Why YOUTUBE stars are more influential than traditional celebrities



A non-governmental organization (NGO) is any non-profit, voluntary citizens' group which is organized on a local, national or international level.

By the definition we can see that NGOs has to work on many levels so how it could attract people to be part of it, to make donation, to be partner or similar. It is all based on making good presentations so how other could have better insight in all work certain NGO is doing. 

Some of the promotional material or documents that can be used are:

NGOs can benefit tremendously from promoting their organizations to their communities and to funding agencies. Promoting the organization helps create a brand image, builds a presence and also attracts the attention of donors. It is a way of connecting with the people around you and communicating the message of the organization.“
(you can find more information on following link Different Types of Promotional Material or Documents for NGOs).
 Here I believe that Youtube makes great tool for presentation.
With video showing, of their most relevant work as well as their activities, showing them how team members are working together, through their organization as well as on team building time, target audience can have the best view in all that and still be able to communicate with them over Youtube channel, where can they make much stronger bond and communication.
All this can present good way of showing off the best through interactive way, because plain presentation and documents can’t be enough.
People gives much better response on interactive presentations then the traditional.
This statment can certainly take impact on the way NGOs could represent them to the world, their activities along with the main goal of their existence.

Digital storytelling for NGO



Storytelling has been found in every culture as a mean of sharing, teaching, preserving culture and transmitting community’s values. Stories serve as an effective way of attracting people’s attention, and moving into digital sphere made them accessible to wider audience. Digital storytelling has found its place in marketing, be it of profit or non-profit organizations. 

As J. Geneske and D. Hattaway state in their article Digital Storytelling for Social Impact, “Successful leaders in business, nonprofits, and philanthropy understand the power of storytelling to educate and inspire people. And with digital cameras, social networks, and other technology making it easier for anyone to surface and share stories, digital storytelling is a potentially powerful tool for social impact.”

But for this impact to be made and for our story to reach its target audience, it must stand out from thousands of stories emerging every day. Achieving this is hard, but not impossible. There are a few advices to take into consideration:
More information on how to use digital storytelling successfully can be found here.

The results of the e-workshop can be checked here and has contributed to the outcome of the EYE, which is a report presenting the 50 most impactful ideas that will be handed over to all Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) in September 2016.
