Nonprofit Social Media: Leverage 50 (Yes, 50) Social Media Sites with Affnetz
Nonprofit social media has become a primary way nonprofits connect with Stakeholders and the community-at-large. According to Hootsuite, a global leader in social media management, there are several benefits to be gained from Nonprofit social media
In seeking to accomplish its mission, a Nonprofit must communicate, educate and advocate. It must reach out to an audience of its existing stakeholders, potential stakeholders and the overall community to support the Nonprofit’s mission. Awareness can be raised via many channels, but today Nonprofit social media provides a lot of bang for the buck.
Nonprofit social media can bring new people into the organization’s community and engage existing Stakeholders. Stakeholders who interact with others in the organization experience a feeling of belonging and a sense of common purpose. Bonds are built that deep Stakeholder commitment for the long run.
Nonprofit social media calls to action can motivate Stakeholders and the greater community to give in the form of time, talent and treasure (financial) in support of the mission. The organization’s calls to action can be amplified via social media by reposts and other sharing which not only extends reach but lends credibility.
Publicizing examples of “mission accomplished” via social media provides evidence of a successful organization to the community. Organizations perceived as successful attract more dollars, volunteers and goodwill.
