Connect your members closer to you and let even more people benefit from your work
Case studies Riding therapy, festival, sports event, cafe or something completely different.If you work with people with developmental disabilities, both you and your members can benefit from an online community on the social platform kazboo.
Here we have collected a few case studies for you, so that you can be inspired.
Festival and music events
Café and Clubs
Handicapped riding and riding therapy take place in different ways around the country.It could be that you have one class a week, or it could be that handicap riding is what you do all the time.Introducing the app’s members to your place, your horses, your helpers and how it’s done not only gives peace of mind and inspiration to those who already use your service, but also to future riders and to all those who lovehorses, but do not have the opportunity to participate in riding where they live.
Online you can teach:
How to groom a horse
How to approach a horse the right way
How to give a horse a treat
Therefore, a helmet is required
What clothes to wear
Anatomy of the horse
How to prepare for the first time you go to riding therapy
Exercise that is good for the body when you start riding lessons
Online you can tell:
The story of each individual horse.It’s name, favorite food and its special features etc.
Why and how to do riding and therapy
Who your normal customers are
All the practical things like parking, price, toilet conditions, with or without a helper
Online you can show:
A ride filmed from the rider’s perspective (camera on the helmet), so the spectator gets the experience from the right angle and at the right pace
Where does it all take place?
How does it look?
Who are you and your employees?
What to expect the first time
How to volunteer
And the list could go on and on. In kazboo, you can have your own community of people with developmental disabilities, who all have an interest in horses and a need for your knowledge and your service.You can help them cultivate their interest online.
And you will also have the opportunity to get to know some of them offline when they come for riding therapy with you.
Festival and music events
A music festival or event can benefit so much from having an online community, even if the event only happens once a year.
It’s one thing that you engaged the participants at the event itself, but with an online community you can stay in touch with the participants throughout the year, attract new ones and keep your audience excited and warm until the next event.You can also benefit from getting in much closer contact with your participants and learn from them what they want for your next event.
By raising awareness of your activity before, during and after it takes place, you can keep your audience and users engaged in the very work you do.This makes it much easier for you the next time you have to hold an activity.Now you are already good friends with a great many of those who are going along.
Before the event In your online community in kazboo, you can reach more people who can become participants in your activity.You tell the members about the music, the space, the tickets, where the food stalls are, who is the speaker, when the space opens, etc.
As part of kazboo, you have a special invitation QR code that you can use in your material to invite participants in and follow your online community.When they follow you, they will automatically receive the information that comes from you.
During the event Being active in your online community while the activity is being held always works well as an engagement builder for those who would have liked to participate but couldn’t make it this time.
If you do this, those who are not participating can see how exciting the activity is and be inspired to participate next time.And those who participate may even see a picture of themselves.It creates joy and gives unity.
It can be a few pictures, a short video with atmosphere and/or interviews with artists and participants.
We have made your back-office as easy for you to use as possible, so it is not a task that takes a long time.
After the event Picking up the activity when it is finished provides good engagement from the participants.And that commitment can be worth its weight in gold for you.
You can get feedback directly from the participants about what they thought of the event, which can make it even better next time.You can create different polls, posts where they can give their opinion, or encourage them to send you a message.The more you get to know from them, the better an event you can make next time.
It is also a great opportunity to say thank you to the participants, praise them for their good mood and tell them when the next activity will take place.
You are already in the process of building a good community around you, your activities and your organization, and you can continuously drip content into the social platform, where you show what happens behind the scenes, which artists have said yesto be involved, show the new garbage system, hold competitions, show which merchandise you can buy, where the toilets are, etc.
If you want to take a closer look at how an online presence in the community can benefit your festival or music event, we have written much more about why and how a friendship account can do just that.
Café and Clubs
Clubs and cafes run by and used by people with developmental disabilities will experience a good synergy by having an online community in kazboo.
Quite a lot of socializing and activity offers offer good deals and activities that you can participate in. But you have to know that they exist.And you also have to have the courage to show up if you have no one to accompany you.
An online community can also create even greater engagement among the current users, and they will experience a greater sense of belonging if they are engaged with the socializing offer online.If you offer walking and photo groups, creative workshops, games club and food club, Christmas haircuts and everything in between, show users what it is, how it takes place and who is involved.Tell us about the upcoming activities, who has the top score in bingo, how a talent night goes and how to join in all the good activities you offer.
With an online community in kazboo, you can talk to exactly the right users of your particular offer.And maybe you can even help those who can’t get there themselves by getting one of your current users to accompany them.A video about which stop to get off at and which door to enter can also be of great help to someone visiting for the first time.
If you go on trips, you can remind the participants that they must bring rain gear and packed lunches.You can ask how they would most like to celebrate Christmas lunch and what activities you should do together.Polls, quizzes, funny posts, prompts, encouragement and information.You can give all that to your members through an online community in kazboo.
It provides conversation, communication and a sense of togetherness when we bring an online community into play for a get-together and activity offer.
New users can more easily get in direct contact with you and ask all the questions they are burning with.You can collect them over time and make a “question and answer” tutorial on your page.
It can also be an interaction between the users and the meeting offer to create content for the online community.Users can make movies, photos, podcasts and audio recordings for the benefit of everyone.
When there is no opening in the meeting offer, you can keep in touch with your users through private messages, posts on your page, online activities and even competitions.
Organizations we welcome in the online community Do you or your organization work with?
