Nonprofits waste time by using social media ineffectively. This webinar will increase the social media IQ of nonprofits and save them time and money.
New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) February 02, 2011
Join in the spirit of social media week by signing up for Ventureneer's free webinar on best practice guidelines for nonprofits who use social media. The webinar is based on what successful nonprofit users are doing. Nonprofit leaders can learn those guidelines in Ventureneer's free webinar, Social Media Best Practices for Nonprofits. In the webinar, nonprofit leaders will learn how to get the best results with each medium.
The guidelines are based on survey results, available for free, in a downloadable e-book on best practices for nonprofits using social media. Both the e-book and the webinar help nonprofits decide which social media will be best for their cause and their project.
The information has been so well received that this is the third time the webinar has been held. The encore webinar will take place Wednesday, February 9, from 12n-1pm ET and will be taught by Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer and an oft-cited social media expert.
"Nonprofits waste time by using social media ineffectively. This webinar will increase the social media IQ of nonprofits and save them time and money," Stengel said.
In the class, she’ll show nonprofits how to focus time on the factors that matter:
*What is the organization’s target market?
*What does the organization wants to accomplish?
*Which social media do this best?
*How can effectiveness be measured?
It's a bit like Marketing 101, but knowing the basics is the key to selecting the social medium that will get the job done and integrating social media into an organization's overall development plan.
This isn’t theory. Stengel will have real-life case studies and practical solutions to problems that nonprofits deal with every day, in every marketing decision.
The online seminar will be useful to all levels of marketing and development staff who may be involved in planning or implementing social media strategy.
Because nonprofits are just beginning to learn about and use social media, and because social media can do so much for nonprofits, Ventureneer has also created a one-stop resource to keep up on trends, tools, and tips.
