The Big Issue LinkedIn

Raising Profiles

Agency: FCB


LinkedIn is working with The Big Issue to get vendors set up on the professional network to help them sell online subscriptions to their magazine, bridge the digital divide and reconnect them with customers.
Since the pandemic hit, Big Issue street vendors have been amongst the worst affected by lack of earnings - as footfall on the streets has become almost non-existent, many vendors have lost their livelihoods and sense of community.
By putting Big Issue vendors on LinkedIn, we’re giving them a hand up and proving their legitimacy as small business owners. They’ll be able to search for and reconnect with their old customers, and hopefully make some new ones along the way. It’s an unexpected yet totally logical platform for vendors to continue to sell their magazines - just digitally.

This professional campaign titled 'Raising Profiles' was published in United Kingdom in February, 2021. It was created for the brands: LinkedIn and The Big Issue, by ad agency: FCB. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Media industry and contains 6 media assets. It was submitted over 1 year ago.
