Are your social media accounts telling your story effectively?

Posted by Bianca

Here are some suggestions to help you create a plan for your social media activity that is engaging:

Free webinar – Introduction to social media in your fundraising

Before you start creating your social media strategy, make sure you are getting the basics right. You can watch a free recording of SYFAB’s beginners webinar Introduction to social media in your fundraising here which we delivered in May 2020. The webinar has lots of top tips and explores how social media can be used in your fundraising and to engage with potential donors. This session is aimed at beginners and those new to using social media in their fundraising.

Although the session was delivered during the first lockdown last year, the content and messages are still relevant today, however please ignore the evaluation link (that was for the live participants) and please see below for our next  Social Media Strategy Mater Class date.

Social Media Strategy Master Class (virtual classroom)

This interactive intermediate level session supports you to develop a social media strategy for your organisation/project, considering your capabilities and capacity.

The session also aims to develop your understanding of how social media tools can support the work you do, including widening your reach using pay-for-advertising (more affordable than you may think) and understanding the basics of how scheduling and analytical tools can help you work more effectively.

We are delighted to have guest tutor Lou Mycroft, a social media ninja and digital pioneer, facilitating this session and sharing her top tips (please see @loumycroft and
