Social Media Workshop for Non Profits

  1. 1. THE SO-WHAT ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA September 2010 Brent MacKinnon Mark Holmgren 1
  2. 2. INTENT Clarify the relationship of social media to marketing and organizational goals. Discuss how to use social media to engage audiences in social conversations and to what end. Introduce the various types of social media and determine target audience focus. Demonstrate various common social media (such as blog, twitter, facebook, YouTube and Flickr) and their applications. 2
  3. 3. “Conversations among the members of your marketplace happen whether you like it or not. Good marketing encourages the right sort of conversations.” – Seth Godin, Seth’s Blog “Quit counting fans, followers and blog subscribers like bottle caps. Think, instead, about what you’re hoping to achieve with and through the community that actually cares about what you’re doing.” – Amber Naslund, Social Media Today 3

  5. 5. Objections to Social Media  I suffer from information overload already.  So much of what's discussed online is meaningless.  I don't have the time to contribute and moderate  Our stakeholders don't use this stuff, the learning curve limits its usefulness to geeks.  Communicators [bloggers, tweeters] are so fickle, better to stay unengaged than risk random brand damage. We don't want hostile comments left about us on any forum we've legitimized. 5 Marshall Kirkpatrick
  6. 6. Objections to Social Media  Traditional media and audiences are still bigger, we'll do new stuff when they do.  There are so many tools that are similar, I can't tell where to invest my time so I don't use any of it at all.  That stuff's fine for sexy brands, but we sell unsexy stuff and are known for stability more than chasing the flavor-of-the-month. We're doing just fine with the tools we've got, thanks. 6 Marshall Kirkpatrick
