While studies indicate that nonprofits are adopting social media tools at a faster rate than most Fortune 500 companies, many nonprofits are not convinced that they are using these tools in the most effective ways possible to increase awareness, donations and relationship-building.

No matter what age demographic your organization targets, every generation can now be reached through online marketing. More than half of people over the age of 65 are online, and they account for about 13% of online donation. Baby Boomers are online at work and at home and account for about half of overall online giving and GenXers are known to be highly responsive to online marketing. Of course, Milennials are the most wired generation, replacing traditional computer use with mobile

Communications. And so to reach a variety of people, you need be doing multi-channel communicating.
We have created the Social Media e-learning Suite to help you implement and integrate social media into your overall communications strategy to be confident that you are getting the most out of the most popular platforms while making use of their free resources for nonprofits.

Each of these four 90-minute e-learning sessions can stand alone but we encourage you to take the entire series to work toward an integrated social media strategy. Presenting them online will give you the opportunity to view the tools as they exist in the real world for a more impactful learning experience.

Individual Descriptions

Facebook – 81 percent of nonprofit communications professionals recognize Facebook as the most important social media tool. But having a Facebook page does not ensure that it’s fulfilling its potential as a tool for engagement, calls to action and an information channel. Whether it’s via your news feed, a fan page, charity page or group page, how do you find your authentic voice in both compelling content and images. And how do you drive people to it? Even Facebook’s own people identify that the biggest struggle nonprofits have with the platform is not understanding how to best use its tools for community engagement.
