  • 12. Definition of Terms Social Media – primarily Internet-based tools for sharing and discussing information among human beings. The term most often refers to activities that integrate technology and social interaction with the construction of words, pictures, audio and video. The industry might also refer to social media as “user generated content” -wikipedia

  • 15. Well… sort of. BASED ON A PRESENTATION BY LEE WHITE Remixed from introtosocilamedia by AnnFIOPartners
  • 16. You Can’t Leverage Social Media! • The session title is a misnomer • If you are not actively involved in an online community already, you have nothing to leverage. • Donor loyalty is about you being loyal to your donors, until you can operate from that premise – your organization will not use social media effectively.

  • 20. “Your supporters are the message” -Marshall McLuhan The “medium-is-the-message” guy
  • 21. From the Cluetrain Manifesto • Conversations among human beings sound human. They are conducted in a human voice. • The Internet is enabling conversations among human beings that were simply not possible in the era of mass media. • These networked conversations are enabling powerful new forms of social organization and knowledge exchange to emerge. The Cluetrain Manifesto: The End of Business as Usual: Rick Levine, Christopher Locke, Doc Searls, David Weinberger; Perseus Books ©2000
  • 22. From the Cluetrain Manifesto • Nonprofits must talk to the people with whom they hope to create relationships. • To speak with a human voice, nonprofits must share the concerns of their communities. • If you want us to talk to you, tell us something. Make it something interesting for a change. • We have better tools, more new ideas, no rules to slow us down. We are waking up and linking to each other.
  • 23. People have now had a taste of two way conversations around your brand. They won’t wait for you to talk about you. They don’t want to listen to this… http://www.flickr.com/photos/nationaalarchief

A few quick stats… 73% of active online users have read a blog • 45% have started their own blog • 39% subscribe to an RSS feed • 57% have joined a social network • 55% have uploaded photos • 83% have watched video clips • The conversation is happening…with or without you.

Giving up control is OK. firstgiving presentation, Using social media to expand your fundraising horizons
  • 27. Let’s Consider What is Happening to Email • How many email addresses have you had? • How many do you currently have? (most people answer 3 or more) • Why do you have multiple, how is each used? • If your organization asked you for your email address, which one would you give them? Content used to “go viral” through email . Generally, people don’t use the channel that way any more.

  • 33. Quick Case in Point – open letter “advice” to the LIVESTRONG foundation •Shoot short video of Lance making specific impassioned appeal to his twitter audience.

  • 34. Quick Case in Point – open letter “advice” to the LIVESTRONG foundation •Shoot short video of Lance making specific impassioned appeal to his twitter audience. •Video needs to state a goal, ask for a specific amount, and automatically kick to a donation page with a specific, small gift pre-filled on the form. No “Click to Donate” buttons! •Ask Lance to tweet it out 6 times over 3 days varying the time of day it’s tweeted and the subject line “update” that goes with it…share progress, celebrate benchmarks, express goal, give thanks, etc. •Ask Lance to tweet as normal the rest of the day. •LIVESTRONG twitter admin needs to follow progress and thank individual donors publicly, using twitter. •Headline the next day (prediction)… @mikeyames The Pursuant Group
  • 35. Quick Case in Point – open letter “advice” to the LIVESTRONG foundation “LIVESTRONG Raises Hundreds of Thousands in Three Days Using Just Twitter” What won’t be mentioned in the headline -- the months of acquisition and cultivation work Lance Armstrong has done in the preceding months to make this solicitation effective. But… Lance Armstrong isn’t doing acquisition and cultivation. Lance Armstrong is simply in conversation with his followers. (that’s the best kind of cultivation) @mikeyames The Pursuant Group

  • 50. Share Content •Take time to create content that addresses any recurring questions your donor base is asking . This content does not necessarily need to relate directly to the mission of your organization. You are preparing content that will be genuinely helpful. •Listen for where and when your content can be used to help a conversation or answer a question. •Answer the questions by directing people to the content you have created.
  • 51. Community Building and Social Networking •Establish credibility within your engaged following network of people •Once established, the group of people you are in conversation with will begin knowing where your expertise lies. •Inviting an engaged followship into a custom social network becomes easy. Be sure to determine the kind of community or social network you open is based on the people, objectives and strategy you have established.
  • 52. Giving Up Control • The nature of social media is that not all content is precisely right, but the majority is generally right. • Not all of your interaction will be positive or favorable. • How you respond to criticism will say a lot about you and your organization. • Pick your battles and be willing to apologize when necessary. firstgiving presentation, Using social media to expand your fundraising horizons
