In the busiest time of the year, learn how to make sure people see your stories on social media. Find out how to make your stories rise to the top during year-end giving and holiday overload. This workshop will focus on the intersection of storytelling and social media, in regards to the “influencer economy.” Learn what that is, how it works against nonprofits, and how you can leverage it to benefit your mission, specifically by working with staff and volunteers to create your own digital ambassadors — your army of storytellers to share why your work matters and how it helps.

Key Takeaways:

  • Get an understanding of the pros and cons of the influencer economy as they relate to nonprofits and storytelling.
  • Walk away with a plan for identifying and engaging influencers (i.e. volunteers, including board) with story from your existing community.
  • Walk away with a plan for mobilizing your community of influencers to move your mission forward for an upcoming campaign or event, using story.
