Breakout Sessions

Not a Designer? Don’t Have a Designer? No Problem.

Everyone knows visual content is hot right now. Videos, images, live video—it’s everywhere. Engaging visual content on social media can not only attract attention but can entice people to take action and inspire advocacy, and turn them into supporters.

Nonprofits believe they face some challenges when it comes to their visual content creation: time, skills and budget. I will dispel 3 myths that hold nonprofits back from creating and sharing visual content on social media and show the many tools and services available online to create great visual content. The presentation will also walk through some of the top tools to demonstrate how easy it is to create graphics for social media. Downloadable action steps for using some of the tools will be provided.
