    Episode 13: Online Advocacy Year in Review

    Episode 13: Online Advocacy Year in Review

    We’re in the second half of December -- that time when everyone is reflecting on the year. So Erin and I thought we’d take a few minutes to talk about some of the most interesting and moving online advocacy campaigns of 2014. We re-cap and analyze the Ice Bucket Challenge, Pass the Peace, #DudesGreetingDudes, #LastWords, and the fledgling #RareBrief1Time.

    Episode 11: Creating Images Quickly

    Episode 11: Creating Images Quickly

    Today we talk about strategies for using different types of images, and free online tools for creating them. Images are an important part of any advocate’s toolkit. The right image can draw people into your content, and also help them visualize and remember information. And on social media, your audience is more likely to share images than other types of posts.
    Creating compelling images can be time-consuming and even daunting for those of us who don’t have a background in graphic design. Luckily, there are lots of free new tools to help ease and speed up the process. Find links to these tools on our blog: http://firesteelwa.org/?p=2073
