Social Media Tips for Your Nonprofit's Next Event

Social Media Tips for Your Nonprofit's Next Event
Want to make your nonprofit's next event the talk of the town? Of course you do! We put together some creative tips to take your social media event marketing to the next level. 
When posting on social media it is important to place the emphasis of visuals rather than text. As they say, a picture says a thousand words and according to Hubspot, images are 40,000 x's more likely to be shared than posts without a visual element. This is where Canva comes in handy. 

Canva is a free service you can use to create amazingly stunning visuals that are simple to make.

Don't believe us? They will walk you through the steps with a hands-on learning approach that will have you churning out the graphics in no time!

Once you've got the basics on how to use the software, you can start to learn the basics of design.

Canva makes it easy with pre-made templates and tutorials. Learn the fundamentals of fonts, colors and images that will convey your message with a professional pizazz and consistent branding style all while standing out from the competition in your space... for FREE for Nonprofits!

Simple, right?

Now that you are a designing whiz, let's talk about what Canva can do:

  • Have a fundraiser coming up? Make a Save-the-Date and share it across your platforms. 
  • Let's say you've got a Facebook Event for that fundraiser... Make your event photo with perfect dimensions.
  • Want to add a motivational quote? Add a custom font, some decoration, and a background image to make it stand out!
  • Now you want to promote your fundraiser, right? Change up that Facebook Cover photo.
  • Need one for Twitter too? No need to redesign the whole thing... there's an abra cadabra magic resize for that.

Now to really get fancy, you might want to have a flyer, maybe a program for the big day, how about a welcome poster?  Maybe you're just a little old school and like to print everything....

Well, great news... Canva just came out with Canva PRINT! Can you tell we're excited? It just came out today and will come right to your door step. More on that soon!
