  • Welcome. This is the very session for this project and I’m thrilled that you have decided to participate in this learning journey. I look forward to learning a lot from you. Today’s call is an orientation to the program and an opportunity for you to ask questions.Give my gratitude the The David and Lucile Packard Foundation for supporting this project and my work …
  • Every few minutes as we get started, tech support reminder, type into the chat, roll call
  • Because this is our first call, I’m going to run down the names of the organizations and have everyone say their name – so we can hear each other’s voices. I won’t be doing this for every call – we will get into grove where you should arrive 5-10 minutes early and announcement yourself. If you arrive after the call is underway, let us know you are hear by using the chat.

Today’s call is an orientation to the program and an opportunity for you to ask questions.Give my gratitude the The David and Lucile Packard Foundation for supporting this project and my work …
  • Here’s a little bit about me – blogger, author, trainer.A lot of my work lately has been designing and facilitating peer learning networks about becoming networked nonprofits and social media– the photo there is a cluster of Packard Fdn. Grantees that focus on family planning … I was in Delhi in June for the start up – an intensive boot camp, followed by remote assistance. There’s were great lunches there, so to avoid people falling asleep … I made them move. The hotel had beautiful three story staircase and they had do laps … so if you do training – incorporating movement and interaction helps people learn and we’re going to do a lot of that today!
  • This is our agendaRoll CallThe 7 Steps of Measurement: OverviewTechniques for Identifying Success and Getting Consensus On MeasurementAction Learning Projects: What is your idea for an Action Learning ProjectReflectionNext SessionHomework from Last CallReview your CWRF Assessment and the information on your wiki profile pageWrite in your Wiki JournalWhat area of practice do you want to improve and how could that be part of your action learning project?What small measurement project would help your organization create a measurement habit?What is your initial idea for an action learning project? – we’ll pause along the way for questions.
  • I was lucky enough to discuss this with the Packard Foundation evaluation team … the advice I got was that this was reasonable measurement …The first outcome is more of an activity – I’ve found that if participants do the work, they improve their skillsBased on my experience 50% is a reasonable completion rateI am also hoping to capture 6 case studies – that illustrate the work we’ve done that can be shared on my blog and presenting during our learning culmination call or along the way. This is where the office hours come in …I’m using a process called “Baseline” – so I establish where you all are at the beginning and then I do the same survey at the end and compare. This is not necessarily a beginner approach …. The baseline is based on the CWRF and I’ve been working on over several years, testing and reiterating – many thanks to Packard Foundation’ s support to do this .. This year trying to quantify the transformation in skills or knowledge.The measures need to further validating, so we’re still testing.One thing I should note, is that measures are not a report card for you .. If you got 1.2 on something and ended up with 1.5 – that’s progress … it doesn’t matter that someone else got a 2.1 .. So the numbers are not value judgements.What this does give me a benchmark for the group, helps me customize the content, etc.
  • These are the measurement indicators that were on the baseline survey and have been used to guide the content of the peer learning groupsBut since the focus is on improving your measurement skills, I’m only go to measure and report on the three measurement indicators …….
  • Each session will include the following related to each best practice: Framework Examples Additional How To Resource Wiki will have links and resources as well as links to notes from call Hub for Journals and Over the Shoulder Learning Wiki will be updated with resources suggested or used by participants during the calls or office hours
  • http://www.bethkanter.org/success-social/Our book introduces nonprofits to the 7 steps of measurement – steps that can be used to measure anything.  How did your organization apply it to social media measurement?Working on the 7 steps of measurement is still an ongoing process for us! While we have articulated our main goal and identified our stakeholders, we are still actively exploring what kind of investment we can make and what various benchmarks mean to us and more importantly what we should do with the numbers we collect. We have realized that without a large budget and stringent privacy restrictions regarding Google analytics, it will take us more time to accomplish the final steps.Who was at the meeting that led to the white board brainstorm?Our brainstorming session included our three-member communications team and our Development Director. One of the many important lessons the ACLU-NJ has gleaned from the “The Networked Non-Profit” and “Measuring The Networked Nonprofit” is the benefit of involving outside staff members in communications-related decision making.  By involving other staff members in communications-related decisions, we have been able to increase their investment in messaging and the collaboration process has become more dynamic.What questions did you ask?  What prep did you do?During our brainstorming session we posed such questions as, “What is the point of using social media?” “What are our goals with social media?” “Who is our audience and who do we want them to be?” and “Who are the ACLU-NJ’s stakeholders?”   These questions were submitted to the brainstorming team the day beforehand so each person had time to reflect. While each question was discussed at some point during the session, the team also made a concerted effort to not strictly adhere to an outline.What was easy about defining success?  What was hard?Defining success became easy once the team got over the hurdle of thinking too narrowly. Our first thought was something along the lines of, success means: “3,000 twitter followers by the end of the year” or “A Facebook post with 25 likes.” But once we began to look at the bigger picture, defining success in regards to online engagement became an exciting wish list that after reviewing it seems very possible!   Our  initial list looked something like this, although the next step is proritize it.CultivateEducateConvert —>  loyaltyInfluence —> take actionInspireMotivateClarifyLearn (about followers)ShareStarting ConversationsGrowth organization/membershipWhat is your measurement pilot?We haven’t launched a major social media campaign since our brainstorming session but are planning to develop a measurement pilot the next time we execute our semi-annual cartoon caption contest or a Facebook campaign involving one of our legal cases.What advice would you give to others?Our main advice to others is to create an environment in which each participant is free to speak candidly and without the fear of going off topic. Once we accomplished this, ideas began to bounce back and forth and a major development/communications multimedia campaign was created!   By the time we walked out of the room, we had at least 3 good and easily achievable ideas that we were all very excited about implementing. We will continue to have these brainstorming sessions every few months to focus on best practices for our organization to measure data and to have frank discussions about how social media can help our organization’s mission.

  • Having people know we existThat we are a non-profitMSI serves all levels of income students – and lots of them: more than 50,000 a year.Only behind Cal Academy and Monterey Bay for number of students served per year.We have public programs throughout the yearHow are we going to measure this?Survey online and at Earth Day on the BayWhy do we want people to know these things?If more people know we exist, more people will pursue using our programs (telling their teachers, coming to events), more people will donate, and potentially get involved in a Capital Campaign in the future to secure a permanent location.Increasing Sharable Comments:For Earth Day on the Bay specifically, this will help us create a ‘buzz’ for the event. This spreads awareness about MSI. Also will lead to more higher participation in the event (goal of 2000 participants, compared to 1500 for the past two years).How are we going to measure this?Count how many shares result from FB posts associated with Earth Day on the Bay.Blog posts count the shares.Count click through from FB to blog, and vice versa.Constant Contact forwards to a friendWeb Site – email ‘tell your friend’ generator – we can count the clicks on that function.Survey: ‘how did you hear?’, ‘did you attend’ have one online, and at the event.Why do we want these things?More buzz leads to more support for MSI: greater event participation, program bookings, donations, and future support.

    21. 21. Action Learning Project: Living Case Study Measuring the Nonprofit Network Peer Group Notes: For this project, we are thinking we may focus on increasing our number of online subscribers via a series of deals/promotions that tie into SSIRs 10th anniversary. The project would begin in late February and run through mid-May, with 1 deal per week (10 total) that we share only on social media. This sparks some new questions, including: Do we run the same promotions across all four of our social media platforms? To experiment with measurement, should we run each deal twice with different wording/different launch times to compare the effectiveness of the messaging? Are there creative ways to tap into new audiences/readers via social media apart from broadcasting the deals?
