Webinar Description

In the wake of pandemic closures, sites across the country have pivoted to providing more digital content to engage their audiences online. And while some sites have the resources and expertise to easily create virtual content, it can be a struggle for those trying this out for the first time. Join staff from the Idaho State Historical Society as they share how they look through the lens of their own organization to spot pitfalls in content creation and how they've learned to pool resources, establish processes, and prioritize quality. They will explore techniques to develop consistent language and tone in marketing material, as well as cover the nuts and bolts of necessary equipment, personnel, and skills needed to produce great content that fits your mission and reaches your community.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn about the potential pitfall when creating digital content
  • Understand the importance of establishing processes when creating digital content
  • Understand how to start creating digital content at your organization
