There’s no doubt that cat videos are all the rage online. There’s even an Internet Cat Video Film Festival. This feline obsession is for reals.
There’s something about cats that effectively mirrors the human experience. Obsession, surprise, melancholy. The cats, they know how you feel.
In this clip from the Social Good Summit, Jessica Mason from YouTube for Good explains 3 lessons non-profits can learn from cat videos:
- Tell universal stories
- Engage regularly
- Be surprising (yes, folks, this might require taking some risks and getting a little outside your comfort zone)
Taking a few lessons from cat vids might be the purrfect way to add a little mee-wow to your message.
Two quick apologies:
1. To the dog people: dogs are cool too. Totally cool.
2. Those of you who, like me, are totally allergic to cats and, therefore, get itchy just watching these vids. All in the name of making the world a better place, right?
