Do you have a boss telling you to make everything go viral? It’s ok. This is a safe space. Upworthy returns to explain what can actually (maybe) make your content perform well (if you are lucky and strategic). We’ll share what we’ve learned about telling good stories in all forms, from Facebook videos to articles on your site. We’ll explain to your boss that if they ask you to make something go viral, they’re gonna have to send you to Hogwarts first because you aren’t magic. But most importantly, we’ll explain to your boss why telling great stories that build empathy are necessary to the rest of your organizing.
This training is ideal for those who want to learn more about strategic ways to improve your online presence, from Facebook video optimization to storytelling techniques to make challenging content accessible. And for folks who want to know how Facebook actually works. Bosses totally welcome.
I get paid to find snarky things that matter from the interwebs and share them with you. I think that is awesome. I also think the media needs to remember how to do its job. And that Jon Stewart is some sort of oracle. You can find me on Twitter, subscribe to my stuff on Facebook, and read my long winded ranting on Quora.
