My name is Emily Koltai and I am an NDIS participant, I am 22 years old and I have just recently finished my Bachelor of Communications, majoring in Social and Digital media, at UTS. While I was at Uni I also worked for the Sydney film festival for the past 2 years working on their social media.
From studying and working for the Sydney Film Festival, I have learnt a few things of what to do and not to do when it comes to creating social media posts.
I have written this article to help people with social media who are in the NDIS space, when it comes to creating content for their facebook pages and Instagram accounts. I have put together a list of things that would be good to use in a post and things that you shouldn’t do in a post.
Short punchy captions
Engaging and inviting content e.g. videos, gifs
Use emotive language
Do funny and humorous captions
Do heart-warming and inspirational content
No long wordy captions
No long articles that you would have to read for a long period
Not too frequent heavy and serious content
Here are some examples for what to do in a post:
"What an amazing idea"! A group of people with disabilities came together to create a hip hop music video using communication devices. Take a look at this video.
“Love is in the air…. How gorgeous is this <3” Take a look at this story about a young couple who have a special night at the Debutante Ball for disability.
