10 Strategy tips to build awareness and outreach for local charities

  1. Develop an Active Social Media Presence:
    Establishing an active social media presence is an effective way to build relationships, create brand awareness, and promote your cause. Use social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube to share stories, updates of your achievements, and your successes so that your followers can remain engaged with your posts.
  2. Create Content:
    Content creation is an important part of building relationships, creating brand awareness, and promoting your cause. Create content such as blog posts, videos, and infographics that provide helpful information to your target audience and share it on your website and social media platforms.
  3. Participate in Community Events:
    Participating in local events and conferences is an effective way to build relationships and promote your cause. Attending events can expose your cause to various local audiences that you may not meet every day, and this will foster opportunities for meaningful conversations with people in your community.
  4. Host an Event:
    Hosting an event is an effective way to build relationships, create brand awareness, and promote your cause. Consider hosting a fundraiser, a networking event, or a volunteer opportunity that is related to your cause. Establishing a presence at community events, such as fairs, festivals, and parades will help to spread awareness of the charity and build relationships with potential donors.
  5. Share Your Story:
    Sharing your story is an effective way to create brand awareness and promote your cause. Use your website, social media platforms, and other channels. {connect with us for more ideas contact page}

Data collection is your golden ticket to more people seeing or learning more about your cause. {looking for lead generation speak with us at Data Revolution link to data revolution site}
  7. Fundraiser Events:
    Host an annual fundraiser such as a gala, golf tournament, or auction. Partner with local businesses to host events on your behalf, engage with staff about running a sponsored event or a fun run, 5k and charity walk, etc.
  8. Partnerships:
    Partner with local businesses to host donation drives or volunteer opportunities. Having local businesses in your local area promoting you will improve your brand and name locally. Moreover, many businesses take on sponsorship to your cause and by acknowledgement and reciprocal advertising can benefit both organizations. You may find that a local business may also encourage their employees to advocate for your cause also.
  9. News channels & Influencers:
    Reach out to local media outlets to spread the word about the charity’s mission and activities. Work with influencers, start with local celebrities to help promote your cause. Offer them guest speaker opportunities, or to connect with local business partners. Utilize traditional advertising such as radio, television, or print.
  10. Talk about:
    Encourage word-of-mouth advertising through existing supporters. Create a volunteer ambassador program to build relationships within the community. The more people that talk about you the better your relationship marketing becomes. Everyone believes in what others say about you and your cause so leverage the power of others. This is a part of your reviews and testimonial program. [Talk to us about creating an effecting testimonial campaign.]
