Tone of voice

It’s about what we say and how we say it


Let’s start at the beginning

We’re a simple brand

One with a confident message that’s easy to understand. Staying true to our tone of voice is key to creating an outstanding online experience.

Simply put

We’re warm, friendly and energetic, with a dash of British charm. We like to make our members smile and put a spring in their step.

We collaborate

That’s just how we do things. We create content that connects with our members because they’re at the heart of everything we do.

Our social channels

These are an extension of our brand and give our members a chance to be part of more than just a network. A network that’s supportive and trustworthy and keeps them safe.

Our brand values

We focus on what matters

Social

Conversations and collaboration are at the heart of our business

Transparent

Some companies keep secrets. We don’t

Lean

We don’t waste money. We find new efficient ways of doing things and return the savings to you

Decent

Easy to say, hard to do. We always try

Our brand personality

It’s in our DNA

Friendly

We’re happy to talk to you if you want. We’re happy to listen if you want to talk

Spirited

We don’t need to be for everyone, so we enjoy our way of doing things

Committed

We really love what we do and are determined to do it well

Disruptive

In a positive way. Making things better sometimes upset the big boys, we don’t mind that

Tone of voice

Our brand value + our brand personality = Tone of voice

Friendly

As if we’re talking to our mates. We’re happy and friendly

Clear

We’re easy to understand by using clear and simple language

Simple

It’s about using short sentences. Let’s not make it complicated

Fun

We make our members smile where we can

So we are

  • Friendly - but not annoying

  • Upbeat - but not overbearing/flippant
  • Challenging - But not aggressive
  • Informative - But not patronising
