Lightful Social Platform

Lightful Products case study

The Lightful Social Platform has helped charities like Spark Inside make the most of their social channels - it’s been named the most cost-effective, influential social media management platform for charities and nonprofits by Charity Digital News

The challenge

The Lightful Social Platform is a social media management tool designed specifically for small to medium-sized charities that speeds up scheduling content for social media, increases impact and saves time. Built entirely from the ground up by an in-house team of software developers, it allows organisations to plan, create and schedule their social media posts on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

The Lightful Social Platform is a key part of the BRIDGE programme, as it helps organisations put into practice the concepts they learn in live masterclasses or e-learning videos. It includes key charity features like awareness day calendars and enables organisations to set and track SMART goals.

The platform is continuously updated based on feedback from users and it is supported by a dedicated development team.

Hope for the Future

I have really appreciated the support and input received from Lightful. The platform itself is brilliant to use and the people at Lightful have been so friendly and knowledgeable about the different social media platforms and how to make best use of them. Because of support from Lightful the content of our posts has improved, we have seen an increase in engagement and following, and as a result have gained more clients for our work.
