  • 23. Overlay powerful text on photos Not just any photos will help UCC to engage with its audience. Most pictures that people like included a simple powerful message in overlying text. Example: National Wildlife Federation created a powerful message in overlying text, which made this image meaningful and engaged users.
  • 24. Introduce content with infographic UCC could share the infographic about preserving the environment on Facebook because infographics are easy to understand, and people will share inforgraphics more often than the other content online.

Also, tweets containing the word “RT” or “Retweet” receive higher retweet shares. It will help UCC to build relationships with other organizations or users. Example: The Trust for Public Land adds its opinions before retweeting the Wildness’s tweet.
  • 29. Post more tweets including images Tweets containing pictures received twice the engagement. UCC should try posting more tweets include images to engage the audience. It also would build emotional relationships with the audience through Twitter. Example: Charity:water always posts tweets which include photos. It makes its Twitter timeline feel “human” and engage its audience. Also, the photos help Charity:water develop an emotional connection with its audience.
  • 30. Define your voice on Twitter Twitter is about conversation. UCC should think about what voice it will use to talk with its audience. Also, the voice will represent its personality. A great voice can help UCC communicate with its users and develop relationships with them. Example: The voice of Etsy on Twitter is sweet, playful, warm. When users see this message, they will feel the brand personality. It’s also good for developing a relationship with its audience.
