Share the Love: Using Social Media to Engage Donors
March 3, 11:00 a.m. until 1 p.m., Lifelong Learning Center in Scottsburg; Presented by Steven Shattuck, Chief Engagement Officer with Bloomerang
Did you know that 53% of donors lapse because of poor donor communication? Though social media has become pervasive among nonprofits, it is still used primarily for promotion. This session will help you discover how to maximize your nonprofit’s social media accounts through thankfulness, instead of promotion. We will examine real-life examples of effective social media usage from organizations large and small, as well as the latest research into what works and what doesn’t.
