Social media are powerful but sometimes confusing to the non-techie. I want nonprofit leaders to understand social media clearly and use them well.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
Nonprofits leverage their marketing efforts by adding social media to the mix. But they need to add the right social media and use best practices. Now, nonprofit leaders can learn what works and what doesn't 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 and how to avoid mistakes when getting started.
"Social media are powerful but sometimes confusing to the non-techie. I want nonprofit leaders to understand social media clearly and use them well," said Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer.
Ventureneer's guidelines are based on data from its survey Nonprofits and Social Media: It Ain't Optional. The focus of the survey results, Ventureneer's new ebook [Social Media for Your Nonprofit: Take Charge! and the webinar is the best use of each social medium, with real-life examples of how nonprofits make it work.
After attending this webinar, nonprofit leaders will be able to decide which social media will be best for their causes and will have a good idea about how to start and manage social media programs.
This is an encore webinar. It's been so well-received that Ventureneer is bringing it back for its fifth airing, on Monday, May 16, 12n-1pm ET . But it's not a rerun. It's an opportunity for a new group of nonprofit leaders to ask questions and learn from others. It will be taught by Stengel, a recognized expert on social media.
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 key to selecting the right social medium 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 involved in planning or implementing social media strategy, outreach, and development.
