  Centuries past, when a person wanted to publish a book, they needed to seek commitments from people to buy it before it went to print. People effectively coughed up the cash to show their support. And then the publisher would send it to print.   Crowdfunding works on similar principles. You have an idea and people ‘buy in’ to the idea, with cash, to help get it off the ground. Effectively sourcing funding from what is termed the ‘crowd’. […]

Wombat Creative was engaged by NRM North in Tasmania to lend a hand with documenting and planning for best practice engagement of rural lifestyle landholders. The first thing we found is that they’re known by so many different names it’s hard to pin them down: smallholders, blockies, urban farmers, peri-urban land managers, reechangers, down shifters, and hobby farmers. One thing we learned quickly about this audience is their sheer diversity. Not just diversity in terms of age and background and […]

We worked with communication officers from across Australia’s 56 regional natural resource management bodies to pull together a very low cost campaign. The campaign had a number of aims – to trial a collaborative approach to national communication activities, and to promote Australian Government investment in natural resource management. We facilitated meetings, documented ideas, pulled together strategies, built consensus, coordinated videos, managed social media, wrote media releases, liaised with CEOs and Chairs and kept Australian Government staff engaged in the […]

It’s hard to plan ahead for communication, because often in the not for profit sector, our communication activities are reactive. That’s the nature of our work. But we also get stuck in funding agreements or reporting requirements or even strategic plans that set targets like: deliver 10 media releases, create a website, host a major event. The first fatal flaw in most not for profit communication is that we’re so action oriented we jump straight to talking about tools, effectively […]

Social media workshops

P1040490_slim

We love social media, and we love sharing our passion with people, particularly in rural communities. Social media has so much potential to help rural communities bridge the consumer-producer divide, but only if people are actively participating. Our workshops are delivered in partnership with organisations who have appropriate facilities, ensuring at least one computer between two people and a mix of online time and interactive discussion around planning for strategic use of social media. We focus on how the power […]
