HOW CAN I HELP?
An updated and polished online presence is extremely important when bringing in new followers and potential donors. The most successful organizations have up to date content on their website and clear and compelling copy on their outreach materials. Don’t have the time to work on it? That’s what I’m here for!
Images have the power to change hearts and minds, and can have a huge impact on how someone views your organization and its mission. I’m here to help you capture beautiful images for your website, social media, or outreach materials. My portfolio is available on my photography website, www.barkleyandco.com
Social Media Management
Your followers and supporters are more likely to be invested in your mission if they have an idea of what’s happening on a daily basis; they want to see their donations working in real time. Let me help you gain more followers, handle the posting, and interact with your followers so you can get back to your mission.
Content That Makes a Difference
I sincerely want to help you reach a broader audience, pull in more funding, and get the world excited about your work.
One of the best ways to do this is to share compelling content on a consistent basis -- either through imagery or text -- of the work you're doing, the problems you're solving, and the impact you're making on the planet.
I work with organizations and animal-friendly businesses on as-needed basis to provide them with the content they need; this is an option for those organizations that are currently unable to hire a full-time Staff Photographer or Digital Content Manager. I'm happy to tailor work to make it fit within each organization's/company's budget.
