It’s Way More Than Facebook and Twitter: Top 10 Social Media Best Practices Every Not-For-Profit Organization Needs to Know

In a challenging economic environment, incorporating social media into the marketing mix can be a cost-effective way for not-for-profit organizations to communicate with and engage community stakeholders. Yet many organizations are paralyzed with inaction, struggling to understand why this emerging medium is relevant to their mission or how to best harness its near-limitless power. In this engaging and lively session, Nate Towne will illuminate the murky depths of social media, bringing to light the top ten social media best practices every not-for-profit organization can and should begin using today to help achieve its organizational goals.
