20NTC Session Proposal

Collecting User-Generated Content for Digital Success


Your donors and advocates are the best messengers for your cause. Their own stories in their own voice are authentic, emotional and will beat your corporate organizational marketing speak any day.

The demands on your team to create content are increasing. More channels, more posts, more video… how can we keep up?

Your constituents can be your best content creators. In this fast-paced session we’ll learn how to ask, how to engage and how to capture content from your constituents that moves you to mission success. We’ll see case studies from leading charities and advocacy orgs.
