“Clean your room, please. Hey, clean your room. Did you clean your room? CLEAN YOUR ROOM!!!” If you have kids, you know the struggle of trying to get them to take action. You often need to repeat yourself multiple times — sometimes loudly. You know they heard you, they just aren’t responding.

People Together-8.jpgSocial Media is a place where you (and your non-profit) meet your friends, catch up, and say hello. One of the advantages to much of social media is that it is so informal. This is great, but that does not mean a non-profit does need to do some serious work on social media.

Today, the StayClassy blog posted some great ideas on ways to use social media. You can check out the blog here: http://www.classy.org/blog/social-media-strategies-nurture-relationships/

“Social Media Benchmark Study’s 2012 results claimed that nonprofits only allocated 1/4 of one full-time person to social media marketing. Case Foundation’s 2014 study (two years later) found that the number had increased, if only slightly: Half of survey respondents had one full-time or part-time person doing social media. For the remaining half, one quarter used a social media team, the other quarter is ad-libbing it.”
