Social Media Best Practices for Nonprofits

Date/Time Wednesday, April 27, 12n-1pm ET  

Social media can transform the way your nonprofit:

  • raises money
  • builds awareness about its cause
  • advocates
  • fundraises
  • mobilizes

But which medium works best for each purpose? Should you be using Facebook or LinkedIn? What about YouTube? Each has strengths, each has weakness.

Back by popular demand, Ventureneer's free webinar, Social Media Best Practices for Nonprofits, uses the real-life experiences of social media power-users to show you how to decide which social media are best for your nonprofits.

Learn how to use social media to get the most bang for your time and effort. Social media are not created equal: Some are dynamite for advocacy, not so good for researching potential board members. Another may be great for getting answers to questions but not so good for fundraising.

You need to know which is which to develop an effective social media campaign.

Just ask the power-users who manage their media effectively. That's what we did, in our survey Nonprofits and Social Media: It Ain't Optional! It's from these successful nonprofit users of social media that we derived the best practices you'll learn in this online seminar.

The class will be taught by Geri Stengel, social media expert and Ventureneer founder. She’ll show you how to focus your time on what really matters:

  • knowing whom you want to reach
  • what you want to accomplish
  • which social media do this best
  • how to measure effectiveness

During this free, one-hour webinar, you will learn how nonprofits have made social media work for them in various situations. This isn’t theory: Geri will have real-life case studies and practical solutions to problems that nonprofits deal with everyday.

Like all Ventureneer classes, you won't be overwhelmed with techno-babble and you'll be able to ask questions. You'll leave understanding your social media options and how they can work for you.

Who Should Attend?

 Nonprofit staff at all levels of communications, marketing, development, public relations and programs departments.
