For nonprofits, LinkedIn can be a development and outreach goldmine.
LinkedIn is a no or low-cost database that can be used to:
find board members with the skills and passion you need
get that all-important introduction to someone you want to know
brainstorm with peers
find volunteers and employees
connect with community leaders
It is a tool that boards, executives, and staff must understand because e-based outreach will be the norm.
LinkedIn is the one social medium geared to business people interested in professional development and connections. It links 135 million personal profiles and more than 2 million company profiles that can be tapped according to interest, specialty, location, and background. Recently, LinkedIn has added professional staff to look after the specific needs of nonprofits.
There are also more than 80,000 LinkedIn groups focus on nonprofit issues and ideas. Their members ask and answer questions, float ideas, and engage in discussions. It’s a rich and far-reaching knowledge base.
For this webinar, we will have a panel of three LinkedIn experts who will show you the LinkedIn ropes and answer your real-life questions.
