Volunteers often help keep the doors open and enable progressive organizations to deliver vital programs and real change. They are at the core of the grassroots actions, lend their expertise on the board of directors, to fundraising campaigns and special events, and often work in direct activism-related roles.

Social Marketing Tools

We live in a «new era of digital activism«. Progressive leaders and progressive activists need to become experts in «social marketing» learning how to deliver strong messages and how to use social media and other platforms in mobilizing public opinion to support the causes we stand for.

Change.org. Chose a target, make a petition, and send it to your friends. If they get traction, Change.org has staff that can provide support. (They also have org accounts, that allow groups to do branded pages and export contact info of signers.)

Contact Congress – Send emails to members of the US Congress. This was developed by EFF as an open-source project. They use it for their own campaigns internally. There is also a hosted version run by Fight for the Future.

While most popular social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are owned by big tech, they are still useful tools in growing our progressive movement.

The Activist Handbook, in their guides, explains how to set up your socials to mobilize and engage people for your cause, while being critical of so-called ‘clicktivism’.

They talk about how to use these platforms effectively for outreach and promotion of protest actions. In addition, they give practical advice on how to work around censorship and shadow bans.

With users spread out over so many different platforms, it can be hard to create good content for all, especially for small to medium-sized progressive movements. Social media management tools can help you work more efficiently:

  • Facebook Business Suite: A free tool developed to manage your Facebook and Instagram profiles in one dashboard.
  • Buffer
  • Hootsuite
  • Sprout Social

Graphic design: Creating visually attractive imagery is a great way to illustrate your message:

  • Pablo by Buffer: it’s the one we prefer. Easy to use and manage.
  • Canva: also very friendly and not expensive
  • Adobe Illustrator & Adobe Photoshop
  • Sketch
  • Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo

Making Videos: By publishing promotional videos for your actions on social media and recording your protests, even people who are outside your direct circle will be able to get to know your movement:

  • iMovie: very easy to use
  • Davinci Resolve (free version is enough)
  • Adobe Premier Pro and Final Cut Pro
  • Vegas Pro

Podcasts: Publish your audio recordings with one of these tools. Podcasts are a great way to convey your message in a personal way:

  • Free: Spotify Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Suncloud
  • Premium: Simplecast
  • Self hosted: Podlibre

As the world increasingly moves online, more and more progressive activists are using live streaming to reach larger audiences and get their message out. While live streaming can be a great way to connect with supporters, it also comes with its own set of challenges.
