Top 4 Instagram Trends for Nonprofits

top 4 instagram trends

For nonprofits, storytelling is an essential part of maintaining an engaged donor base and use of Instagram is a great social network to push crafted messages to the public.  Instagram is currently one of the fastest growing social networks with over 500 million users to date. Many nonprofits find success on Instagram, using the platform as a means to share photos and drive conversation around their mission. Here are a few of the top trends on Instagram nonprofits can  utilize in 2017.

Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories is fairly new, having only been launched in August of 2016. Like its competitor Snapchat, “stories” are quick videos that vanish after being posted online for 24 hours. “Stories” that include filters, stickers, text, drawings and other fun content get the best engagement.  Nonprofits can utilize Instagram to cover live events, give insight to a typical work day at their organization, or host a “Donor Takeover”.

Instagram Live

“Live streaming” is a popular feature on Instagram that can be used to host a live Q&A, make a special announcement or simply celebrate a major milestone with your audience.

Instagram Business Tools & Profile

Establish a business profile on Instagram and access their analytics tools which are automatically available. These analytics provide intuitive details about followers which help you build meaningful messaging content.

Instagram Ads

If advertising is in your budget, utilize Instagram’s Ad services. There are several options for brands, businesses and nonprofits to advertise on Instagram’s platform. You also have the option of creating ads through your Facebook page (who conveniently owns Instagram). Better yet, Instagram ads can be used to drive traffic to any fundraising page, raise attendance at fundraising events, or promote a social campaign.

We believe Instagram will help improve branding, messaging and marketing for any nonprofit who makes an honest effort to utilize it!  Give it a shot!

6 Cyber Safety Tips for Nonprofits

6 Cyber Safety Tips blog
Protecting against cyber theft is a critical piece in ensuring donor care and retention. It’s vital for donors to know when they choose to contribute, their personal and financial information is safe and protected. Continue to insure all donor information is concealed by constantly taking the necessary steps to safeguard personal data. Here are tips to help minimize and protect against cyber threats.

Passwords

Make certain all passwords are unique for every employee and there is additional security in place to authenticate separate accounts. Employees should be required to change passwords frequently.

Protect your network

Keep Wi-Fi networks encrypted and hidden to prevent any sensitive information being leaked to unwanted parties.

Make sure all software and systems are up to date

Older systems are more susceptible to data breaches, which increases the likelihood of an unwanted hack of  vulnerable data.

Secure payment processing

Many donors choose to give online and are wary to donate if payment processing is not accessible through a robustly secure platform. Manage donations by employing a reputable third-party service specifically designed for nonprofits and which guarantees protection.

Controlled access

Prevent data breaches by only allowing necessary user access to certain files and databases. Keep administrative privileges limited to executive level managers and principal IT staff while requiring all employees to lock up any portable devices not in use.

Have a communication/response plan in place

All staff should be properly trained on security procedures and frequent updates should be provided as procedures change. Should any suspected breach occur, a solid communication and rapid response strategy guarantees employees know who to contact and ultimately prevents additional attacks from increasing.

Proactive and continuous effort to prevent cyber-attacks is critical to every nonprofit organization, their staff and donors. We promote cyber safety and encourage others to do the same!
