Fall 2010

November 23rd, 2010

A popular principle used by social media enthusiasts goes like this “when you decide to go fishing, you go where the fish are“. My fall newsletter is about making conscious choices to engage your constituents using social media.

This fishing metaphor is becoming more relevant as non profits are increasingly recognizing that their constituents, including users, supporters, partners, donors and staff are forming relationships and conducting business online. These groups are going where the fish are and are going prepared.

I believe organizations that adopt social media thinking and tools create stronger relationships with their stakeholders. Helping non profits develop their online strategy and policies, selecting the right social media tools, training staff to manage the organization’s web presence are a few of the key building blocks I apply in my work with non profits.  If you would like to learn more about my services, please give me a call. You can see a listing on my recent and current projects on my web site.
