Subject: Social Media--Getting Beyond the Buzz Social media can be a powerful tool for for-profit and non-profits alike. But how do you get everyone in your company on board? How do you enable them with the tools and knowledge they need to be effective and efficient using social media at work? We'll talk about ways to use your existing marketing strategies with social media tools and how to reach new networks and connections. Whether you are a nonprofit or for profit company, this will be a useful discussion with actionable info to take away.

  • Convert the naysayers to evangelists by showing them how social media applies to them and their work.
  • Improve the efficiency of your marketing and PR team.
  • Understand how to leverage your existing relationships to expand your reach.

    I was familiar with the basics of social media. I wanted to get information on how to get to the next level. To me this is the how-to plan to realize gains from social media, to get beyond the buzz. The speaker provided a good plan outline and strong suggestions that I can ultilize to attempt to attract new members to my nonprofit. It was very helpful to me.
