Digital marketing can be challenging and frustrating because it’s constantly changing and evolving.

You have Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Reddit. Sooo many platforms to choose from and so many unexpected variables to watch out for. You’ve got bug fixes, interface updates, new rules, and the ever shifting algorithm to keep up with. Just when you thought you got it figured out… BAM! Something new. So, it’s not a stretch to say that even the most seasoned nonprofit marketer can get overwhelmed with all this!

But, hey! Just because digital marketing is not particularly easy, doesn’t mean that you should avoid it. There are still plenty of ways for nonprofits to cut through the noise and learn how to use digital marketing effectively without being forced to use ALL of the marketing platforms all at once.
