The influence of social media is pervasive. Everywhere you turn, people are spending more time connecting with one another and staying informed and engaged with local, regional, and national news and events through these ubiquitous communication channels. You know that your school or non-profit organization could do a better job connecting with your constituents through social media, but you are a small team with big goals and have no idea how to start implementing these systems into your work that make sense and ultimately help improve overall engagement with constituents, which leads to improved fundraising performance.

Join Gonser Gerber senior consultant Kent Huyser for this webinar on using social media to engage and connect with your constituents.

The fee is $295 per institution, which allows your entire team the opportunity to participate in this professional development at the same time. If you are a current client of Gonser Gerber Advancement Consulting, that fee is just $145. You will also receive a copy of the presentation and a recording of the webinar with your registration.

Here are some of the topics we will cover:

  • The most important reasons to use social media
  • Efficient ways to engage and connect on social media
  • Coordinating efforts between departments for efficiency and constituency
  • Tracking and measuring engagement through social media
  • Fundraising and social media – options and opinions

This program is designed for new users of social media, or institutions that want to learn more about the ways they can benefit from utilizing social media outlets at their organization.
