Data-Backed Content Strategies for Nonprofits

A strong digital content strategy requires more than great storytelling skills — these days, editorial teams need to make sure their online content is optimized for search engines, too. SEO (search engine optimization) strategies can come across as technical or intimidating, but they don’t have to be. It’s possible to write content that works for both humans and Google robots, without sacrificing any quality in your work. SEO and content marketing strategies can be especially valuable for nonprofit organizations who need to make the most of low-cost digital marketing opportunities (because they’re free!). 

Join Whole Whale SEO experts Koby Langner and Rachel Clemens for a discussion about the role of SEO in your nonprofit content strategy. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

  • Find actionable insights from search and Organic traffic data
  • Incorporate SEO best practices into your existing content strategies
  • Leverage an SEO-driven editorial calendar at your organization
