Some great advice for nonprofits, advocates, government

While 5 Tips to Stretch Yourself Beyond Text to Tell a Story was written for journalists, the recommendations resonated with me the blogger, public policy analyst, preparer of public education materials, report writer, and advocate.   The suggestions the author describes are:
  1. Use existing code
  2. Don’t let Illustrator scare you
  3. You can learn video
  4. There are free infographic tools available
  5. Use the Internet

You don't have to do all every time, but adding video, online tools, or informative graphics can dramatically improve your call to action, blog post, report, and the like.
