Charity adverts are a powerful medium for generating funds and promoting your message. A charity advert secures donations that allows for life-changing results.
How to promote your charity using video
There are different ways to use video for charities. Here are some of the most popular:
Charity stories: A charity story is a great way to explain the charity’s purpose to the public. It can also give them an insight into the work that you do. This type of video can be particularly effective in driving donations.
Fundraising videos: These are a more targeted way of using video. They focus on a specific call to action, such as asking viewers to donate or sign up for an event.
Awareness videos: These videos increase awareness of the charity amongst the public. The charities can use them to highlight issues they are working to address or share stories about people the charity has helped.
Take the first step towards reaching your audience. Use this form and seize the opportunity to elevate your appeal and grow your reach.

Why video works so well for charities
Video is a compelling medium because it can tell stories in a way that engages viewers on an emotional level. This is particularly important for charities, as potential donors need to connect to the cause.
Video is also a very shareable medium, which means members of the public amplify the charity’s message. Seeing a charity video promoted on a friend’s social feed is a strong trust indicator.

Charity Advertising on TV
TV advertising can be a cost-effective solution to reaching a wider audience when raising funds or promoting a cause. Having a media plan favouring the cheaper advert slots and using digital channels can ensure your advertising spend is used wisely. TV advertising has mass appeal, while other advertising mediums might seem appealing, TV is a tried and tested platform that builds trust and puts your message on the big screen.
The use of advertising on TV to promote charities is on the rise in the UK. This increase can be attributed to several factors, such as the growth of digital channels and changes in how people consume media. Watching TV and using a mobile device, called second screening, means DRTV adverts can drive instant responses from viewers.
Aids Alliance TV Advert
Aids Alliance decided to use shock tactics in this unique advert for its Valentine’s message. The theme delivered in the advert is a serious one but the way the advert handles the subject makes for an unforgettable commercial. This charity advert was successful because of the online advertising it gained from being talked about by celebrities online. This advert is an excellent example of how to buck the trend when it comes time to promote your charity event.
How to promote your charity using video
Charity advertising can be a powerful medium for generating funds and keeping your function in the public’s mind. A charity advert can secure donations that will allow a charity to deliver life-changing assistance.
Running a charity is a difficult blend between making sure the charity is successful and always keeping the charity’s goal in sight. The best outcome for most charities is that they are no longer needed. Unfortunately, this rarely happens, and charities need funds to keep helping.
Emotive Charity Advertising
Using TV advertising to spread the word about a charity has to be handled with skill. Viewers are growing tired of watching charity adverts filled with shocking images. Making people feel guilty about not helping is another technique that grates with viewers.
You need to make sure your TV advert stands out from the crowd. There are several techniques to achieve this. Deliver a clear message, be single-minded about what you’re saying, and don’t clutter your advert. Use humour or surprise to cement your message in the viewer’s mind. Please don’t follow the lead of others; it’s best to create your message.
