Make the Most Out of Social Media
Social media has an incredibly wide scope and many organisations today participate in some form of social media marketing, including non-profit organisations. Numerous companies have launched tools, apps, and other forms of social media marketing software over the last decade. These tools and apps all simplify the way businesses distribute their message through blogs, Facebook , Twitter , Instagram, LinkedIn , YouTube, and other social networks.
Leverage Your Website Content
One way to keep social media followers engaged is to provide them with useful content other than simply asking for money. Informational blogs/articles can become heavily trafficked content on their own, while mentioning your charity on the page would increase awareness of it. By writing about issues in your area of expertise, you will continue to support your non-profit as a professional expert who helps raise awareness about your cause and your brand.
Promote Your Business at Community Events
Live events are a perfect way to communicate with members of your community. Check what kinds of events do the best in your area, and build your own. Ensure it aligns with your cause, too. Try to make the event as fun as possible and build a meaningful link between the event and your charity. People are much more likely to contribute if they don’t feel like they’re getting pressured.
Partnering With Local Organisations
Creating a for-profit partnership can be beneficial to the business as well as to the non-profit in ways you could not have anticipated. Having a fundraiser night or social event with another organisation is a perfect way to expand your reach. And it doesn’t have to be another non-profit business. Look for one that suits your purpose and your commitment to the cause.
