Instagram Stories are one of the most popular and engaging social media formats — and one of the least used by nonprofits.

We get it! The content disappears in 24 hours and people flip through Stories so quickly . . . is it really worth your effort?

Yes! If you streamline your approach and simplify your workflow for Stories. We’ll show you how during our latest Jump Starter workshop! And, yes, you can repost those Instagram Stories to Facebook too.

During this Jump Starter, you’ll receive:

  • Training on the most engaging uses of Instagram Stories for nonprofits and how to pick the right approach for your organization.

  • Guidance on understanding your objectives for Stories. What are you trying to accomplish by posting there?

  • Encouragement to think in terms of a series of posts rather than just in-the-moment one-offs. Instant sharing in the moment is great, but how can 3 or 5 or 7 posts work together tell a real story for your organization?

  • Tips on simplifying your brand look for Stories. Playing around with designs and stickers is fun, but it can also waste ridiculous amounts of time. We’ll help you decide on a quick style guide for your Stories.

  • Sample templates for Stories to get you started. You’ll get access to a bunch of examples and templates that are super easy to customize for your nonprofit, including several Canva templates.

  • Time to work on your first drafts. You’ll have time during the Jump Starter to begin storyboarding and editing templates.
