Social Media for Nonprofits: How to Get It All Done!
Tue. November 12 2013
6:30pm - 8:45pm
As options for online engagement proliferate, many nonprofit organizations find it confusing to manage and effectively coordinate their messages and campaigns. This training will give participants who are working with social media and online communications a framework to evaluate different communication channels and their effectiveness for meeting organizational goals.
This training will also give participants a structure in which to think of these channels so that it no longer seems like a huge array of strangely-named tools to learn. Rather, there will be a selection of tools for an organization to choose from to successfully execute their communication goals. We'll end with some tips for using tools and time management strategies to help you get more done on social media in less time.
Come ready to interact, share your frustrations, questions and get ready to get a handle on the often overwhelming world of online communications.
