LinkedIn for Charities

Maximise your charity company page on LinkedIn – Get more charity donations using LinkedIn

These are a charity’s shop window on LinkedIn.

It is a place for followers to gain insight not only into what a charity stands for, but what they are actively doing as well. For charities, this opens up a wealth of opportunities to share content, news and events with a wide range of potential supporters.

There are over 165,000 non-profit pages on LinkedIn so make sure your cause stands out.

I employ a variety of techniques to achieve this and make your number of followers grow.

Utilise your colleagues and volunteers

  • Involve them in your new LinkedIn marketing plan as they will be your charity’s biggest advocate.
  • Encourage your team to use their personal profiles to build connections following meetings, conferences and networking events.

I can run bespoke workshops for your charity to show how they can extend the reach of your appeal, campaign or latest news.

Regularly post your charity news and events

  • Let the world know that you are looking for help in a particular area of your charity; whether it be volunteers, staff or a particular request. Lots of companies have a policy of corporate social responsibility programmes, so you may find that a company responds to your cry for help.

Network regularly to spread the word

  • LinkedIn helps you to connect with the gatekeepers of many organisations. Want to reach that elusive pro bono partner at a City firm or a high net worth individual?
  • It helps you look for individuals who have expressed an interest in volunteering. Use LinkedIn for Volunteers to find potential candidates.
  • Joining the right LinkedIn Groups can help to alert individuals to your charity’s work, and there are support networks readily available.

Engage regularly with your connections

  • Communication is not a one-way street. You need to engage regularly with your supporters and connections by commenting on their updates and discussions.

I offer bespoke training and personal marketing plans to ensure that you really maximise the benefits of using LinkedIn.

I recently attended Links2Leads Stage 2 training course in Reading and I was really happy about the outcome. I learnt new tactics to promote my businesses and be more visible on LinkedIn. I highly recommend Rachel Tombs of Links2Leads training courses to everyone looking to develop their business further on.

I recently touched base with Rachel because she kindly had offered her services to help me give an outline of LinkedIn and because I had two profiles. She spent an hour with me on Skype helping me sort things out as well as put me in touch with people to make connections. I can't thank her enough, she really cares for the business and helping others!

I was recomended Links2Leads service by a friend who had used the service to update her profile. My need was slightly greater as I had been employed by the same Company for 18 years and didn’t really have any profile to speak of. After an initial discussion I decided to opt for the “full writing service” as my understanding of how to actually write the profile was very limited and I didn’t want to limit any opportunity out there.

From the outset the service was excellent, I had an initial lengthy consultation of what I was trying to achieve with the profile which then led onto a detailed discussion about previous history etc. I wrote some pieces, but mostly it was written for me. The end result being a complete profile explaining in great detail my capabilities and work history, which incidentally can be downloaded into a formal CV, which I used to secure my current position of which I am now into by 2 weeks.

I am absolutely convinced that without the CV drawn down from the page I would not be in the position I am today.

The service and turnaround timescales has been superb, I would not hesitate to recommend Rachel and her team. Thank You
