Non-profit Social Media Fears Addressed by @juliaCSocial #smm

Many non-profit leaders I talk to express fears, doubts, and concerns about their organization engaging in social media. While I’m very active on social media, I’m certainly not an expert and wouldn’t be comfortable offering too much in the way of advice. Julia Claire Campbell, on the other hand, is an expert. In her post titled “5 Ways to Tackle Your Non-profit’s Fear of Social Media” she does a great job of addressing the issues I often hear. Even if your organization is already active in social media, she offers advice worth hearing and suggests some things you may not have considered.

Is your organization engaging in social media? Do you have policies in place?

I hope you enjoy her post as much as I did.

Here’s a great post I loved from Marc Pitman over at The Fundraising While his post is specific to fundraisers and some of their issues, I found it inspiring. I think his advice could be helpful in professionals in any industry. I particularly liked his idea about actively tracking your time by category, since, like Marc, I, too wear many hats. I’ve just made my list of categories! What would your list  include?

Let’s get tracking!
