To celebrate the creativity and contributions of Indigenous communities from coast to coast to coast, this week we are excited to showcase some of the latest initiatives at the intersection of technology, digital media, and social change!
A preliminary round-up of resources to help all of us in the nonprofit sector think about how we can use our work to uphold the values of anti-racism.
In today’s article we will be guiding you through the world of social media analytics to help you get to know your audience better and maximize the reach of your content.
In the social media universe, algorithms determine which posts people see (and in what order) every time a user signs into their accounts. As a nonprofit, there are several steps that you can take to raise your organization’s profile on the web. Taking some time to boost your online presence will help your posts go even further, leading to greater exposure and higher traction for your content.
By now, most nonprofits are familiar with scheduling services like Facebook’s built-in Publishing Tools or platforms like TweetDeck. Fewer organizations know, however, that it is possible to schedule visual content as well. Today, we are going to focus on a Canadian-built platform, called Later, and we’ll be guiding you through the step by step process of scheduling your very own visual content.
The most successful social media accounts don’t leave their messaging to chance. Instead, they invest upfront in the creation of a storytelling structure that brings key messages into focus. In today’s post, we will be exploring how to get started crafting such a calendar, and what tools you might use along the way to help you meet your outreach goals.
This month, we are introducing a new series called Spotlight on Social Media Strategies. In this first post, we will be guiding you through the process of conducting a social media audit. Later in the series we’ll be exploring tools and strategies to help nonprofits enhance their digital outreach, so stay tuned for posts on topics such as content scheduling, Instagram best practices, and more!
Large nonprofits rake in the majority of charitable donations—in fact, just 2.39% of nonprofits account for 90% of nonprofit revenue. So how do you get noticed among the hundreds of thousands of other small charitable organizations? Here’s what you need to know about why (and how) you can bring your PR techniques into the 21st century.
Podcasting engages your community by creating a conversation that uses tone of voice to connect you to your audience in a way writing can't.
It’s a useful communication tool when done right. We're going to outline some of the different approaches you can take, and guide you through planning your own podcast in three simple steps.
Spreading the word about your nonprofit is an important part of achieving your mission. Having an excited, engaged audience can boost donations, bolster support, and deepen your impact. But it isn’t always easy to get people excited about social causes. If the message isn’t coming from the right individual, it can seem boring or forgettable.
