Slow Content Months? 5 Ideas to Fill the Gap

We've all been there – those dreaded slow content months where inspiration seems to vanish into thin air and engagement levels hit a plateau. But fear not, because at Evergreen Strategic Communications, we believe in turning challenges into opportunities. So, if you're stuck in a content rut with your nonprofit’s marketing, we've got your back with five creative ideas to fill that gap and keep your audience engaged.

1. Spotlight Your Volunteers: Your volunteers are the heartbeat of your organization. Take this slow content period as an opportunity to shine a spotlight on their incredible efforts and stories. Share testimonials, photos, or short videos highlighting the difference they're making in the community. Not only does this show appreciation for their hard work, but it also humanizes your organization and inspires others to get involved.

2. Share Behind-the-Scenes Content: Pull back the curtain and give your audience a glimpse behind the scenes of your nonprofit. Share stories about your team members, showcase your office space, or take them on a virtual tour of your programs and projects. Authenticity builds trust, and by letting people see the inner workings of your organization, you create a stronger connection with your audience.

3. Revamp Evergreen Content: Take a look back at your archives and identify evergreen content – pieces that remain relevant and valuable over time. Give them a refresh with updated information, new visuals, or a different perspective. Not only does this breathe new life into existing content, but it also ensures that your audience continues to find value in it.

4. Host Q&A Sessions or Webinars: Engage your audience directly by hosting live Q&A sessions or webinars on topics related to your cause. Invite experts, community members, or even your own staff to participate and share their insights. These interactive sessions not only provide valuable information but also allow you to connect with your audience in real-time, fostering a sense of community and belonging.

5. Launch a Fundraising Campaign: Slow content months are the perfect time to launch a fundraising campaign and rally support for your cause. Get creative with your approach — whether it's a peer-to-peer fundraising challenge, a virtual event, or a crowdfunding campaign. Use compelling storytelling and visuals to inspire people to donate and get involved. Remember, every dollar raised brings you one step closer to achieving your nonprofit's mission.

At Evergreen Strategic Communications, we understand the challenges nonprofit marketers face, especially during slow content months. But with a little creativity and strategic thinking, you can turn these challenges into opportunities to strengthen your organization's presence and impact.

So don't let the content lull get you down. Embrace it as a chance to try new things, connect with your audience in meaningful ways, and ultimately, make a difference in the world. Here's to filling the gap and keeping your nonprofit's content evergreen!
