Product description

From the Inside Flap

There are a lot of books about social media strategy, engagement, and listening--but this isn't one of them! Destined to be the most dogeared book on your desk, 101 Social Media Tactics for Nonprofits features 101 take-action plans that anyone managing or supporting a social media program for nonprofits can start using today--and most of the featured resources are free!

Authors Melanie Mathos and Chad Norman--both seasoned nonprofit social-medialites--divide each of the 101 digital-age tactics into five key categories: setup, communicate, engage, fundraise, and measure. Tactics include quick, easy-to-follow steps and tools you'll need to implement them. Plus, many of the 101 entries include "A Closer Look" highlighting how leading nonprofit professionals around the world--including Oxfam, charity: water, Red Cross, Greenpeace, March of Dimes, and many others--are leveraging social media to engage constituents, communicate their cause, and deliver on their mission.

Ready to get connected with a bigger, more interactive audience? Here are just some of the 101 social media tactics you can get started with right now:

  • Brand your YouTube channel
  • Claim your venue on foursquare
  • Connect with the top tweeters in your area
  • Make your tweets retweetable

They do this with a commonsense, tactical approach to using social media to do everything from raising thousands of dollars to recruiting thousands of volunteers. All backed up with real-world nonprofit case studies. So what are you waiting for? This is your playbook for success."
