How Digital Media Has Evolved In The Nonprofit World

While back in 2000, only a few nonprofits were focusing on digital media, the general belief was “Social media isn’t for nonprofits, but for people who want to show their cats having breakfast!”

More than a decade and a half later, the field has changed completely. Nonprofits are stocking in on digital media platforms and have successfully taken up the ‘Research-fail informatively and advance approach.’ The best part? They are seeing amazing results!

Digital media platforms have not just evolved the way nonprofits work, with but also their approaches to staying functional in the long run. As the leading marketing partners with a diverse array of nonprofits in the U.S., at MLC Digital Media, here is our take on how they have evolved with digital media:
