The advantage of having a social media strategy to get as many donations as possible.
Whether you are ready or not, the holiday season begins in a few short weeks and as we all know, once it begins, it is over in the blink of an eye. As soon as the clock strikes 12:00 am on November 1st, the Christmas lights go up and everyone’s schedule becomes entirely more hectic. From running around to purchase gifts to planning out your Thanksgiving dinner, it is common to feel like you’re being pulled in a thousand directions at once. One of the special holidays that you might not have on your radar is GivingTuesday.
GivingTuesday is an incredibly important holiday if you are associated with a nonprofit and is celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It is fueled by the power of social media and inspires millions of people across the globe to give back to causes that mean the most to them. GivingTuesday was established to formulate a gigantic wave of generosity that lasts far beyond the 24-hour window and into the other 364 days. This year, GivingTuesday is on December 3rd and our Hashtag Creative team is here to help you make the most out of it before time runs out. We have 30+ years of experience marketing nonprofits as well as many successful years of taking advantage of GivingTuesday. Here are some statistics to show you how powerful this day really is.
- 3.6 million gifts were given to nonprofits.
- $400 million dollars were donated.
- 14.2 billion social media mentions.
- An estimated $502 million dollars will be donated in 2019.
Given these statistics, it is clear how important this holiday is for nonprofits and if you’ve never taken advantage of it/had an expert team on your side to own this, we are here to help you. Our entire Hashtag Creative team is wildly passionate about giving back, making a difference, and benefitting the world around us, which is why we adore every single opportunity that we have to help nonprofits.
Utilizing Social Media
Social media is a beast and can be very complex to understand. Algorithms are constantly changing, new tools are always being developed, and at times, certain features may not work and it pays off to have true experts who know how to fix or creatively alter a situation. There are many tools that exist on social media that can benefit nonprofits, it just takes experts like us to make the most of them to benefit those in need.
