Millenial Donor Report, research conducted by the folks at Johnson Grossnickle & Assoc. This online study of nearly 3,000 20-35 year-olds revealed that Millenial donors thrive in online and mobile environments, but they are still driven by personal relationships and human connections.
If you’re going to motivate a community to do what you want, you need to have a strong sense of what exactly it is that you want. The first step is to write out goals for your social media presence. (We as communicators owe it to the people we serve to have a plan and strategy!)
These core points are relevant on a meta (big picture) scale – you should be able to answer these questions with any of your messaging, but also on a micro, per-post level, you should be addressing these key points
I realize that none of that was the sexy stuff, that you’re ready to move on to tangible ideas and not the basics, but a LARGE number of the people who engage with us on Facebook never get to this point, so I’m driving it home. You need to have a plan!
