    14. Organizations Going Social:
    15. WHY SHOULD I USE IT? wordle.net
    16. <ul><li>Social media allows you to effectively reach people to: </li></ul><ul><li>Establish yourself and enhance your image </li></ul><ul><li>Promote your work, group, and events </li></ul><ul><li>Build audience, donor, and stakeholder relationships </li></ul><ul><li>Develop community around your mission </li></ul><ul><li>Get immediate reviews and actionable feedback </li></ul><ul><li>Manage volunteers and staff </li></ul><ul><li>Research opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>Make money </li></ul><ul><li>… all at the low, low price of time & dedication! </li></ul>The Future is Social
    17. <ul><li>Many artists and non-profits don’t have the time or resources to invest in developing their own Web sites or social networking sites. </li></ul><ul><li>Free online tools like blog applications, content management systems, and white label social networks can help you develop a Web presence quickly, easily, and cheaply. </li></ul><ul><li>If you need to post some simple materials, and you're planning an open, collaborative outreach strategy that involves the type of people likely to be using those tools, then using those tools to create your Web presence may be a viable option. </li></ul>Be Seen: Establish a Web Presence
    18. <ul><li>Social Media is one of the best ways to advocate for and promote your organization, programs, and initiatives. </li></ul><ul><li>Microblogging platforms like Twitter and widgets like Causes in Facebook provide you with ways to quickly and easily trigger a “Butterfly Effect” that builds awareness and buzz for: </li></ul><ul><li>Calls to Action </li></ul><ul><li>Online Petitions </li></ul><ul><li>Organizational Information and Updates </li></ul><ul><li>Volunteer Recruitment and Mobilization </li></ul><ul><li>Event Attendance </li></ul>Be Heard: Advocate & Promote
    19. <ul><li>Encourage and respond to constituent feedback. </li></ul><ul><li>Social networks are a great way to get open and honest feedback. Join the conversation to: </li></ul><ul><li>Find out what people are saying about your organization </li></ul><ul><li>Correct any misunderstandings or misconceptions </li></ul><ul><li>Address any issues </li></ul><ul><li>Take steps to improve programs and services </li></ul><ul><li>Research VIPs, potential donors, employees, and others. </li></ul><ul><li>A vast amount of information about people is volunteered on social networking sites. You can use them to research: </li></ul><ul><li>The history & interests of a potential donor or Board Member </li></ul><ul><li>The background & affiliations of a potential employee </li></ul>Be Advised: Listen & Learn
    20. <ul><li>The open, participatory Web 2.0 environment encourages user contribution, natural dialogue, and relationship building. </li></ul><ul><li>Engage People to Build Your Audience and Community </li></ul><ul><li>Get to know your market by visiting sites that appeal to them. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide people with the means to easily interact with you. </li></ul><ul><li>Cultivate a habit of keeping in touch. </li></ul><ul><li>Support their interests and causes … they may return the favor. </li></ul><ul><li>As you foster greater conversation, your message spreads via viral “word of mouth,” developing Fans, Evangelists, Citizen Marketers, and Brand Ambassadors who believe in you, support you, and are happy to be independently proactive on matters related to your group. </li></ul>Be a Friend: Build Relationships
    21. HOW DO I GET STARTED? wordle.net
    22. But Really: Is 2.0 Right for You? <ul><li>Before committing resources to pursuing a social media strategy or campaign, consider and assess the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is your audience online? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How willing are you to experiment, take risks, and adapt? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Are you ready to face bad news? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do you have enough resources to pursue this? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Who will manage the strategy/campaign? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How will you incorporate it into day-to-day responsibilities? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How will you measure results? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How long are you willing to give it a try? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do you have group and/or stakeholder buy in? </li></ul></ul>
    23. Map Your Social Media Strategy <ul><li>Begin with the End in Mind </li></ul><ul><li>Clearly define your goal(s): Where are you going? How will you get there? How will you know you’ve arrived?
