Integrating – not just Adding – Social Media for Planned Giving (an Interactive Program)

Friday, April 11, 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. – AN INTERACTIVE PROGRAM

Jessica Best, Community Director for emfluence


Social media has grown faster in the nonprofit and fundraising sector than any other marketing medium before it, largely because it’s accessible and usually cost effective as an outreach medium. But are you just tacking on social media to your current marketing plan – or worse, ONLY doing social media?  The way to get the most out of social media is to fully integrate it into your marketing, public relations, donor outreach and more.  Jessica Best, strategic consultant and community director at Emfluence, discusses how to integrate social media effectively and provides examples of nonprofits who have done it well.
