    • 1. Social Media for Nonprofits<br />Silver bullet or just a bunch of hype?<br />Marc A. Pitman, The Fundraising Coach, www.fundraisingcoach.com<br />Twitter: @marcapitman<br />
    • 2. Would you help? <br />Could you tweet @aboutdotme and ask them to choose the bowtie of @marcapitman for Times Square?<br />
    • 3. There are so many pressures on nonprofits<br />
    • 4. Social media seems too good to be true!<br />Lots of options<br />
    • 5. But it can be a bit overwhelming!<br />
    • 6. Raise as much as Obama?<br />Not likely<br />You need millions of potential donors<br />AND a compelling message<br />But you can learn<br />Get emails everywhere you can<br />Study online marketing<br />And you can “stack the deck”<br />Have major givers give through social media<br />
    • 7. But isn’t Social Media Free?<br />This stuff is free, right?<br />It costs T-I-M-E<br />
    • 8. You CAN raise money online<br />Some are making money<br />$500,000 in 1 dayMarch 24, 2011<br />$30,000 around Mother’s Day 2011<br />

    • 10. More listening<br />Even Red Box is doing it<br />
    • 11. Have fun with it<br />(It’s not what you think…)<br />
    • 12. Twitter<br />More good social media<br />Listen, engage, explore<br />
    • 13. Twitter Ideas <br />Use it to be succinct<br />140 characters (really only 120 if want RTs)<br />Create donor list<br />Share their stuff<br />Promote others in your cause space<br />Participate in Twitter chats like #smnpchat#blogchat #fundchat<br />
    • 14. An example of a Twitter List<br />You can see my other lists on the rights<br />
    • 15. Twitter does increase fundraising<br />Blackbaud study shows Twitter increases resulsts<br />
    • 16. Facebook <br />Be sure to be involved personally first<br />Find out what bugs you, what attracts you<br />
    • 17. Facebook <br />Huge audience: over 600 million people<br />Yes, Virginia, your donors are on FB<br />Huge time on site: >50% of Americans spend at least an hour on FB a week<br />
    • 18. Facebook Ideas <br />Set up a FB page<br />The ONLY place for organizations<br />Experiment with posts<br />Keep track of FB Insights (analytics)<br />Set up “secret” groups<br />Maybe with like causes to RT their stuff<br />
    • 19. A nonprofit FB page<br />Be sure to watch John Haydon’s webinars on customizing. (One is in 501MissionPlace.com)<br />

    • 21. A secret FB group<br />Sorry, I can’t show you…it’s secret<br />
    • 22. LinkedIn<br />LinkedIn, the little engine that could<br />
    • 23. LinkedIn Idea<br />Experiment with setting up appointments through LinkedIn<br />Use LinkedIn for donor research<br />How do they describe themselves?<br />Use the “Answers” tool <br />
    • 24. LinkedIn Answer <br />Can be related to your cause or not!<br />
    • 25. Google+<br />Awesome potential for nonprofits<br />
    • 26. Google+ Ideas<br />Follow interesting people<br />New search features help you find them!<br />Notice how people interact differently<br />Answers tend to be fuller & use more media<br />Experiment with Hangouts<br />Lots of potential here for nonprofits<br />
    • 27. Example of a Google+ Hangout<br />Now you can also:<br />Broadcast your hangout (so 10 interact but many more can see)<br />Name your Hangout (something that fits your organization)<br />Share screen or collaborate on Google Docs<br />
    • 28. How do we organize all this?<br />I love HooteSuite, others like TweetDeck<br />HootSuite allows you to see all of this in one place (almost all, not Google+ yet)<br />Lists<br />Searches _ particularly FB searches<br />

Measuring Success<br />URL shorteners (ie. bit.ly)<br />Can track clicks<br />Google Analytics<br />See if social media is driving traffic to your site (that is the point after all)<br />Services like Flowtown can show where your donors are<br />If you have emails. You have emails, right?<br />
    • 34. Email IS social media<br />Email is social media. It’s the grand daddy.<br />And in my tests, is far more responsive<br />
    • 35. Tough times are hear to stay<br />Times are tough. And will be fore a while longer.<br />
    • 36. Not a silver bullet<br />But not a bunch of hype either<br />
