Boost your game with these media production toolsBy David Terraso
One of the best ways nonprofits can connect directly with supporters and with the media is by posting great videos and photos on social media channels. A compelling social media presence can catapult your organization from obscurity to inspiration, giving people reason to rally around you and clamor for opportunities to lend their support. Throw in a fundraising activity like Georgia Gives Day, and you’ve got a recipe for success.
Here are a few tools to help you tell your story, suggested by Andrew Finlayson, keynote speaker at GCN’s latest Nonprofit Media Summit and SmithGeiger Executive Vice President of Digital and Social Media Strategies.
