Using social media for your non-profit or cause
The December 9th topic is going to be a discussion about how local non-profits are leveraging social media to engage consumers and drive profits, donations or otherwise, for their organizations.
Social Impacts Go Well Beyond the Relationship
Like many for-profit businesses, the impacts of social media on non-profits have been far reaching. From deepening the relationships non-profits have with consumers, to engaging them with cause-related activities to hyper-localizing non-profit outreach, social media has created monumental opportunities and changes for non-profits.
Join us as we explore global, local and social media trends that are affecting non-profits in the way they connect to their consumers via the web, particularly the social web. We will discuss how non-profits are engaging on the social web, how the social web is affecting giving via social profiles or the traditional website, along with some stories of failure or success.
The session will be moderated by Michael Barber and starts at 6:30pm. Please help spread the word, and send us any questions you would like covered via Twitter @SMCPhoenix or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
