Social Media has become an essential tool for charities to connect with supporters, share their stories and build relationships. Many charities, though, find social media challenging. They don’t have time to do it, they don’t know what content to post and they can’t afford a full time digital media manager.
Digital Champions is an innovative scheme that allows you to tap into the skills, expertise and guidance of an experienced digital media professional whilst also having the full time resource of your very own in house digital media champion. It provides invaluable training to a member of your team which is immediately put into practise and continually developed with practical challenges and weekly oversight.
- Charities sign up to the Digital Champions scheme and identify a member of staff or intern to participate in the scheme
- Participants attend 3 workshops over three months giving them new skills in content creation and an understanding of social media for the charity sector.
- We guide the organisation in social media strategy, content and evaluation and oversee the work of the Digital Champion through regular phone calls, emails and meetings.
- Your member of staff then creates a small amount of time each day to become your digital champion, posting on social media, creating short films and building your online communities.
