Clicks don’t matter. Likes don’t matter. Retweets don’t matter. Real world outcomes matter. Making them happen is about more than telling your story, it’s about helping people to be a part of it. And that’s what digital is good at. On Tuesday 7th June, we brought more than 40 digital fundraisers and communicators together at 'Good bites...on digital' to look beyond one-dimensional, transactional approaches to digital fundraising and campaigning - focusing on how digital can build genuine engagement instead.

    • Charities have great stories. Fact.
    As we all know... Content is King (not Charles)
    • The 1 C: Content
    • Doesnt really matter what form content takes
    • Text, videos, photos, Tweets, Facebook posts, online/offline its all content
    • User generated content is a buzz term, but its still important
    • Getting great content from supporters is not easy
    • Friends stories have more impact
    • Supporters will tell your story
    Supporters will tell your story (if you ask)
    • The nudge
    • Prompt sharing of their own stories
    • Impact is low, at the moment
    • But , this is a first step towards getting supporters to tell their stories about why they support a charity
    • This is great content that could be used in many ways
    • Were learning how to ask for storytelling and sharing
    • Sonnys law after every action, share
    • Made a donation?
    • Signed a petition?
    • Registered for an event?
