How to Deepen Donor Engagement through Compelling Digital Storytelling presented by Julia Campbell

This will be a 3-hour tactical workshop, highly participatory will share stories that have the power to persuade, to captivate, and to move people from passive to active. Human brains are wired to remember stories - not just to hear or listen to stories, but to experience them along with the storyteller. 

While the power and the principles of great storytelling have not changed since humans began to communicate, the landscape in which to tell stories certainly has. Digital technologies have fundamentally changed the way people research, consume, and share information. 

The current fast-changing, always-on digital reality demands ever-more creative approaches to storytelling - to grab attention, to pique curiosity, and to inspire action. How can we collect, craft, and share stories in order to take our audience from passive to active? Which channels should we use to maximize visibility for our stories? How can we make complex and difficult issues come to life through stories? 

In this interactive 3-hour workshop, digital storytelling expert Julia Campbell will walk you through the secrets to nonprofit storytelling success in the digital age, based on her bestselling book for nonprofits. This workshop also includes digital access to a printable Storytelling in the Digital Age Workbook and Content Calendar template. 

Participants will learn: 
● How to employ Julia’s simple 3-part framework to turn donors from passive to passionate; 
● How to create an organizational culture that embraces storytelling; 
● How to craft great stories that donors will love; 
● How to create a system to collect and share the best stories about your work that will energize and inspire your donors; 
● How to use digital tools like websites, email, and social media to share your nonprofit stories with a wider audience; 
● Exercises you can do with your Board and staff to brainstorm story ideas; 
● Free and low-cost tools you can use to enhance your digital storytelling on a shoestring budget; and ● Real-world examples and case studies from small and mid-size nonprofits. 

Skills, knowledge and attitudes to be addressed in the program: 
Participants will be able to identify the best types of stories to share on digital channels and create a plan to share the stories on their website, email communications, and social media.
