πŸ” One Problem – Social Media for Events

If your organization is venturing into the perplexing realm of social media coverage for events, you’re in for an adventure. Just as I need the right plan for a successful moonlit escapade, nonprofits need a clear strategy when it comes to event social media:

  1. Strategic Timing 🌠: Decide whether to post during or after the event. Consider the type of event, your audience’s preferences, and your goals. It’s like choosing the best path through the forestβ€”timing is key.
  2. Engage Your Audience 🀝: Seek approval from attendees before posting their photos or quotes. Honesty and respect are your best allies in building trust. Having attendees sign a waiver when they arrive can be a smart move to gain their consent.
  3. Craft a Social Media Policy πŸ“: Create guidelines for your team and volunteers, emphasizing the importance of respecting attendees’ privacy and ensuring a consistent brand voice.
  4. Plan Your Content πŸ’»: Prepare your posts in advance to ensure they align with your nonprofit’s mission and goals. It’s like packing the right gear for a long journey.
