Social media is ALL about engagement. Your organization’s social media strategy should include an engagement strategy on every platform that adds value to your fans and creates deeper loyalty. In this webinar, we’ll take a look at Twitter, Facebook, blogs or video, and Linkedin. With deeper engagement, your supporters are much more likely to take action at your organization’s urging, share your organization’s information, donate funds, and bring their friends to your social spaces.
