  • Please remember not all of your members communicate the same way. Some like printed materials, some are tech savvy, some are not. Know your audience.
  • The first Socialnomics video was I saw was from 2009, they update it each year, and if you are into stats, the way the numbers change each year is amazing.
  • What I like about Hootsuite is that you can schedule for Twitter and Facebook through the site.
  • Carrying the GFWC Tri fold, wearing your membership pin, or a sticker on your car are still great ways to share GFWC with those you come in contact with. Also the Style book can be downloaded at GFWC.org or purchased from the marketplace.

Learn how to drive a nail first.  Relax and enjoy it all.
    13. 13. SOME IDEAS FOR GETTING STARTED Facebook:  Find out what is acceptable by your members. Make sure they are supportive and engaged.  GFWC has a great Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/GFWCMembers Look at other states: GFWC of North Carolina: https://www.facebook.com/GFWCofNorthCarolina As an Administrator, you can see the number of times someone looks at your page. As posts are “shared” and “liked” the more people see your information. Remember this is “Social” Media. “Sharing” And “Liking” (copying) are good things. Post meetings, projects and PICTURES! “Tag” people and places whenever possible The average lifespan of a post is 3-4 hours
    14. 14. FACEBOOK INFORMATION
    15. 15. SOME IDEAS FOR GETTING STARTED Twitter: Twitter is a quick fast paced 140 character information blitz! Easy explanation of Twitter: http://www.momthisishowtwitterworks.com/  GFWC has a Twitter Feed: https://twitter.com/GFWCHQ “Follow” them  Follow me: https://twitter.com/WendyJaneO  Follow organizations that your Federation or club partners with:

    17. 17. SOME IDEAS FOR GETTING STARTED Pinterest: Pinterest is a visual discovery tool that people use to collect ideas for their different projects and interests. People create and share collections (called “boards”) of visual bookmarks (called “Pins”) that they use to do things like plan trips and projects, organize events or save articles and recipes.  http://seniorplanet.org/how-to-use-pinterest-5-tips-for-getting- started/  Using Pinterest for Non-profits: http://www.nptechforgood.com/2012/04/02/five-pinterest-best- practices-for-nonprofits/  Using it for your Club: Share the recipes used at a meeting, get ideas for projects, share photos and information.  Pinterest now posts your “pins” on Facebook  You can also Tweet your “pins”
    18. 18. GFWC-NC has a GFWC Pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/gfwcnc/gener al-federation-of-womans-clubs/ These “pins” were made by using the button on the Tool bar
    19. 19. SOME IDEAS FOR GETTING STARTED YouTube: YouTube is a video-sharing website, created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005 and owned by Google since late 2006, on which users can upload, view and share videos. https://www.youtube.com/yt/playbook/getting-started.html GFWC and many State Federations and Club have videos on YouTube. Just do a search to find them. I Am GFWC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEXg59irYkY GFWC-NC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKcpjz45a20 See all of the GFWC Videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCppBpiSRzBiTsMMI3Jw85S g/videos
    20. 20. SOME IDEAS FOR GETTING STARTED Web Sites: Web sites are still great, but do cost money to build, and sometimes maintain. Some web sites are DIY models, check out Wordpress.com Blogs: Blogs can be free, or can cost. Consider creating a blog (on line diary) for your clubs homepage as a way to share news that might need more words than a “tweet” or a Facebook Post. Blogs are a form of Social media, because unlike a web site, people can leave comments on them. LinkedIn: Connect with GFWC on LinkedIn and Connect with each other. Mostly known as a business-oriented social networking service. www.LinkedIn.com
    21. 21. SOME IDEAS FOR GETTING STARTED Hootsuite: is a social media management system for businesses and organizations to collaboratively execute campaigns across multiple social networks from one secure, web-based dashboard. Hootsuite allows you to preschedule Tweets and Facebook Posts for days in advance, for up to 4 accounts FREE. If you handle more than 4 accounts the costs begin at $9.99 month. (30 day free trial) This program also provides stats and analytical reports telling you which posts were viewed and shared the most To learn more: https://help.hootsuite.com/categories/20067721-Getting- Started
    22. 22. This “tweet” was actually scheduled on June 4, 2014 Adding a “#” gives Twitter followers another way to follow an event. #gfwc2014 is the hashtag for this convention.
