Chris Brandt – Social Media from the Top

The Digital Nonprofit is Vancouver’s premier conference for nonprofit leaders engaged in digital transformation. The event is specifically designed to help nonprofits and charities learn about the models and tools needed to succeed.

Social Media from the Top

Should EDs & CEOs be posting on social media?

Chris Brandt, former ED of Music Heals, shares best practices for stewarding relationships and raising money with social media.

Social Media isn’t just your first point of contact with current and prospective donors, volunteers, and the media – it’s often the only one. The risk of not talking is that no one knows that you exist. How would you evaluate your organizations presence on social media? Are you involved in the conversation, either through the org’s channels or your own? You can’t be seen until you learn how to see.
