Good-Loop takes money from advertisers, and gives it to charities.
But Good-Loop is not itself a charity: we do this by making ads more effective. We are turning ads from a nuisance to be blocked, into a shared positive moment which funds social and environmental good. We also believe in treating internet users fairly, empowering them to be partners in the advertising and data ecosystem. Clients include Unilever, Kit-Kat, and Pepsi. Last year we raised over £500,000 for charity. This year we will double that.
You will be responsible for moving forward two products:
Impact Hub: A B2B reporting tool, which showcases the positive impact of charity giving, alongside data-visualisation of business metrics. Here is the current version. We want to improve and extend it.
My Good-Loop: A B2C web portal for people to join Good-Loop and make free charity donations. Here's an early version for this. We want to improve and extend it.
