Hi, I’m Glyn Thomas

I’m passionate about digital strategy, campaigning and fundraising, photography, and renewable energy. I love building websites too. Based in London.

What I can do.

I work with NGOs, charities and non-profits to help them get quality traffic to their websites and landing pages (through SEO, AdWords, email and social media).

And I make sure they maximise the impact those people have – signing up to their email list, taking part in campaign actions, and donating – through a mix of strategy, web design and development as well as analytics and optimisation.

I’m equally happy working on a campaign or fundraising strategy as I am designing and coding an email template. Or, as a client once put it, “Fantastic – you do both fluff and substance!”

Here are some of the things my clients hire me to do.

Digital strategy

I work with organisations all over Europe to devise digital strategies that combine campaigns and fundraising.

Email & social media

Split testing, reactivation, supporter recruitment, data, tools, segmentation and analytics. Yes, I’m a bit of a geek…

Websites

I built my first website in 1997, and since then I’ve built websites for loads of organisations. I love open source – especially WordPress.

Photography

I spent nearly 10 years as a professional photographer and my photos have been published all over the world.

My Work

Here are some examples of projects I’ve worked on as well as some nice things that my clients have said about my work.

Glyn understood perfectly what we needed and presented us with a variety of different solutions to fit our budget.

Glyn's training session was highly praised by participants. I would thoroughly recommend Glyn as a trainer - his enthusiasm, expertise and good communication skills all made for a highly productive session.

Alison Reynolds International Tibet Network

The training was completely tailored to the needs of the team. Glyn was very knowledgeable and able to give good, well targeted examples. All in all great.
