Whether your nonprofit is large or small, has a huge online presence or is just starting out, we will show you how to use Instagram to connect with donors, tell powerful stories, and raise awareness about your cause.  

Join Julia Campbell, a nonprofit marketing strategist who has successfully helped dozens of nonprofits use Instagram in their nonprofit marketing and online fundraising efforts and learn how to effectively use Instagram to accomplish your goals.  

Instagram is growing rapidly, with 26 percent of adults now using the social media network. Yet, only a few nonprofits include Instagram in their social media strategy…and even fewer use it properly.   

In this webinar, we will walk you step-by-step through the steps required to create a dynamic presence on Instagram, actionable ways to use it to promote your online fundraising campaigns, and the best types of content to post to increase awareness, raise money, and build an engaged following on Instagram.

You will leave with lots of ideas and tactical action steps for using Instagram in your next online fundraising campaign.

It was helpful to learn the different ways one can make information available to potential donors & customers with word content, imagery, and links to our website.”
