Do you want to grow your supporters list? Do you want to to generate more donations and actions from your emails and social media posts? Do you want to improve your use of digital tools to move supporters to real world actions? Are you unsure which of the many social media and communications channels to use to engage your supporters?
Organize BC is partnering with Leadnow, a national leader in digital campaigning, to offer a Digital Campaigning training. This interactive workshop will show you how to design digital engagement strategies to engage your supporters using a full range of digital tools: petitions, social media, email blasts, surveys, texting and more. Then we’ll focus in on designing tactics, setting targets, and writing content for supporter emails and social media. You can expect to leave with a to-do list to make your digital work more effective and a deeper understanding of how to use digital tools to find new supporters, and engage the ones you have in effective online and real world actions.
