Hiring a social media manager can cost you $50K and up. With the AGIF, you get free, on-going broadcasts of your message every week via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube … driving potential donors and funders to your website.

We will interview you by phone or Skype (30-60 minutes) to learn the who-what-when-where-why-how details of your nonprofit. This will enable us to tell your story much more powerfully. These social media posts can contain memes (graphics), images, or videos to make your story even more effective.

Your messages on social media will post up to twice a week for a year, rotating through the cycle we will develop for you. If you have special events or fundraisers, we can help to promote those as well.

What could you now do with all that extra exposure?
