Ramp up your online communications with our no-cost workshop about how to coordinate your online communications at your nonprofit.
Many nonprofits find it confusing to manage and effectively coordinate organizational messages and campaigns across the several social media outlets, blogs, and communications channels that exist. This workshop gives nonprofits a framework in which to look at different communications channels and develop an online communications strategy for their organization.
Is all of your online campaign and organizational messaging scheduled and tracked on a unified calendar that is visible to all stakeholders? This session will explain the process of creating and maintaining a messaging calendar, as well as the potential value to your organization. In addition, the design of a “narrative arc” will be described and correlated to calendaring strategies.
Many organizations are using online communications tools but do not keep track of the easily accessible metrics that let them know whether or not they are making progress on their goals. Analytics can be a scary topic for anyone having to answer the questions “is this working?”
ArtSpark and Aspiration hosted a day for artists from the Bay Area and Albuquerque to come together and share stories about their use of social media and online technologies in their work.
With both individual artists and arts organizations present, a wide variety of experiences, successes and obstacles were discussed as participants dove deeper into what has and hasn't worked for their purposes.

Is all of your online campaign and organizational messaging scheduled and tracked on a unified calendar that is visible to all stakeholders? This session will explain the process of creating and maintaining a messaging calendar. In addition, design of “narrative arc” will be described and correlated to calendaring strategies. Participants will be invited to construct their own draft calendars for the campaign or other online communications for which they are currently responsible.
Join us for this training designed for non-profit organizations who are concerned with their online campaigning strategy and communications. While there will be some technical content, the primary focus will be on strategic use of processes and best practices for online campaigning, so don't be scared if you have little tech background.
The training is small and no experience is necessary, space is limited. Laptops are not required, but you may bring one for the Message Calendaring session. We can provide laptops at the training too.
