Are you avoiding the blank page of writing an article, with no idea what to write, and a hundred other things you end up doing instead?

Do you scroll social media for your organization, wishing you had something better to post today?

Creating content doesn’t have to be a headache, it can be fun and easy if we change our mindset and adapt the hacks outlined in this webinar.

This isn’t just the world of content, it’s the world of relationships, audience building, and stewardship online to drive future donations.

But content takes time, so it gets left behind! Sadly though, without YOU creating content, you’re leaving your donors to see nothing but posts about the WE Charity scandal and the latest Kardashian drama!

So if the answer to online presence is more content, the next question is how the heck do you do it?? Nonprofits are so busy. This event will show you HOW to create way more content and reduce the time you spend creating.

With more content you have the chance to connect, learn, improve, and do it all over again.

PS. This podcast is for everyone in your organization, not just the marketing manager. We can all get involved in content!

Social Media Marketing and Analytics for Nonprofits

Social Media Marketing and Analytics for Nonprofits

Welcome to the February 2020 edition of the NetSquared Vancouver podcast. It’s the first of the year after January was cancelled because of ❄️❄️Snowmageddon 2020.❄️❄️

Engagement? Followers? Likes? We’ve all heard the lingo, and some of us probably even write reports on these social media metrics, but what do they mean, and how can we go beyond Facebook analytics to glean real knowledge? How can we get better data to help us inform our decisions?

This month NetSquared Vancouver’s topic is Social Media marketing and Analytics best practices.

Guest experts Charly Jarret and and Katrina Nguyen of the SPCA share case studies from their work with the SPCA.

They covered everything from remarketing and look-alike audiences; to why Facebook penalized you for external links. And they share the eight types of value exchange that you can offer your members in exchange for their contact information.

They key insights for me were that:

  • We shouldn’t fight the platforms — feed them content that is a fit for the platforms and audience expectations, but that the goal should always be to build relationships with your members OUTSIDE the walled gardens of the platforms.
  • Ignore the vanity metrics of Likes and Views. In fact, Charly and Katrina didn’t show ONE facebook or twitter-provided analytics dashboard during the whole hour. All the valuable measurements are happening in Google Analytics, where they have set goals on donations, email sign-ups, and other measurables that deliver value to their organization.

As always the slides are available.

This event was produced by co-organizer Ashleigh Turner!!

The Happy Healthy Nonprofit with Beth Kanter

The Happy Healthy Nonprofit with Beth Kanter
/

This recording from The Digital Nonprofit conference is about how and why it is important to treat self-care and a culture of well-being as an organizational strategy and cultural norm. When self-care initiatives are treated as “extras” instead of being built right into the fabric of an organization’s culture or leadership does not model the behavior, they often fall flat.

Beth shares the latest thinking on self-care and well-being in the nonprofit workplace based on the presenter’s book “The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout.” Going beyond a narrow focus on physical health and wellness, she will share examples and insights from nonprofits that have created and implemented a culture of well-being in the workplaces that supports results.

And be sure to join us on October 6, 2020 for the next edition of The Digital Nonprofit.

In this recording from The Digital Nonprofit conference 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.

And be sure to join us on October 6, 2020 for the next edition of The Digital Nonprofit.
