

A community centre with an innovative model

The Bromley by Bow Centre is a pioneering charity that combines an extensive neighbourhood hub with a medical practice and a community research project. They deliver over 40 different services that support over 2000 people. When they rebranded in 2018 they needed to overhaul their website, which included creating relevant content that speaks to their service users.

Good Beans got stuck into all departments of the Bromley by Bow Centre and produced original content for all of their services, as well as the rest of the 80+ page website. To ensure the site was picked up by the right people, we also devised an long-term SEO strategy to promote their unique healthcare model organically.

“With limited resources Good Beans have become a fundamental pillar of the BBBC. I was impressed by their level of understanding of very complex comms challenges and resolving them with very down to earth and simple action driven solutions”. – Sergio del Prado, Communications Manager

Our Space: a microsite for workplace wellbeing

With 150 members of staff, many of who work with the community, our client the Bromley by Bow Centre was all too aware of the impact that aspects of work life can have on a person’s mental wellbeing.

They wanted to create a useful ‘pack’ for their staff, to help them to look after their mental wellbeing. We proposed a micro site for staff to access when or wherever they liked. The result, ‘Our Space’ is an online space with information and resources about all aspects of health, from sleep to work-life balance as well as access to counselling.

We wanted Our Space to be an example of best practice, while also being highly accessible for all staff, not just those already taking steps to look after their own mental wellbeing. Working in collaboration with a therapist, Our Space is easy to update and on brand, directly reflecting the nature of their work.

Micro sites are a useful method for organisations to create secure areas for staff, or a separate section for new products or campaigns, without the high price tags that come with continually keeping printed materials up to date. Speak to us about getting one for your organisation.
