What our clients say...

You're in safe hands...

We are ICO registered and all usage of data is kept to GDPR standards

We use social media’s advanced advertising capabilities to find your study's target participant

We then create highly engaging social media adverts that increase awareness of your study and engage your ideal health research participant

We split test the adverts created for your campaign and adjust the campaign spend to focus only on the best performing adverts


Our Health Research recruitment system uses social media to find eligible participants for clinical surveys and studies. Our system has helped world-renowned health and research institutes meet their study’s participant recruitment targets.

Used in collaboration with traditional recruitment methods, social media provides improved levels of awareness and engagement between studies and potential participants. This helps drive participants through to randomisation at a lower cost per acquisition than traditional methods alone.

Our system is compliant with ethics committee guidelines - we’ve promoted ethically approved studies for NIHR, Imperial College London, Lancaster University, the University of Nottingham and many more.
