Fundraising First Thing: Storytelling through social - Creating engaging content to drive support

30 June 2020 London

Interactive breakfast seminars which provide a unique forum for open debate and an opportunity to connect with your peers.

From social media to campaigns and websites - engaging content is key to getting your message across and driving support. This session will look at how three charities have redeveloped their content strategies and the lessons they have learned along the way.​

This event is designed to provide space for charities to debate with other charities. As a result, there are no corporate spaces available and we will withdraw places booked by non-charity delegates. We will issue a refund minus an administration fee of 15%.

    How Battersea digitised its communications

    Battersea Dogs & Cats Home digitised its communication by updating newsletters, creating an improved online rehoming application service and using SEO to get the charity’s pet advice to the masses. It then focused on advertising, adopting an ‘always-on’ strategy to ensure the right messages were seen by the right people at the right time. This user-led approach signalled a step change from the previous approach of static messages being broadcast to mass audiences.​

    Kate Cooper-Owen, head of content and social media​ teams and Lauren Rayner, head of digital, Battersea ​

  • 10.00AM - 10.30AM
    Taking it back to grassroots level

    British Heart Foundation has been using its social media channels to get back to the basics of what it does,  empowering its hundreds of shops workers, fundraisers and other volunteers to create and share social media content. This gives an authentic voice to those who see the work the charity does and the difference it makes, driving support and donations.

    Athar Abidi, Head of Social Media, British Heart Foundation

  • 10.30AM - 11.00AM
    Networking coffee break
  • 11.00AM - 11.30AM
    Making it authentic
