Social media is a great opportunity for your nonprofit to engage in two-way conversations with those interested in your organization or mission.
Many rush into social media because everyone else is doing it. But it can be much more valuable to your nonprofit if you take a bit of time to set goals and figure out what social media success will look like for your organization.
How Can Social Media Help Your Nonprofit?
Social media can have a variety of benefits depending on how you use it. Some possible benefits include:
- Maintaining relationships with donors and volunteers
- Deepening collaborative relationships with other organizations
- Increasing attendees by promoting upcoming events
- Recruiting new volunteers
- Sharing your nonprofit’s successes including stories and pictures
- Establishing your nonprofit’s authority in your field
- Driving traffic to specific pages on your website
- Showing a more personal side of your nonprofit and the people running it
