Social media is no longer a nice-to-have in a well-rounded integrated fundraising program. It’s where so many potential supporters are learning about your cause, and where your current supporters keep up with your progress.
Join Brock and Holly to help you refocus your charity’s social media efforts into the areas of your program where they can have the greatest impact. This one-hour session will be fast paced but will be sure to leave time for questions and discussion.
Learning outcomes for this session include:
- Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the major social media platforms, and how to maximize their use
- Learning if, how, when, and why to say “no” to the latest viral trend
- Tips for planning your social media content to save you time
- Advice for how to make the most of giving days online
