Elements of Marketing - Social Media for Charities Article by Delivered Social


Building a Strategic Social Media Foundation

Starting your journey on social media for charities can feel a bit like planting a garden. You need the right tools, a bit of know-how, and a vision of what you want to grow. For charities, laying down a strategic social media foundation is crucial, it’s not just about posting content but planting the seeds that will bloom into a thriving community of supporters.

First, get to know your soil – your audience. Who are they? What do they care about? Social media gives you the unique opportunity to listen as much as you speak. By understanding who your audience is, you can tailor your messages to resonate with them deeply. Whether it’s sharing success stories that tug at the heartstrings or informative posts that enlighten, speaking directly to your audience’s interests will help your content flourish.

Next, choose your garden plot – your platforms. Not all social media is created equal, and each platform has its quirks and audience. Facebook might be your go-to for reaching a wide range of demographics, while Instagram could be perfect for sharing those impactful images and stories. X (Twitter) on the other hand, is ideal for quick updates and engaging in broader conversations. TikTok also is extremely important particular as video marketing is the quickest way to grow your audience. Selecting the right platforms means you’re planting your seeds in fertile ground.

Then, it’s time to plan your planting – your content strategy. Consistency is key in social media, just like watering your garden regularly. Plan your content in advance, but also stay flexible to respond to current events or feedback from your followers. Mix up your posts to keep things interesting – photos, stories, updates, and calls to action which are all relevant to your charity but also educate the person on the other side.

Watering your plant – community engagement. Social media is a two-way street. Engage with your followers by responding to comments, participating in conversations, and sharing user-generated content. Remember, building a social media presence is a marathon, not a sprint. It takes time, patience, and a bit of experimentation to see what works best for your charity. But don’t worry, you’re not alone. Delivered Social is here to support you every step of the way, from honing your strategy to sprucing up your digital space with a professional website. With our help, your charity’s social media presence will not only grow but thrive, creating a vibrant community around your cause.

Content That Connects: Engagement and Storytelling

Creating content that resonates with your audience is like telling stories around a campfire.  To captivate your listeners, draw them into your online space, and make them feel a part of your charity’s journey. In the world of social media for charities, this means crafting posts that do more than just inform – they inspire, connect, and engage.

Storytelling is your superpower. Every charity has stories that can touch hearts and spur action. Maybe it’s the tale of someone you’ve helped, a volunteer’s journey, or the behind-the-scenes work that makes your missions possible. These stories put a human face on your cause and show the impact of support. Remember, people connect with people, not just causes.

Visuals bring your stories to life. A picture is worth a thousand words, and on social media, captivating images and videos can make your message fly. Use visuals to complement your stories such as photos from events, infographics with impactful statistics, or videos/reels that show your charity in action. These elements catch the eye and are more likely to be shared, extending your reach.

Engagement turns followers into part of your story. Encourage interaction by asking questions, inviting followers to share their experiences, or running polls and quizzes. When someone takes the time to comment on your post, respond with gratitude and openness. This builds a community around your cause, making supporters feel valued and part of something larger.

Authenticity wins hearts. In an online world flooded with content, real authenticity stands out. Be true to your charity’s voice and values. Let your passion for your cause shine through, and don’t be afraid to show the challenges as well as the triumphs. This honesty builds trust and deepens your connection with your audience.

Crafting content that connects is not just about what you say, but how you say it. It’s about weaving a narrative that invites engagement but also how it can drive engagement, showcase the incredible impact of support, and build a community around your cause. And remember, you don’t have to do it alone. Delivered Social is here to help your charity capture the power of storytelling and engagement, turning likes and shares into real-world action and support.
