MEDIA SHARING Two of the most active areas of Clout’s social media optimization for CanILF are the photo and video spaces. The Foundation’s supporters react best to messaging that can show them the Foundation’s work. Our efforts have resulted in thousands of views of our photos and videos to date; in turn, this has significantly helped to raise awareness about CanILF, as evident in traffic to the Foundations site from photos and videos.

“Clout Marketing has established a presence for the Canadian International Learning Foundation throughout the full spectrum of social media. In a remarkably short period of time, Clout has helped the Foundation to reach tens of thousands of potential supporters, establish and grow our Twitter presence to more than 3,000 followers, and dramatically increase traffic to our web site. Clout has also helped the Foundation to integrate social media into our overall donor outreach strategy. Thanks to Clout, our supporters have the ability to interact with us as much or as little as they choose, which helps ensure that they neither feel overwhelmed nor uninformed by the amount of information available. We never imagined that we would have this kind of flexibility in interacting with our donor base. The social media marketing strategies implemented by Clout have generated immediate benefits. Several of our partner organizations have referenced social media when asked how they learned of the Foundation. Further, many organizations respond positively when we note our ability to publicize potential partnerships via our well-established social media presence. Client Testimonial
Social media has become an integral part of our strategy to market the Foundation and raise awareness regarding the needs and accomplishments of our partner schools in the developing world. • Perhaps most impressive has been Clout’s level of professionalism, understanding and communication. Through all stages of the process, I have felt as though they have fully understood the Foundation’s mandate, as well as our immediate and long-term needs. I have the utmost confidence in Clout’s ability to publish material in the Foundation’s name, knowing that they will respect, maintain and improve our reputation, which is perhaps the most valuable asset of any charity. • Clout has played an integral role in the Canadian International Learning Foundation’s growth from a newly established charity to a respected grassroots non-government organization, and will play an equally important role in making us a household name. I would recommend Clout’s services to anyone who is interested in social media, buzz-marketing, and cutting-edge advertising strategies.” • Ryan Aldred, President and FounderThe Canadian International Learning Foundation (CanILF)
