Social media platforms have the potential to bring in new audiences/donors and allow people to engage in new ways. In a post-truth world that seems to increasingly value the superficial getting cut through for your organisation’s message on digital platforms can be difficult. This interactive workshop will share tips and techniques to tap into that potential and grow the reach of your organisation.

We will discuss how to utilise digital media platforms effectively, specifically for small to medium not-for-profit organisations, including:

– what language will best promote engagement;
– which digital platforms are best for your organisation;
– tips around use of visual material and video;
– how to use targeting and paid boosting for Facebook effectively and ethically;
– updates around current algorithms and what this means for your digital messaging.
