Julia Campbell


Great storytelling is the best way to capture the attention, as well as the hearts and minds, of your supporters. According to research done by Waggener Edstrom of social media users who support nonprofits online, 56% said that compelling storytelling is what motivated them to take action in the first place.

Working together, the power of great stories and the reach of digital channels will inspire people to take a desired action (i.e., volunteer, sign a petition, attend an event, donate), and make it easy and desirable for your current supporters to share the story with their networks.

In this workshop, Julia Campbell, author of the new book, “Storytelling in the Digital Age: A Guide for Nonprofits”, will walk you step-by-step through the process of creating digital storytelling campaigns to raise awareness and funds, increase engagement with your online community, and accomplish your marketing goals.
