Improve your marketing with online digital tools

Today there are a wide range of tools available to help Charities with their marketing communications.

However choosing the right tool – or combination of tools – to meet your goals such as fundraising, attracting volunteers, and supporting your core activities can be a challenge.This course is firstly designed to give you an overview of the key digital tools including Mailchimp, LinkedIN, Facebook, Twitter, E newsletters and explain how they could be used to meet your goals.

Secondly it is designed to help you get the best from these tools, via practical, hands-on experience.

This course has been extended from 3 to 4 hours following feedback from the previous course to allow more time for practical experience during the session. A laptop, tablet or mobile phone is useful to bring to the session to allow you to try out the tools. 

What will I learn?

By the end of this session you will:

  • How to choose the most appropriate tool to meet your various goals
  • How to create content suitable for different tools
  • Overview of Mailchimp, Facebook, LinkedIN, Twitter and their key features
  • Tools for fundraising campaigns
  • Practical tools and techniques
  • How to measure the overall effectiveness of your activities
