Social Media, Social Good

Join Social Media Club Niagara on Tuesday, November 22 from 5pm to 7pm at Chateau des Charmes for our panel discussion on Social Media, Social Good. 

Consumers now expect companies to be socially responsible and social media has made it possible for them to partner with non-profits to access a huge pool of prospective donors and volunteers.   Come to our November meeting to hear from Niagara companies and individuals who are using social media to raise money and awareness in unique ways.

Some Social Good stats to think about:

From the Edelman Worldwide Good Purpose Study (Nov 2010) 

62% say that “I would switchbrands if a different brand of similar quality supported a good cause.” 

62% say that “I would help a brand to promote their products or services if there is a good cause behind them.”

71% believe brands and consumers could do more to support good causes by working together.
64% believe it is no longer enough for corporations to give money; they must integrate good causes into their everyday business.

61% have abetter opinion of corporations that integrate good causes into business, regardless of why they do so.

We would like to thank Chateau des Charmes for once again hosting SMC Niagara.  We appreciate their support and sponsorship of SMC Niagara.
