Raising Profiles

When Coronavirus lockdowns hit, Big Issue vendors were unable to sell on the high streets and saw their livelihoods erased. So we recreated their sales model digitally on LinkedIn

By training Big Issue vendors to use LinkedIn, they could find people who worked at the businesses near their old pitches and reconnect with them to sell digital subscriptions to the magazine.
