Tracking mentions and conversations about your brand on social media sites, then evaluating them for insights to find opportunities to act, is known as social listening. (Newberry, 2021)

Any instrument or service that makes use of telecommunication technology, including digital media, to facilitate the production and exchange of data, information, and action, including dialogue, is considered social media. It is important for any company that its social media profiles and strategy should be evaluated and optimised. (Gattiker, 2014)

industry trends| SaGG Foundation

The successful industry trends are storytelling for real-life videos educating people about why girls’ education is important and all other questions that we know people are talking about in the above figure and how you can change the lives of girls by donating or sponsoring. Collaborations through Instagram by influencers are the best way to create awareness as they have a good reach of audience and adding hyperlinks to increase shares and re-tweets can also create brand awareness. 

Social media goals and recommendations 

  1. Launch a hashtag campaign-  Hashtags work as CTA for your brand and create awareness regardless of location and size. Launching a campaign with hashtags can make content easily accessible and coming up without searching for the charity specifically. 
  2. Increase engagement on all social media platforms:  
  • Instagram: Instagram stories are the best way to have conversations with your audience. Create memes that will include the number of shares for your brand. Most important is to include CTAs in all your post captions.
  • Facebook: To make a weekly calendar using platforms like Hootsuite and Facebook scheduling tools to post on the perfect timings that are when your audience is most active. Always have new content and avoid repetitive content. Lastly, don’t forget to include CTAs.  
  • Twitter- Using more visual content like GIFs, memes, high-quality images and videos will increase engagement. Always interact with your customer’s tweets and never forget to re-tweet. 
  • Linked In- Increasing your network is very important on Linked In. Create more number of posts. 

3.  As said above one of the industry trends is collaborations. Using Influencers who can promote your charity will lead to more engagement on your page and help create awareness for your charity. 

4. Always follow the ongoing trends on different platforms and always have your calendar ready as to what is the next thing that people are celebrating like women’s day etc. Tik-Tok is the most trending platform and SaGG Foundation must come up with a Tik-Tok platform that will lead to brand awareness. 

5. Use the SMART framework which will set objectives for business in terms of what should be accomplished? how will you measure your goal? Is the goal achievable and relevant in terms of your results? In how much time do you expect to achieve this? SaGG Foundation can achieve its goals by using a smart framework with the goals and targeting the right audience as stated above. 

6.  Amplify the cause as one of the voices for girls education in Gambia. Educate people more about why they should donate and sponsor and also about what is happening in Gambia.
