In Episode 9, we wanted to do an extension of our Social Media discussion from the previous episode and to really hone in on two newer social platforms that have popped up in the last 5 years: Discord - the all-in-one voice/text communication platform - and TikTok - the short-form social video platform - to see how both charities and content creators can best make use of these platforms in establishing their presence in the online fundraising world. To supplement these discussions, we invited on Tiltify Charity Success Manager and Content Creator Ashleeeeean to the podcast to share her expertise from both the content creation and nonprofit realms. With 5 years of experience in the content creation world and over a year working with nonprofits at Tiltify, Ashley has established over a lifetime of experience - and her vast understanding of Discord and TikTok made this a great episode to not only discuss the social platforms, but to share her wisdom about the digital fundraising space as a whole.

Topics of Discussion:
02:10 - Ash's start in Content Creation
10:27 - Making the Shift from Content Creator to Industry Member
14:57 - Modernizing Your Social Approach

A huge thank you to Ashley for joining us for Episode 9 of our podcast!

Podcast cover

In Episode 5, we chatted with James "PlagueTV" Inks - the Community and Influencer Relations Manager for To Write Love On Her Arms, which is one of the most well-known non-profit organizations in the United States! We got to talk to James about his transition from video game lover to industry professional, how he got involved with an organization as well known as TWLOHA, and how he has helped the organization adapt to the content creator world.

Since TWLOHA's origin is all about storytelling, we decided to approach this episode in the same way. This episode, you will hear about all of our origin stories and how all 3 of us (Daniel, Maggie, and James) went from video game lovers to content creators and, eventually, industry professionals! Throughout our storytelling, you'll hear about our approaches to joining the industry side of things and how we adapted to the struggles of representing companies and brands - all while disproving (or maybe even validating) your notions of what it means to work in the content creator / charity industries.
