Abstract – Social Media Marketing for Non-Profits:
Social media marketing can be a powerful tool for nonprofits. Through social media platforms, nonprofits can reach larger audiences and access more information than ever before at a low cost. Nonprofits who use social media can gain a distant advantage over those who neglect social media or do not have a proper strategy in place. This presentation will provide a framework for building your nonprofit social media strategy and planning. You will learn new ways to:
• Apply best practices for Social Media concepts to nonprofits.
• Understand strategies for using Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for nonprofits.
• Create strategies to increase your email marketing lists with people who will actively support your mission.
• Effectively recruit and retain volunteers.
• Approach requests for donations and engage corporate donors.
• Find tools and utilize platforms in ways that work for you and your organizational budget.
