About this event
When people explain the use of content marketing, the definition is closely followed by the question ‘who uses content marketing?’. The typical reply consists of industries such as the finance industry, or automotive, or travel, but the use of content marketing in the charity sector has been rising. Many not for profits are using content marketing to their advantage to raise awareness of their aims and create an affinity with people to encourage donations, or attend fundraising events.
However when the core aim of an organisation isn’t profit, as is typical with many content marketing campaigns, the whole process of content marketing is different.
We’re hosting a panel discussion with well-known charities and content marketing agencies behind some fantastic content marketing charity campaigns, to explore these differences to a profit-driven brand, and discuss why content marketing is so important for the third sector.
