Meeting Description:
Now that you've got a bang-up digital story in your pocket, how do you ensure that people view it? Where should you host it - YouTube, Instagram, your own website, all of the above? What tools can help you expand the reach of your meaningful storytelling for change? And are there strategies to optimize making sure it gets noticed?
 
Nonprofits, libraries, foundations, and individuals can leverage these channels to get the word out about their work, and help inspire action!
 
Join us on Wednesday, September 10 at 11 a.m. Pacific time (2 p.m. Eastern) to learn which tools and strategies can help you promote your digital stories for good!
 
We'll be joined by Bailey Rosser an audience development strategist at YouTube, who writes the YouTube Creator Playbook to help advise video creators on how to improve their reach and impact across YouTube. Bailey will speak to ways you can optimize your video's reach, fine-tune your channel, and make people want to click on your video. 
 
We'll also hear from Kimberly Bryant, who is the Founder and Executive Director of Black Girls CODE, a nonprofit organization dedicated to introducing girls of color (ages 7-17) to the field of technology and computer programming with a concentration on entrepreneurial concepts.
