How to Start Blogging for a Nonprofit
Posted Thursday, June 25th, 2015 by Verified Volunteers Staff
As a nonprofit, you know how important your brand is. It helps you attract financial supporters as well as volunteers – and it helps you get the word out about the causes you care about and all the great work you’re doing. But how exactly do you build your brand – or build on an already strong brand? One important piece of the puzzle is content. The content you generate and share is vital to getting your name out.
We have posted before about creating compelling online content for your nonprofit. We’ve also talked about growing an online community of supporters for your organization. In the same spirit, let’s talk about blogging.
If you are like most people, you have go-to blogs for both personal and professional purposes. For example, you are reading this blog to learn about how you too can blog! As a blogger myself, I know how difficult it can be to get started – and then to keep the momentum going. So when I spotted this webinar recording on the topic, I thought I would share with my readers.
This session, Planning a Nonprofit Blog You Can Manage, covers:
- How to create content ideas and how often you should post
- Contingencies to keep your nonprofit’s blog running as smoothly as possible
- Editorial guidelines and how to work with multiple contributors
- Essential decisions and plans to streamline the role of the blog’s managing editor
This webinar will be of particular interest to those new to blogging – or just new to blogging on a more consistent basis. I hope you find it helpful.
