    • Activity Fun!
      Discuss with each other your organizations goals
      How are you mapping it out?
      What tools are you using?
    • Who? What? When? Where? Why?
      Who will post online?
      What will we post to meet our goals
      When will we post: x hours daily / weekly / monthly
      Where will we post?
      Why are we posting there?
    • Ok, I’m online, now what?
      • “It’s important to think of these social media channels as tools to communicate in a social manner rather than the end in and of itself—in other words, social media is the journey, not the destination.” (Source: Idealware PDF “Social Media Decision Guide” page 8.)
      • Create an online social media policy.
      • “Guidelines: This section should be one or more pages that summarizes how your organization can be more effective at using social media. It should not be about control, but more on how to use the tools effectively. It should lay out parameters around organizational and personal use. ”  
      • “Manual: This section refers to your social media plan, includes best practices on using social media with specific examples. Many organizations use it as part of their training. ”

    • Why Another Policy?
      • Control the fears mentioned earlier
      • Be proactive for legal reasons

      • Does your organization have a policy? What examples have you seen and liked?
    • Search Engine Optimization
      What is it?
      Search Engine Optimization or SEO
      is optimizing your presence online so
      when someone searches for your name,
      you’re top on the list.
      How do I use it?
      Search engines like Google, Yahoo and
      etc. rank your website and presence online based on
      keywords and originality of content.
      Long & descriptive headlines are considered more important to search engines.

      Make it donor friendly.

      • How can it create more of a relationship?
      • What are some of your favorite websites and why?
    • If you don’t have a resources for videos, but you have a staff of writers, create a blog!
      A site to provide commentary, stories, or a personal diary.
      Allowing readers to leave feedback is extremely important to build better relationships and listening
