  • Focus on the pull strategy to make the donator willingly donate and enter some details.

  • Post stories daily that includes the website link or links that leads to real stories (Praditya, 2021).
  • Try to engage more the influencers that SAGG follow by asking them to talk about SAGG and the importance of girls’ education.
  • Create campaigns or chose high-reach hashtags and try to make it viral to increase the engagement of the audience (Almieda, 2020).

Overall, SAGG’s Foundation should try to increase engagement in all their social media platforms by the use of influencers, leaders, and entrepreneurs. In all platforms, they should use hashtags that are a mix of big, medium, and small sized hashtags and posts (Praditya, 2021). Some examples like, #empowerwomen #gambia #education (see Appendix 2). In addition, SAGG Foundation should add a TikTok account as their competitors are very active on TikTok, having many followers and high engagement. In conclusion, SAGG’s Foundation has a high potential, however, each social media platform should have its own posts as there are different audience for each platform, having different interests, preferences, and backgrounds.
