industry: Charity
service: Email Marketing, Postal Marketing

Our managed email marketing and postal marketing services have helped Just Like Us to connect with key education decision makers in UK schools.


Just Like Us is the UK’s leading LGBT+ young people’s charity.

They wanted to raise awareness of their relatable, age-appropriate school talks and free school resources to staff in UK secondary schools with the aim of promoting inclusivity, allyship, and understanding of the LGBT+ community in education.

The team at Just Like Us first approached Buzz Education in 2021 after being impressed by our service offering, client case studies and education insights. Our client success team worked closely with their CEO to recommend marketing campaign options to meet the charity’s unique requirements and with the ultimate aim of raising charity awareness in schools. Just Like Us were keen to use our extensive education database and our education marketing expertise to optimise their campaigns, whilst creating their own marketing content.

A targeted multi-channel marketing campaign.

Our campaign strategist worked with the team at Just Like Us to create a bespoke campaign package and identify the most relevant teachers and decision makers to target.

A multi-channel marketing package was a great option as it meant they could target the direct inboxes of
key decision makers in schools, plus post marketing materials direct to the same decision makers.

Our flexible campaign options meant they could also provide their own email campaign content, safe in the knowledge
that our creative team were on hand to provide advice, build the HTML designs, and optimise the campaigns
to achieve the best engagement rates.


We gave Just Like Us access to the latest education news, as well as key insights to help them develop their own email marketing content and raise charity awareness in schools.

The email and postal campaigns provided us with a different and new way of reaching key decision makers. The HTML designs that Buzz Education create work well and we love the layout of the emails. I like how we were offered different template options to choose the one that worked best with our branding.”
