  • How can charities use Storify?
  • Capture key conversations
  • • Conversations on social media can be fleeting – storify can help maintain their visibility for longer • E.g. Mind used a storify to highlight issues around OCD by curating content about a TV programme on the topic
  • Save time and resource
  • • Writing content can be time consuming – curating content can have an impact. • Avoid missing out on lost opportunities due to lack of time. • E.g. Marie Curie UK showed support for participants in the London Marathon who were helping to raise money for them
  • Tell your charity’s story
  • • Tell your charity’s story in an innovative way. • E.g. NSPCC use storify to clarify what services they provide
  • Summarise charity events
  • • Use storify to summarise events that supporters might have missed out on e.g. an #NFPTweetup summary from londonkirsty
  • Ask your supporters a question
  • • Curate answers to a question from your supporters • E.g. Diabetes UK used this strategy to raise awareness of Type 1 Diabetes by asking their supporters to tell them about their diagnosis
  • Things to consider when using Storify
  • • If all charities used storify it would lose impact and cause oversaturation • Use storify sparingly and only for key campaigns and events • See storify as another tool in your social media toolbox Will anyone bother to read it?
  • • Twitter is now starting to develop similar technology • Is there any point in setting up another tool if Twitter do it? Competition
  • • If all charities move away from creating original content it could reduce the impact of a blog. • Content would all look very similar. Engagement would likely drop. Will it reduce the impact of your blog?
  • • The biggest misuse of storify is simply using it for the sake of it. • Avoid dumping links into a storify without thinking about what the narrative is. • If done badly, storify is a waste of time and resource! Linkdumping
  • • Storify can be incredibly useful for charities: – Can help amplify your message, increase your exposure in an innovative, exciting way – Is Quick and cost effective – Helps to showcase what your supporters are saying about you – Adds weight to the messages you are already communicating • The key to using storify is: – Use it appropriately – Consider how your charity plans to use it as part of your wider social media strategy/campaign Summary
