Hello my name is David E. Bowman, and I am here today to talk about how your non-profit organization can benefit from using social media. Before I start, by show of hands how many people here have a blog? Are on Linkedin? Facebook? MySpace? Twitter? How many have heard of Twitter? Comment on forums? Visit YouTube? Rate and review products online? Social media is everywhere. It is the future of marketing and the web. The point that I am here to make today is that social media is the ideal marketing vehicle for a not for profit organization. Social media is impactful, easy to utilize, and best of all costs little or nothing. Yet, the return that can be achieved through successfully leveraging social media is unparalleled. I hope that following my presentation you will have a better understanding of what social media is, why it is important, and how you can use it as a way to build a following, engage and empower individuals, and improve the effectiveness of your organization. In short, I want to show you how you can change the world.
