Free event: How do you create a great social media campaign?

social media apps rs

Social media has brought fundraising efforts to a global stage, and the inventiveness of some charity campaigns is only exceeded by the public’s enthusiasm to participate.

From the Ice Bucket Challenge to Cancer Research UK’s #nomakeupselfie, fundraising drives that started on social networks have delivered big for their charities. In just a month, the Ice Bucket Challenge raised more than $100 million for the ALS Association, all while raising awareness of motor neurone disease.

If you’re interested in finding out how your charity can leverage the power of social media, join us on September 29th at the Kings Place in London for the first in our series of free Charity Digital Insights events, in association with Technology Trust.

The evening will be a series of informative, bite-sized sessions and talks for charities who are making their first forays into using social media to help in their fundraising, as well as the more seasoned organisations interested in developing their knowledge.

Confirmed to speak at the event are social media and engagement experts from Cancer Research UK, Beating Bowel Cancer and mental health charity Rethink, whose #findmike campaign reached as far as Canada, South Africa and Australia.

Zoe Amar, founder and director of marketing and digital communications consultancy Zoe Amar Communications, will give the keynote speech. Amar has worked with organisations including ActionAid, The Royal College of Nursing and Crimestoppers.

After a Q&A session with the event speakers, there will be a chance to put questions directly to the experts at a networking and drinks reception.

The event is free for registered charities to attend, otherwise tickets cost £100 (plus VAT).
